Tangent – Northwest Is Go!

Northwest Is Go!The Scott Stamnes Memorial Contest at Orcas Island Skatepark.

I recently took a road trip to the Northwest to scope out some new parks and also to DJ a contest with a few skate-rocker bros. We hit some sweet parks built mostly by the Dreamland/Grindline crew: Brookings, Port Orford, Aumsville, Newberg, Donald, Burnside, Ballard, Seattle Center and Grant’s Pass. We also saw the Portland power trio known as Dead Moon rock out the Off Ramp nightclub in Seattle, Washington. Steve Turner from Mudhoney was spotted digging the scene as was Kim Warnick from The Fastbacks. We met lots of rad people and plenty of friendly ladies! It was great!
