My little son @skater_micah dropping in on the old @xgames vert ramp at @encinitasymcaskatepark 😱 When Micah first dropped into this beast last year when he was 9, it was one of the happiest moments of his life I’ve seen him experience of pure joy and exhilaration. Over the years the structure of the vert has been needing some serious reinforcement, and after being closed for months, sadly it now looks like it will be torn down. I’m kind of bummed to see this little piece of skate history disappear that generations of legendary skaters enjoyed over the years including Tony Hawk, Riley Hawk, Danny Way, Bucky Lasek, Pierre-Luc Gagnon, Shaun White, Tom Schaar, Mitchie Bruscoe, Jake Brown, Bob Burnquist, Andy Macdonald and Mike McGill to name a few. At a time when skateboarding nearly died out, The Encinitas Y Park became one of the few skate parks to have ramps, and became the epicenter for vert skating for nearly two decades. I just hope that if they do tear it down it will be replaced with something that continues the stoke of skating for generations to come. I know my son is going to miss it and I’ll miss watching him skate it... 🙏🏽 (insert skate emogi here) .
