"Ben was the first person I brought to this former BMX dirt park that was located in Portland, Ore. At first Ben and I got all sorts of strange looks for walking into the park with our skateboards and a ton of camera gear. I think one of the bikers even cracked a joke about the skatepark being a couple miles down the street," says Ray. "But the bikers quickly went from making fun of us to taking out their cellphones to record Ben blasting this ollie over this set of dirt doubles."
