Cool, Osiris, Skatelab and banked slalom.

I just bought my first pair of non-Converse skateboard shoes in a long time, I chose Osiris.

Skatelab is a great place to skate, awesome museum worthy of a few pictures, the bowl and ramps are fun to ride.

I can only imagine the line in the place with some oddly placed cone on the vert.

Sounds like a blast...
