Bob Burnquist's Dreamland reimagined
Bob Burnquist's Dreamland makeover
On Sunday, January 12, Bob Burnquist invited a handful of skateboarders to come break in his newly redone bowl. Bob gave new life to his famous backyard vert ramp, and skatepark builders Grindline came in and poured over the old ramp. The end result is incredible -- it's faster and a little bit taller and tighter all over. This is an overview of the whole bowl. In the photo on the left you can see the old ramp buried under six inches of fresh concrete.

Dave Duncan, Lincoln Ueda
Lincoln Ueda is one of the best people to watch ride a skateboard. He throws huge proper airs, one after another. Here we have none other than Dave Duncan on the mic hyping Lincoln up on this over head high body jar.
Evan "Big E" Doherty can spin. He was landing back to back 540s all day. Here is "Big E" with one of many 540s he pulled off throughout the day.
X Games Skate Vert veteran PLG was in attendance. He was cruising on and off throughout the day. This was a simple trick for him: nosebone to fakie.
It's always a pleasure to watch Cab skate. He's full of classic style and tricks, and you can't go wrong with a good frontside invert. There were a bunch of photographers on the deck so I stepped back for a bit and took off the fisheye -- I want to see Dave Swift's photo, looks like he got the money shot.
Willis Kimbel was skating all day, sometimes with pads and sometimes without. Here we have the no pads version with an Andrecht. He wanted to air into it and I think I accomplished what he wanted, in his words "just before my paw grabs coping."
