Red Bull Skateboarding talks to Kevin Kowalski about wild animals, backyard bowls and going upside down, to fakie. Check out the full interview here.
The first phase of Lincoln City’s Kirtsis Skatepark was completed in the summer of 1999. Fifteen years later, this world renowned shred zone still reigns in as one of the gnarliest and most creative forms of skate-able concrete in the country. It was one of the first sanctioned skateparks Mark Scott and crew were offered outside of what they did underneath the Burnside Bridge in Portland, Oregon. It now has 5 phases with a 6th phase sometime in the future and weighs in at 40,000 square feet.
Have a look at the celebration session with Kevin Kowalski, Mark Scott, Alex Foy, Sarah Scanlan and others.
