Grind for Life Series at New Smyrna Beach, Florida: Video, Photos, and Recap

I've got some photos and HiDefJoe has the video. The skateboarding at last weekend's New Smyrna Beach stop of the GFL Series was all over the spectrum of different types and ages of skateboarding as usual, but this time, the bowl portion was most memorable. The street course there is not the best in the world, but just as skateboarders do, you make the best of what you've got. There were parent/child combos, toddlers, teens, girls, grown ass men, and extra grown 50+ men all ripping all day. Thanks to everyone that made it out to another one and to our sponsors for helping us make the event happen: Grind for Life, AYC, MovieTickets.com, Z-Flex, Zumiez, Red Bull, Indy and all the other support you see at TheBoardr.com/GFL.
