hoopla rider, Annika Vrklan and her family helped raise funds for the new Encinitas YMCA skatepark. In return for their help (and other families' help too) the YMCA held a "Skate with the Pros" session to thank everyone for their contributions. Tony Hawk, Ryan Sheckler, Neal Mims, Andy MacDonald, Adam Taylor and others were there skating with the kids.
