Paul Rodriguez is confident with his trick plan leading up to his battle with Tom Asta at BATB5. Now it's time to execute the plan. Eric Koston lays down the rules and the battle kicks off. Feel the pressure as these pros throw down head to head in one of the most legendary battles ever to go down at the Berrics. In the end, there can be only one winner, but there are definitely no losers.
Consistency, board control and confidence is key to survival in the annual Battle at the Berrics flat ground competition. Leading up to his first round battle VS Tom Asta, Paul spars with good friend and professional skateboarder Manny Santiago to sharpen his skills prior to fight night.
Terry Kennedy and Cyril Jackson kick things off on this new episode of Skate And The City with a session at the downtown LA office parks. After a run-in with a city bus, TK gets a fresh setup at America’s Best Choice skate warehouse. Skateline host Gary Rogers talks about his “shop talk” style of delivering skate news and rumors on his LA-based show and skater Felix Arguelles meets up with Terry at the Staples Center and talks about how skateboarders are part of the culture of LA. And then TK and Cyril shut down the Staples Center.
