MNS – Monday Night Skate at Houghton Skatepark

image

At a time in rollerblading where sessions are sometimes setup with weeks of social media hype and word of mouth there is an ongoing weekly session EVERY Monday…and I mean EVERY Monday…without it even being said…and that is Long Beach’s Monday Night Skate or MNS for short at Houghton Skatepark.

If you live in the area you definitely will know where Houghton Skatepark is since it is located on the corner of Atlantic Ave & Harding St. on the same block of Jordan High School. All you have to do is show up at anytime between 7-10p.m. and you will run into an amazing group of bladers that skate as if they were filming a Battle My Crew section. Egos are absent here as the family vibe is immediately evident as everybody introduces themselves to everybody no matter who they are. Pros, Ams, Up & Coming, Beginners, Intermediates and Advanced bladers ALL roll together in great weekly sessions that is inspiring.

At anytime you will see great blading from LA natives such Gregory Preston, Steve Cortes, Anthony Williams, Tim Franken, Bo Espino, Mike Obedoza, Jeremy Soderburg, Erick Rodriguez, Sean Wicks, Ryan Santos, James Martinez, Kevon Thompson, Keith Hubbard, Joe Jimenez, Joey Jaime, Chris Allen, Cedric Martin and many, many more. So, if you are ever planning a visit out to LA then definitely save an hour or 3 for MNS. You won’t be disappointed, you’ll be inspired!
