This years Halloween Hellraiser was the perfect ending to a crazy weekend. Few costumes were present but the overall holiday spirit was in full effect, or rather the sense that everyone was a bit hung-over/over tired.
As always it was put on by Open Road of NY, Billy Rohan, and Alex Corporan.. Rohan was obviously in a costume; wearing Nikes this outing. This got off to a rough start, dunion devision. None of those kids killed it in any sense of the word. Things picked up as some real skating started but there was a lack of genuine excitement throughout the whole event.. Either way Ishod Wair took it again.. Julian Heller in Second and Sean Powderly from Baltimore.. All out of towners..NY, step up your game..
We rolled through Philadelphia this weekend.. By "We" I mean several skaters from NYC, NJ, and one Australian.. We got a chance to see almost everything that this 'great' city had to offer..From hood ass gay dudes, chunder on the front steps of an upscale high rise, to the suburbs with a mini-mansion everywhere you looked..
As always we created a lot of attention, however negative/positive it may have been.. Rolling down the highway getting grilled as fuck , skate rats tailing only to blow up the spot, and ay-ing and oh-ing at any girl that was remotely attractive..
Skating went down, and it went down pretty hard.. Here are some of the photos that I snapped..look forward to a full article in the 3rd issue of Topic East Coast..
