Another day, another state! Finally we made it to North Carolina and the Double Decker skate park in Fayetteville. There was a big crowd already in attendance when we arrived thanks to an over night skate all night lock in and by the time the Birdhouse crew showed up they could barely contain themselves.

With Hurricane Irene bearing down and potentially wiping out the East Coast the hard decision was made to cancel the weekends events at Virginia Beach (including all the surfing and beach events). We were re-routed inland away from the danger but before we went we wanted to see the power for ourselves. After our beach adventure we headed to Columbia for some well earned rest.

Day 5 and we headed over the border into South Carolina. It was scheduled to be our only day in SC but the weather was about to conspire against us.  That didn’t stop a crowd from turning out at the Buckwalter Skate park in Bluffington.

Day 3 of the Birdhouse MIA to NYC tour and we visit. the legendary KONA skatepark in Jacksonville Florida. This is the oldest skatepark operational in the world and was made even more famous from appearing in the Tony Hawk Pro Skater Video video game.

 

The crowd were super stoked to see us there and even stayed with us while the team skated the park! Sebastian Brock came by and was a huge help, Thanks Sebby!

It was raining all through lunch so it was looking unlikely that Tony and Staab would get to skate the vert ramp. Luckily the sun came out about 45 minutes before the demo started and dried up the huge puddles. Tony took to the vert ramp along with Kevin Staab and a group of locals and some of the Birdhouse skate team. Afterwards we had a quick product toss and decided to get on the road. A huge thanks goes out to Clements and the guys at Skatepark of Tampa for their hospitality. Nobody does it like them.
