Then we went to the skatepark on the waterfront. It's quite the feature of the area, complete with sculptural things you can't actually skate, basketball areas and aimless tourists wandering through. There was even a chap doing some aggressive 'parkour' street dancing. It was hilarious - Sam kept on getting in his way. He would stand there waiting to do a run through the entire park, getting frustrated with Sam, who was just standing there thinking about something. I loved it. But apart from that, the park is a bit too abrupt and collisiony for my liking, apart from that one ledge. Towards the end of the session, Tree started trying to noseslide this ridiculous stomach-high ledge.
Eventually, he got it. It was difficult to do the trick justice photo-wise (the ledge is far higher than it looks in this shot- I can't believe people skate it!), but I enjoyed playing around with angles. After he landed the trick, a young skater appeared out of the shadows with his camera to show Tree his angle. It was way better than mine. Anyway, on the way home we stopped at a pub shaped like a sphinx, then Corio bowl, before talking politics all the way home.
High five about to go down in the background.
