We’re Gonna Mesh You
Mesh Skatepark became a Florida icon, and like anyone else who’s been there, I’m going to
mesh miss it. In other words, Chad is closing the park, after giving it all he’s got trying to keep it on its feet. You can read more about it here in an interview with Chad.
It’s been a while since I’ve been there, two years actually, but fortunately I shot a few photos while I was there. I think they ended up getting sat on at a couple magazines, and never used, so this may be the first time you’ve seen them (although I also posted one or two of them on the site in the past). The shot above of Mike Cottle and Joey Juaristi took us a few tries to get, as the timing of Joey’s turndown while Mike was in a foot-jam toothpick wasn’t the easiest thing to make happen. I could be wrong, but I don’t think it ever ran in print. BMX Plus was going to use it, and then pulled some pages that month, pushed it back to the next, and so on and so on… I think it just sat there. Again, these shots are from 2007. I particularly like the fisheye shot of Mark Mulville after the jump.
