Gainesville, FL is well known for the spots at the University of Florida, but not a lot of people know that the Community College on the North end of town has a lot of great stuff too. And the main things it has going is that it’s all covered and it takes a while for security to make it’s way around to find you, all of which makes it a great rainy weekend spot. This day was one of those, we must have had 6 cars full of homies in town and once it started raining we all headed there.
There was a great 4 or 5 person session going down on this rail, and I was filming a line with someone else at the time but I took 5 minutes to snap a few photos. Not sure that this photo does the trick justice, the rail is really super close to the wall and not exactly low. By the time security finally caught up with us, the rail looked like someone had been beating on it with a sledge hammer and was being held into the wall by two screws.
Unlike the rail, Nick was the only one skating this wall. He landed his wallride in about 3 tries and then went on to do at least 8 more, giving everybody around plenty of time to film, get photos, and instagram it.
