SUPERIOR — On Monday, July 25, one only needed to look to the sky to see a pair of juniors-to-be at Superior High School soaring above the ramps at the skate park in Superior.

Taking advantage of more normal temperatures returning to the Northland, Jack Banks and Graham Ward brought their skateboards back to the park to hit the ramps and work on tricks.

“It was so hot, you’d get burned touching the rail,” Banks said.

The Superior duo said they were happy to get back to skating during the day.
