Sk8terdude at Kona, continued

Although we had torrential downpours at our hotel this morning, the pavement at Kona stayed dry!  Thank you to everyone who put in a good word for us with Mother Nature (or whomever).

We were in the parking lot by 12:45 p.m., with our fingers crossed.  The doors opened at 1 p.m. and Sk8terdude hit the park running (skating)...  Since we were the first and only ones there, I ventured out into the park to shoot some video and some photos (before skateboards started flying every which way).

Here he is on the famous Kona snake run.  (Look for his start way up high near the red fence in the background!)

And here he is standing at the bottom of the 14 foot half-pipe.  As big as it looks in the photo, it's even more impressive in person.  He's outside contemplating dropping in right now, but I can't watch, so I'm inside waiting to hear whether or not he conquers it.
