Mike V. doesn’t quit

We lived in Minneapolis for a summer a few years back. It was so much fun living downtown and being able to walk everywhere and explore the city. While on one of our Saturday excursions, we headed north up Hennepin Ave toward to the Mississippi River and Nicollet Island. We stumbled upon a Zumiez skateboarding demo with riders from the Element team signing photos and skating with the local kids. Of course I wanted to stop and take some photos and see if we could meet anyone. It was in a large parking area across from the library (same large parking area where I got to see a free Howie Day concert). Mike Vallely (Mike V), a rider for Element was on the mini ramp trying a big frontside grab. I kept snapping photos hoping to finally get it when he landed it. These are a few of his attempts and finally…success.
