So I went to the Circa demo yesterday at the JB park, and boy what a good time! As soon as I got there I discovered there was already a demo of sorts going on, and the Circa team wasn't even there yet. Kids were throwing their carcasses down the eight stair as if it was the last trick they'd ever do. There were some sick makes including Nub's ollyless frontside 180, and some cringe-inducing slams as well. The worst of which was poor Steve Roberts who had to bail when someone was walking up the stairs as he was trying a trick down them. I'm not sure if you can tell by the picture but the gash on his chin was deep enough that he had to get eight stitches. He also walked away with a slight concussion and a sprained wrist. So before the actual demo even started Steve got the MVP in my book. And Zurheide gets special honors too for taking him to the hospital and missing the rest of the demo. Meanwhile, as the carnage continued at the stairs, the Circa team showed up and everyone else grabbed their seats around the edge of the park. I sat by the cool kids, Bobby and Jack of course. Everyone who skated ripped, but Ramondetta DESTROYED it. His ollie over the hubba and his frontside flip off the pyramid to flat were definite highlights. And he and the other guys were more than happy a bunch of sign stuff for kids afterward. Ramondetta's general good vibes seemed to seep through his shirt at one point in the shape of a heart. What a rad dude! Anyway, good times for sure. Pratte was definitely impressed, and Drew's mind was zapped as well. Thanks to everyone who came out to watch or vigilantly hucked themselves down the stairs, that was entertaining to say the least. Special thanks to Jason at Infinity for bringing Circa to town! We really appreciate it.
