I finally got to skate with Chris O’Brien and Jake Wade of Team Tangy on Saturday for a full day of skating and filming in the unseasonably warm 63*F weather. Our first stop of the day was at the infamous “Freeride Heaven,” a 12% grade hill with perfect pavement that, mixed with the temperature, allowed for some buttery slides that left ‘thane lines for DAYS. After getting some footage and our fill of freeriding, we headed over to East Rock for a few downhill runs (unfortunately the helmet cam footage got deleted…) to close out the day.
Make sure you watch it in the full HD goodness for full effect. Also, shout outs to East Coast extraordinair Bruce Clark who makes a quick appearance in green during that tripple standy scene.
