The skate world was hit with some despairing news recently; the infamous Clipper ledge is soon to be rendered un-skateable. But, rather than wallowing in sorrow, Thrasher Mag organized and hosted one last epic session at the legendary hubba- Bust or Bail 2. This isn’t a normal contest by any means; rather than the skater vs. skater format that goes against the most basic of the principals of skateboarding, Thrasher was tossing cash for tribute tricks and NBD’s. Clipper has seen it’s fair share of gnarly skateboarding over the years and has taken it’s cut of victims. Bust or Bail 2 was no exception to this, heavy NBD’s and a slew of noteworthy tribute tricks made the Ripper at Clipper a perfect good-bye to a spot that holds so much history.
