pig wheels recently gave me this ad in skateboarder mag. this spot, although it had been skated in the past, was super chunked up at the bottom and im sure this is why the kid or somebody else had not done this maneuver before i got there. so when jeff king called me and said he has this new show on fuel tv, and they want to shoot something with me , maybe a section on bondo-ing a spot, hey.... i've been wanting to do this trick forever. ever since i saw muska skate it like 3 years ago. so a little bondo, (you can dee it at the bottom there)danozone filmed it , along with laban and ted. i'm pushing for the footage to be my guest trick in featch's part in the new transworld vid. by the way, i pulled this trick and then broke my wrist trying it one last time for a different angle. sometimes you just gotta be satisfied yo.

we ate at this place called COOKOUT every night. we spent way too much time in that goddamn van. and we got completely rained out in DC . but this trip was rad. thanks to all the dudes who made it happen. look for the full 12 page feature in the skateboard mag sometime this summer.

rodent took us to this spot that is so rad that im not allowed to show any photos of it on this blog. he wants the mag to publish them first. so here is alll i can give you. it was rad. it was 5 in the morning. it was wet. it was full of mud. the KID and rodent swept and shovelled all night so we could get busy. wait for the article, i guess. sorry.

at one of the spots we skated last night this dude was hanging out. we decided that since dyet and ball were gone, there was enough room in the van to tale on another team member, so here he is. CURLY , the newest member of the posse' . enjoy the ride, dude.
