Prescott Park Sessions: A New Year’s Montage

This was put together from the extra footage I have shot so far, and I figure I’ll whip up a little video every month with any footy that isn’t being used for another projectIf anyone wants to film something let me know. 

In this video we have Scott Davis, Peter Sundt, Billy Clark, DJ Orlando, Jonah Barnes, Kronik Mike, Bridger Pierson, Kyle Capka, and Kramer Karlson. Special bail appearances by Mikey Powlas and Parker Crandall, and a little camera help from Ryan Cedro.

Kyle Capka

Kyle likes progression. If he doesn’t land a trick he tries it over and over.  Even if he lands it he’ll do it again to make it better.  Yesterday I watched him do kickflips over all the different pyramids at the park one after another.

Kyle also likes transition.  He was one of the few to wear a helmet but it looks like he has lost it, even though he is now doing serious backside airs a foot over coping in the deep end of the kidney bowlThey were good enough to make me wonder if he should put the helmet back on.

A few years ago I came up with a set of questions about skateboarding.  These were Kyle’s answers.
