the skating: The vert ramp shows at at ASR itself were some of the best I have ever seen. Both decks were filled with eager madmen on skateboards. Two or three dropping in at a time was a norm. These rippers would launch up an air and look across to see if the other guy bailed out. There were lots of over head high airs, nollies, switch riding, and twisting and drifting spins. This was premium action. During our stay we also visited the Encinitas YMCA. They have a very large park filled with skaters of every level. In the vert ramp/half bowl we found Jason Ellis and friends throwing down. Jason is shown in the below sequence.
