Grind for Life Series at Ramp 48 in Fort Lauderdale

Posted by Jorge Angel aka Porpe on Monday, May 19, 2014

This past weekend was very eventful for the skateboarding world. Street League Pro Open went down in Los Angeles, most of The Boardr crew was in Las Vegas for the Zappos Rideshop, and Mr. Grind for Life himself, Mike Rogers, was in Orange County, California for the Vans Pool Party. But the most important event of the weekend was the Grind for Life Series at Ramp 48 in Ft. Lauderdale. Here are the photos, videos, and results.

This was my first time at Ramp 48. I have to say that the park is pretty fun. Looking forward to coming back.
