“Boschi Pope ended the eventful summer of 2016 with this grand finale of a competition taken place at Hamilton Bridge Skatepark in NYC with guest judges Mike Johnson, Billy O’Neill, and himself. The turnout was amazing with friends and family coming from all over the map to reunite and enjoy not only the skating that took place but also eachother’s company to reminisce and catch up. The vibe was all about good times and nothing but positivity. Also, with the amount of footage, expect a BPSO 2.0 edit in the works somewhere in the near future.” – Boschi Pope.

“It was a project long over due. Terrence and I decided to sneak into the banks on the night of my birthday, and it was dope to be able to skate it and session it for dolo. Terrence and I had planned on doing it for a while but many factors, like cops, construction workers, and many booths where cops are stationed made it difficult, until the night of my Bday. Join us and watch what went down haha” – James Perez.
