Great EsSkate, South Beach, 2002

Can you believe that after a great dinner and many drinks, then the Urban Assault wind tunnel experiment, an NSP late night party and a bit more debauchery that we're up and ready to skate in the morning? Of course, why else are we here!! The day starts out sunny and bright, later to turn rainy, though as you'll see, the moon will come out -- several moons to be exact. Read on.

One serious skater, has bribed the bobarazzi with her considerable charms to have her photo removed from this page.

Yuk!! Red Bull really sucks!!

The colors fly freely again today.

Is that all Vivian had to show to get her beads? Sunday night will tell!!

Well now you know what I had to show to get my beads. Yes, I have the nerve to publish unflattering pictures of myself (It's the only way I keep most of you from killing me.)
