Thaynan recently went pro for Enjoi Skateboards. He was surprised by the news at this very spot by friends and teammates with his pro board. I’ve admired his raw talent and unorthodox approach to skating for several years now, especially when I saw his Oververt part. I knew that in going to such an iconic city and spot, I would likely run into a few pros, but it was great to come across someone who was as friendly and fun to watch as he is. Both of these tricks were part of longer, far more tech lines, but there are few things better than classic tricks done at a classic spot, with style.
