The Lake Forest Zoo

How nice of the etnies skatepark of Lake Forest, CA to let us know what’s up. If mandatory full pads and beautiful steel bars caging you in weren’t enough, they just announced more fun stuff coming in 2007. Time to have a nice birthday party:

And on top of that, the good folks over at etnies have absolutely no control over the matter.

Nick Gates, a major force in helping to make skateboarding suck. Thanks dude.
