Last week I went along with Bob and D Block. The 2 of them had some spots in mind that they wanted to shoot. We went out on the 80 degree day at Dolores Park and headed west towards the beach. We were quickly hit by the cold fog once we got to the panhandle.
good deed of the day
On the way out to the first spot, a lady carrying a new-born child flagged us down to help push her car off the road. I still have a hurt foot, so I just watched.
After pushing all the way out to the beach, we hiked up to this spot the 2 had never seen before. D Block quickly decided on the railhop route into the bank. He successfully pulled that within a couple tries. After we got D Blocks trick, Bob wanted to get a grind in, but the Police showed up and gave Bob a ticket for grinding on the rail! He was just warming up too…
Leaving that spot salty, we headed back towards home when we rolled up to this rail.
Bob wasn’t ready to let a ticket ruin his day, so he started warming up on this rail, and got the courage to try and throw a luc-e down it. He had never grinded a rail this long before so he was a little hesitant. Bob locked into this only 2nd try! Success!! D Block was feeling the momentum in the air, and he got the courage to double peg the rail too! He landed it 2nd try too!
Although the sesh started off long and slow, we managed to pull a really productive day out of it. If you try and go to that spot above be sure to run from the cops, cause they’ll give you a ticket!TAGS: bmx • Bob Randel • d block • hasselblad 500 c/m • olympus xa2
