Super Session is a annual winter gathering in Florence Kentucky. Vert brothers from across the country converge on this small town to rip, rampage and party. Peter Furnee started SS to get a few friends together while the back yard and park ramps are all frozen over. SS has grown and attracts new friends each year. The 3rd installment at Ollie’s Skate Park, featured the modification of the over vert “Boomstone” to a 3ft extension topping out at 15ft.
Seasoned vets like Henry Gutierrez flew in. 50+ any still going strong.
Andy Macdonald made his first SS and brought a Positiv vibe. Andy spent 14 hrs in flying time from San Diego to Newark then to Ky. 4hrs of it snowed in on the tarmac.
Tate Carew killed it all weekend and never stopped skating. 540s, big tweaked airs, lip tricks and a few bangers on the Boomstone.
Collin Graham was my favorite over all ripper. Huge boneless off the Boom. I gave him a Vert Skateboarding hoody for that make. Oh, did I mention the generous sponsors donated gear to be given out for ripping? Well its all apart of SS.
Yes, there was even some doubles action with Paul Zitzer and Andy Macdonald.
Check out some footage from SSIII! Thanks Kyle Tabor for the vid!
Thanks goes out to Peter Furnee for his organization and endless energy to pull SS off. Big thanks to Ollies Skate Park for being a great host housing such a massive Vert Ramp. Of course all of the goodies handed out by Ace Trucks, Dakine, Bones Wheels, Movietickets.com, Skeleton Key, Chivaz. Vert Skateboarding was proud to be apart of SS again this year. So make plans to join us at Super Session 4. Great people, great skating, great memories.
