After a half hour sprint, everyone needs some fuel. Best part is when your exhausted body has to work another 4 miles to get to that fuel, so our trek towards the BBQ began.
Naturally, we weren’t alone and cruised past Bikes N Boards’ Andy, who managed to mess up his foot right before the bomb and had to be on foot the rest of the weekend, and whom I’d properly meet later on.
I couldn’t resist snapping some pics of the Brooklynscape either.
Water break about halfway was an absolute must too, especially with headwind lagging our arrival.
And finally we made it to the fun madness-
Yet another public service announcement by Ian.
And then the sweet, sweet food-
REY burgers to go with your trucks anyone?
DB boards had a little demo display set up in the grass-
And people were bustin tricks in the basketball court as usual-
And of course the New York’s finest since this was a legal and legitimate after-event
Race naturally wasn’t without some casualties this year either-
And some creative threads were rocked-
Giveaways occurred with the crowds resembling seagulls-
And plenty of usual costumes were worn, since Bomb is skaters’ early Halloween like Comic Con is for us geeks
The mysterious Samurai was there with his Bombin board deco that I saw the night before-
Saw a Flexdex Fat Daddy used right-
And then, unfortunately, BBQ got broken up due to kids climbing the fences of the basketball court, so the afterparties began much earlier than expected. So I set sail once again towards the usual deli across the highway overpass.
Next up, Saturday, the Afterparty.
