Patrick Van Pool takes a moment to grind a bend Friday, Sept. 15, at Marine Park in Juneau. Skateboarders could be seen across the park taking advantage of the lack of rain and bright sun. Van Pool said he closed his shop to enjoy the good weather last week. He is owner of Sequence, a homegrown skateboarding shop, which has two stores - Downtown in the Miner's Mercantile Mall on Front Street and in Mendenhall Mall.
