Picture This: Free Running in Venice Beach

Posted by Carren Jao Pineda |

In Los Angeles, the beach is just a few minutes away, but I never get to enjoy it. Today is an exception. I took a bit of time to walk on the boardwalk today (thanks to some prodding from a dear friend and editor who needs an article done).

I saw these cool guys a ways off the paved path near Venice's Skate park practicing their own brand of urban acrobatics. Despite what you might presume, the pair are free runners from New York City. They were in town to help a friend move in. While they did entertain tourists and locals alike in California, pretty soon, they'll be heading back east. I'd bet they'll miss California warmth and sunshine though.
