I attend the Beijing go skate day event, there are some photos…

中午1点钟, 滑手们都来到了金融界的大黑台地点集合, 这也是北京滑板日活动的第一站.

北京站的负责人是Brian Smith

第一站的活动是Best trick比赛

比赛中, 北京老滑手冰峰是最突出的一个, 先后完成了triple flip, 手抓板, 大乱, 赢了vans纪念滑板, 毛巾, 眼镜等等各种奖品


Best trick之后的娱乐项目是Ollie挑战


第一站活动结束, 三辆大巴准点来接滑手们去第二站建国门. 和以前的vans night一样, 人太多, 坐不下.


今天CCTV的”巅峰时刻”也来现场采访拍摄了, 不知道他们作出来的节目又要变成什么样…捏把汗

为了取个景容易吗, 感谢Jeremy爬上爬下

活动开始了, 第一个游戏就是掷滑板动作色子作动作

色子每一面都有一个动作名字, 掷到哪个作哪个, 成功了就有奖品

第二个活动是GAME OF S.K.A.T.E.比赛

杨利伟也从太空赶回来参加滑板日, 等等, 奥, 看错了, 原来是庞斌, 热吗?

xx说正在家干活, 看了我的微博就跑来了


Brian说, 时间不早了, 大黑坡咱们就不去了, 直接酒吧喝起来吧.

到了骑车电影院里的两个好朋友酒吧, 酒吧前面的草地上搭了个miniramp, 可惜就今天一晚, 明天就撤了.

为了取景, 哥们再次翻墙+爬梯子, 作个网站容易吗我

全自助, 吹风筒是亮点. 我几次鼓起勇气冲进人群希望可以抢到点吃的都有失败告终.

这个特别神的哥们要倒立drop in, 真勇


来人那…送东西了… 场下全乱了, 滑板, 鞋子, tee乱飞, 下面乱抢
