  A Mini Living Situation  
  Once harsh winter conditions hit, skateboarders will endure any way possible to keep those wheels under their feet. Ryan Pearce decided to build a mini ramp right in the middle of his living room. It's a really fun ramp, but with its super quick trannies it's not exactly an easy feat to do more than a handful of tricks, unless of course you're RP or Dillon. Click here to watch RP and Dillon destroy this ramp (and RP's house).

The Battle at the Berrics finals were last week. Who saw Max and J Lo lurking in the crowd? Malto judged one too...

  Skatepark Rating System  
  Here's a new feature we've just added to the Skatepark Directory. There's now a rating system and each user can rate each park as they see fit and the current rating (and total number of votes) are displayed. (You can only vote once for each park, so no, Ryan Lovell, you can't get on there and vote a million times for Lovell Land).

  Zero & Mystery Event Update  
  Sorry everyone, for the complete chaos in schedule yesterday for the Zero/Mystery event. Due to off-and-on-again rain throughout the day it was simply impossible to schedule anything so we just had to barge it, and those decided to do the same were stoked cause the park dried up quickly after the team arrived and shredding commenced. Unfortunately due to the fact that the weather situation was so sketchy we'd rescheduled the Mystery video premiere only a few hours earlier to be held at River Roll at 9:30 so we had to stick to that plan even through weather might have held out long enough to still premiere the video at Penn Valley, sorry. Still not quite sure how we pulled that one off but it was so much fun. Again, we know everything was utter chaos and sorry we couldn't really give a good answer to all those on the other end of the phone that was ringing literally non-stop since 11am, as much as we wish to possess powers of predicting the future, it's simply not possible and we did the best we could...miraculously everything worked out. Thanks to those who came out and stuck it out.

  Video & Slideshow From Penn Valley Grand Opening  
  A few weekends ago the Escapist team joined Steve Alba and Matt Dove in a demo for the grand opening event for the Penn Valley Skatepark in downtown Kansas City. Although it was hectic with so many people and so many tricks going down everywhere, filmer extraordinaire Ryan Daniel Lovell managed to catch enough tricks to make a short video of the day's event (although unfortunately he left with the Coloradicals before the product toss madness). Aaron Smith snapped quite a few great photos as well and made a slideshow for your viewing pleasure.
