...These are all that weird feature;

Then at the very end you can hit a 5 ft high cannon; jib a wall or ride out on a c-rail.

I mainly sessioned the kicker. It took me a couple runs to start landing my straight airs. I was washing out at first so I got used to maintaining a toe edge on the landing. I tried adding a simple indy but never got the grab, got the board up but never grabbed it. Still need to work on air awareness.

After that I went to the flat box for a few hits and sadly only nailed 50/50s. By this point I was tired and didn't have energy to try my board slides.

The price for Hawk Island is $10 for half day 1pm-close (which to me seems like their full day but whatever) but you also have a $3 parking fee to get into the county park. You could plead poverty and they'd waive the fee but I dunno.

IIRC Wednesday is free parking day.

Weekdays they're open from 4pm to 9pm
Weekends they're open from 10am to 9pm

There is a warming fire pit, a warming house and food/drink sold on site in the warming house.
