The last week end of summer, rhymes with a lot of skate events around the city. We’ve decided to head to Boucherville, for their fourth SkateFest edition, organized by Frosted Skateboards.
Boucherville City has a long history of legendary skateboarders, and the local skatepark is here as a reminder of what it takes to have good skateboarders. It’s a very old concrete skatepark, way ahead of its time. Good steep transitions and a lot of combination of spots you need to learn and where you can practice your basics street and transition skills.
J.F. Gagné, laces-less, showed to the kids what it takes to do the show.
