What are the odds of a sick new spot getting built right under your nose? A friend of Emerica tipped us off to a brand-new spot that was reportedly just completed and ready to skate. Not ones to let an opportunity go to waste, Heath Kirchart, Kevin Long, Braydon Szafranski and Brandon Westgate were down to roll, so we jumped in the van and went to go check it out.
Unfortunately, we weren't the first to arrive. Seems like others had caught wind of the freshness and beat us to the punch. With the Internet, nothing can be kept secret these days, I guess.
Unfazed, Heath, Kevin and Brandon got to work. Braydon, always the showman, took center stage and proceeded to call out the deeds of his fellow Emericans.
Of course, word spread fast that Emerica was in town, and it wasn't long until the spot started to heat up. Crowds of innocent bystanders became victim to the hypnotizing spell of skateboarding as a once unknown spot suddenly became the center of attention. Not one to get sucked up into the hype, Ed Templeton showed up to give his fellow Emericans some much needed support.
Even Ed couldn't calm the masses, so after a successful session, we had to get out before things got too crazy. At a certain point, you just have to understand your position and relinquish the controls. Hopefully, we can keep the secret a bit longer next time.
