Ring Punk

Only Santa Monica is cool enough to encourage world class gymnastics on their beach. These are only a few of the many rings, high rings, parallel bars, tight ropes and vaulting horses they've set up on the beach. I don't no how long they've been there but I do know a counter -culture exists because of what's known as "the rings." On any given day you can see high level gymnastics performed by people ("ring punks" say's Cory) that spend all of their time there. It's like Cirque du soleil for free and on the beach. People spinning and flying 15' in the air, walking on taught ropes or doing a hand stand on top of a single pole. Only in California......
