So theres this new hardcore sport happening within the FGFS scene called “Plankin‘.” It wasn’t long after getting to our first spot which we took a ghetto detour to that Sam and Colin were getting some Planking shots. This spot was good for Planking but kinda weird for riding. This wooden park had all kinds of weird things that were sort of rideable, I didn’t get any decent shots there besides the one of Colin eating the peanut butter out of the ground. The soft floor around the playground was tearing apart, waking on it felt like walking in mud and Colin tore some up to taste the insides YUMMM. The rain was coming our way so we headed to an area we would be able to take shelter which ended up being the old trains on Falls. Here Sam fell flat on his face doing a trick he nailed first try, met his buddy Popeye who walked over just to ask Sam to feel his bicep, and he ran over my light stand (I caught it before the strobe hit the ground) which is cool since I carry junk stands with me so I can trash or ditch if I need to cover my bag for rain. I came home thinking I had no shots, Christina came out but her eyes are close to being swollen shut from some sort of allergic reaction, Sam is battered, Colin is tired, Dan has a bent fork and the rain was coming. I guess it was a little better than we thought. Colin was basically nailing flat ground 360ºs which I hope he locks down soon. Check the day HERE.
