We have had some serious shredding go down on the Tactics ramp recently. Both Lifeblood and Bacon have rolled through the shop in the past week. The Lifeblood team features some of the most brutal riders in the NW including Johnny Turgesen, Cody Lockwood, and Mason Merlino. They were also joined by Super Hessian Steven Reeves and Skeletor. The day kicked off with a “swarm up” on the ramp then over to the Willard double set to film some lines with Steven, Skeletor and Cody. Lots of slams, lots of heel bruises, and Skeletor breaking his rail skating cherry (you killed it man).

After enough heckling and pain everyone rolled back to the Tactics ramp to get heavy for the kids. As the sun set the demo turned into an open skate with half the Lifeblood team eventually hurt or zorched and allowed the local talent to get some exposure. Best trick on the spine, best trick on the vert and best trick on an very sketchy extension all earned locals new decks. *Best trick on the extension was a very close show down between front blunt to ass-drop board focus and front blunt kickflip out but we had to give it to the kickflip.   BBQ was had and the sun set on another great ramp party.

Check some photos and video below.
