Kyle Berard interviewed at Virgina Beach Skatepark
If you were one of the few that braved the cold for the Utopia Contest, then you know Kyle Berard, if not you’ll be seeing him in the future. We tracked Kyle down to Virgina Beach were he was hanging with his friends at the Virgina Beach Skatepark blasting the pyramids and slant to slants as well as commanding respect from the kids and amping up the older guys.
Kyle’s style is as smooth as they come and about as consistent as they get. If he shows up in your town, just kick back and watch the show.
