BroFile #8: Ned Simpson
The other day I headed down to the notorious Thomson Park to get a few photos of local legend Ned Simpson. The one thing I noticed instantly about Ned is he’s happy, loving life. Day to day tasks include working at the New Brighton DC outlet store, skating the mini ramp there, them heading to TP to skate some more, pretty sweet. He put on a good show with some tricks that don’t come around that often like some pretty stylish airwalks, judo airs, and rocket airs to name a few. Although some of these didn’t get stomped for the photos, I’m sure with a little more time they would have been. Over to Ned…
