Caption: No shirt, no shoes, extra service...

Additional Comment:  I didn’t get to skate too much on the trip because of the weather and family time without a separate car, but we did make a few stops here and there to do some. Emilie filmed these. The first spot is a helipad. I really want to go back to it and film more legit tricks…
