Along with the customary fly rods, bed rolls and tents, the crew brought their shred sticks in search of "that super old skatepark deep in the Sierras.” Miles from any actual pavement or civilization, they discovered a sweet little skate spot in the form of a smooth prehistoric surface on an elevated rock ridge.

The big mountain they pass at the beginning is Tallac.”
