Just went skating twice (in same day) over the Holiday weekend with my boarder buddy Ian. The temps are already in the triple digits here in Vegas,so I gotta make sure I'm acclimated to the Desert skating conditions. :)
It got me thinking to year's past & problems/complaints other skaters had. People were HOT! The heat ought to be self-evident, but you can't say it enough. Drink WATER!! I don't know what you can really do to prepare yourself locally if you don't live in a desert already.....work-out in a dry sauna??? I don't know. I drink lots of water AND lots of sports drinks to replenish eloctrolytes & I'm fine. but I live & work here in it so I'm acclimated. That's why all the skateparks are @ night. I'd do them even later (cooler) but city parks all close @ 10pm.
Anyway, my buddy was good enough to film me yesterday @ the 2 parks we hit. I thought I'd include them, along with some older stuff from the other parks, on this year's tour so you guys had an idea of the parks here in Sin City.....
Here's the outdoor park (not on tour) we hit while waiting for Area 702 to Open yesterday:
