Sunday turned out to be an epic day at the 1st Annual King of Bales Rails.They were calling for warm weather and rain, however we got some blue sky, snow, warm weather a great turn out. The event brought in known locals from Ontario's park scene and some others from all over the city.
For the set up we had a flat down box with a small gap and a 15ft. down rail. Participants were definitely stoked on the set up. Some of the participants couldn't believe that the tiny hill even existed in Toronto.
