Andrew Lazaruk passed through Seattle this weekend on his annual journey to California. We took some time to finish up filming for an Embassy edit that’s been coming together for a while. We also went to Beacon Hill Skatepark and shot the photo that everyone takes there.
Milton Skatepark is covered in pool coping and different variations of “no bikes” tags. One of the things I like about Washington parks is that the builders were never afraid to build unconventional and challenging setups – Milton is like that. The walls are steep and the park has many different transitions. Not all of the lines work, but figuring out how to ride the park is challenging and fun. This tire slide was in a particularly difficult spot, but Andrew is pretty good at figuring out lines.
Seattle skatepark builders are often guilty of building bmx parks. This step up hip out of the bowl at Judkins is a prime example. Here Lazer finishes off a sunny evening with a 360 x-up.
