We hit up the LES/Coleman skate park today to celebrate the 5th annual Harold Hunter Day, remembering a true New York skateboarding legend. DJ Smoke LES spun some beats, Steve Rodriguez MC’d while the Zoo York team was out in full support, giving everyone a chance to skate with Chaz Ortiz and Brandon Westgate while Eli Reed & Zered Basset chilled with the crowd. Billy Rohan and Chad Muska (skating an old Cab board) also skated in the mix.
The best trick contest kicked off with a bs heelflip over the pyramid in memory of Harold. Shane McGrane landed it first and walked away the winner. Doogie (5Boro) came in 2nd with a huge bs 360. After the best trick wrapped up, it was time for the product toss where mass amounts of decks, shirts, stickers, grip tape & hats were chucked into the crowd.
Thanks to the Harold Hunter Foundation for putting the event together, all the sponsors and especially everyone who came out for Harold… Legends Never Die!
