Roadtrip: Mike Dimartino in MTL16 août
Lama buddy Mike Dimartino made the trip to Montreal with two of his friends to meet up with team manager Stéphane Bélanger and the rest of the Lama Street Crew. This is the edit that came out of 3 days of riding in the boiling summer streets of the city. Video courtesy of Mike himself and photos courtesy of Blake Johnston.
First spot was one not to be missed when coming to Montreal, the Wallride School.

Stephane could not resist sticking his foot out for some bonus points!
With some rain in the forecast we headed to the Taz Skatepark and rode outside at their DIY Plaza, Project 45.
Mike nailed this hop whip in only 4 tries!
After riding the Taz we called it a day and went out partying in the city with the boys for their first time. Next day we drove up to Parappa's hometown to ride a couple of his local spots.
Mike tailwhiped out of that ledge no problem.
He also barspinned first shot the biggest stairset at the park!
We then headed out to another skatepark nearby where Parappa really put on a show!
His local park and it shows. Everything on demand and first shot!
Parappa obviously got excited and went for a flair shirtless and with a bathing suit... Slipped a pedal on that one.
Last and final day for the boys was spent at the famous Olympic Stadium. Needless to say, those ontario boys were stoked!
Stephane at it again with some good lines.
