Super Session IV
Vert riders from the all over the country flew, drove, and caravanned to Ollie’s Skate Park located in Kentucky this past weekend (2-6-16). Some from So Cal, giving up the warmth of their local parks for the chill of back east. Dave Allen flew in from the UK. Florida was again well represented Michigan too. The annual gathering of vert brothers in the dead of winter, was another success.
“It’s the people that go that make it”- Peter Furnee SS Organizer.
You will find Ollie’s in Florence Kentucky just outside Cincinnati. The ramp is 56′ foot wide. 11’ trannie with 2′ of vert. The extension known as The Boomstone is 13’tranny and 2’vert and is 16’ wide with pool coping and tile. Some notable tricks on the Boomstone were: Kevin Reynolds alley oop up to Texas Plant, Derek Krasauskas front nose blunt, and young Wyatt Wisenbaker with a front side invert.
