Wild in the Park - Toronto
I took my son, Tommy, and his pal Leandro to Toronto this weekend for a skateboard competition. It was held at a new plaza in the Beaches neighbourhood. Plazas, as opposed to "parks" are the new thing in skateboarding as they appeal to "street" riders who launch themselves off steps, slide down handrails and flip their boards in all manner of acrobatic ways. There were about 100 participants and a really high level of competition.
