After a 10ish year hiatus BCSD is back for one more time. Everyone skated incredible and sorry to the homies who I missed your clips cause its very hard to capture truly everything but I do my best to make it quality filming and zoom and editing. I am happy with how this turned out because I worked hard and fought a lot to be able to make it so I could document these athletes. If you made it this far I am appreciative and hope you like it. Leave some love in the comments cause that’s all im asking of anyone. With all that being said click play. Enjoy. - Hawke Trackler.
