Skate Footage

Posted by on June 7 at 13:50 PM

Here’s a video follow-up to this week’s feature story about Kate Martin’s Greenwood skate spot, part of her crusade to convince the city to build skateparks in great locations (and until then, her own front yard will have to suffice).

Talented neighborhood teen Erik Janecke pulls off an impressive “tre flip,” as the kids call ita 360 degree kick flip. Having never stepped on a skateboard without promptly falling off, I’m in awe.

(I’m guessing one of Kate’s boys filmed the brief clip, and someone added fancy slo-mo effects. Props to them.)
