Skater Island



Nick Ferreira; Skater Island; Middletown, R.I.; 2001?

There was this local at the Island that everyone called Kid Rock. You could write a book about this dude and not even scratch the surface, but I'll say this: He had a cobra tattooed on the side of his shaved head. Anyway, I was riding with him one night and somebody did a peg grind in the bowl. He turned to me and said, pegs hit the coping, like swords claashing.

That's pretty much what's going on here. Holeshot prez slashing the jersey barrier at the late Skater Island skatepark. So good.
