This was my favorite video part in my favorite video back when I was a young dude. Stevie represented the East Coast ledge skaters to the fullest and so many kids from the East were mad proud of his skating. The Reason is one of my all time favorite pieces of art. I think it is safe to call it that. Enjoy.

BS flip in Havana
I just got back from an amazing skate trip to Cuba. You may know that Cuba is a Communist island nation that has weather like Florida, very hot and humid. We went there to hook up skaters in Cuba because people are poor, life is hard and there aren't any skate shops. Going there made me feel lucky to have some of the things we take for granted, starting with clean water and plenty to eat. The people were great hosts and it is a beautiful place. Click on the pics to see a gallery. Thanks to everyone who made the trip great.

Gnarkansaw's Nick Gibson headed north to Herman MO to skate a legendary spot tucked back in the woods. I always love seeing spots like this and this one is sick. Cool spot, cool vibe. You can check out Herman's Hole at www.hermannshole.blogspot.com
and the local scene at www.kingshighwayskateboarding.blogspot.com Thanks to the owner JP for hosting. Good times were had by all.
Getting it done.

This one's for all the Pasadena Homies growing up skating in the early 90's. Pat was a local legend. I remember watching his part in the Powell Parelta Video, Celebrity Tropical Fish (VHS tape,) and going to all the spots he skated and trying to do the same lines he did at those spots. Sadly he passed away prematurely in a car crash. miss you man! check it.

El Tepeyac East L.A. - The Hollenbeck Burrito! This is the ish!
My friend Drew and I were on a hunt for a new burrito spot that I was told about but the directions were so vague that we ended up here. Maybe you've watched Man vs Food and know that this place is famous for having the Manuel's special.(look it up). This thing is like the size of a newborn baby. If you can finish this then it's free or you win a trip to the bathroom or something. Anyways, the Hollenbeck is a half the size version of the Manuel's Special. My friend and I split it and it was perfect as we were both stuffed. Defintely a stop on the burrito tour. This gets 4.5 burritos out of five because I was too full. Go there and who knows maybe Manuel might come through with a shot of tequila. Its not unheard of.

Ah, seems like it was yesterday. Billy had the energy of fifty or sixty men and it was always a party when you rolled with him. His back tailslides and back heelflips were among the most stylish. Here's his part from L.A. County. Have a great week.

Here's James Juarez tailsliding a roof in Lowcard #38. Not the cover pic but the ad in color. For some of us it is like a weight has been lifted now that Osama bin Laden is gone. Although his killing doesn't bring back those lost, it's fortunate to be able to have some closure and justice. Enjoy your health and freedom and have an excellent week.
