It’s pretty awesome seeing some of the “older” guys sticking around and riding BMX longer than we have seen in the past. 5050 Skatepark threw a Old Man night to let some of the older guys get a session in without tripping over all the kids on scooters or feeling way old when a 12 year old shows up and throws down better riding, haha. Although the quality is a little rough, this BMX video has some solid riding in it.
While most places were closed on Christmas day, 5050 Skatepark kept their doors open and held a big session with a few of the locals that rolled through. Check out some highlights from the day in the BMX video above. Looks like it was a productive day to us!
“Instead of hanging out with the family all Christmas Day. 5050 Skatepark locals all met up on Christmas Day and Paul Marten Filmed and Edited this Cool Edit.
Riders Are Alex Avilla, Joe Irlinger, Henry Kropp, Charlie Quigley, and Nick Gregoreadis”
We have seen Zack Gerber front flip a lot of stuff in his days. There was the time he front flips from two roofs and the time he front flipped off an up rail, but it’s safe to say this is another noteable one from him. During the Looking For Spots DVD premiere at 5050 Skatepark, Zack launched one off this 8″ tall kicker like it was nothing. Talk about pure madness.
Below is a second angle that’s clearer.
If you’re going to run a business in this day and age, you really can’t be stuck to doing just one thing… Especially when you run a skatepark. 5050 Skatepark is about as diverse as they come and offer a lot of different services and options all under one roof. This quick video shows just that… Take a look.
