When I first started to ride The Kitchen Skatepark there were big name riders going there. But there were also local riders throwing insane tricks and some even topped the superstar pros. Ben Eylander was one that topped the pros with doing double back flips, 540 flairs and many other top notch tricks. From doing all these tricks he still had his moments of failure such as braking his back on a double back flip then 9 months later stomping one on the last booter, trying a 360 double backflip… that did end that well. One thing that Ben didn’t do was let the tricks get the best of him and thats what I aspire towards and what I hope you reading this do to.
