Orlando Trip 1/29/11

This past Saturday The crew split up with some of us heading north to Gainesville & the rest of us headed over to Orlando for the day. I'm sure Scott will report on here how things went up in Gainesville but this write up is about our trip to Orlando which consisted of Tyson Stripling, Jonathan Hadley, Stephen Oliveira, & Myself. We warmed up at a perfect ledge spot where Jonathan came up on a line. Tyson had a pretty bangin' line but unfortunately it didn't come together with last trick which he was trying to learn while filming. Don't worry Tyson! We'll go back & you'll get it man! We then went to the infamous Gateway Ledges where normally we get sucked into a black hole & then half the day is gone. Jonathan had a sick line worked out but the second I went to get my camera out & setup a random Orange County Public Schools security officer pulls up & gave us the boot. Guess it was just fate. Jonathan was dying to switch flip the Oak Grove Dub Set so we made sure he got what he wanted & he not only got it with ease, but also got two angles & an awesome photo with Stephen. Ben Eubank & crew met up there then we made our way to this bank to wall spot. Ben got a switch backside wallride then we were out to this gnarley ditch spot. The ditch spot dished out a lot of punishment so we decided to finish out the day in Downtown. Ben got a line at D-Block then I had to call it quits after a bad head cold started to get the best of me. Tyson says it was from the Baconator I had for dinner. Haha! Thanks Stephen for shooting the photos below!
