Kevin Coakley’s parents live down in the home of the best of news stories ever, Florida. Usually when it gets cold in his beloved New England and New York City he makes the pilgrimage down to Florida to hang with his parents and some of his skate crew down in the sunshine State. Well, while he’s down here he’s filmed a good bit of stuff with Central Florida filmer Frank Branca. Frank was kind enough to compile everything into this nice, long nine minute edit and we would love to share it with you!
