At work I’ve been invited on a project that involves sampling for oil in Unalaska. I was scanning through some pictures of the town online and found photos of a decent looking skatepark and some nice ledges. Some of you are probably wondering what the heck Unalaska is (there are a few non-Alaskans that read this I think…), if you’ve ever seen the show “Deadliest Catch” on Discovery, it’s the Island that Dutch Harbor is on- way out on the Aleutian chain, about half way to Russia. How crazy is it that our little activity has made it to such obscure places? I realize that skating can probably take most of the credit for that but there is a sub box in that park, which is not really a standard skate obstacle; I’d like to think that that park gets ridden. This would be an awesome place for a weekend filming trip if plane tickets weren’t rediculously expensive.
No big news of late, we’re still looking for a new place to dig.
keep checking back. aaron and i are working on something that should be pretty fun, will produce a couple of web edits, and some silly prizes. im amped you should be to.
This was up a few days ago on the lotek site, I thought it did a great job of capturing the vibe of trailriding.
It was an awesome memorial day. Rode some bikes, tried to climb a mountain, wittled myself a spatula. This is the web video that Brian’s been working on, I really enjoyed it. I can’t get vimeo stuff to imbed for some reason, so you’ll just have to click that link.
check back for bike checks in the next couple of days.
