When Nyquist moved to town, he agreed to donate wood and time as long as he could have some say in the layout of Fun Spot, his new local park in Santa Cruz, Calif. His dedication paid off, because lines like this 360 no-hander to big one-handed x-up over the hip are pretty typical to any session here.
