very thankful i was able to shred this warm day.
this trip was cool i went with non-skaters but they were fun to hang out with.


we rode the amtrack train from chicago to kalamazoo.
i like riding the train but the 2 hour journey is kind of a perfect amount of time to be on the train.


it takes 4 hours to ride to Detroit, a city i have not been to but think that would be fun to do.
that is all for now.
keep your quest for stoken alive

thanks for the reply!
yeah it wasn't too steep. it was built like a skatepark bank. something you do not see very often. i was surprised i did the backside flip. i had to absorb some vitamin D along with it. i'm not sure what else kalamazoo has to offer besides some unique skatespots but that is alone, a reason to make a weekend trip there

Fav skateboarding channel ever dude I swear! so f gnarly as that hadrail's end.

❤️ thank you for the kind words
yes those kinks at the end of the handrail are gnarly!
i wanted to crook the rail but the run up was way off. had to come at it at pretty much a 90 degree angle.

What a good spot Kalamazoo has🔥🎥
