Todd returns...

Todd injuries

So where the hell have you been?
Not that too many people would have noticed, but there hasn't been anything new from me in quite some time. On my first skate trip since recovering from a dislocated/fractured ankle, I managed to break my wrist and hand. That injury wouldn't have been too bad If I hadn't then broken the orbital socket in my face. The real downside is that I figured the plastic surgeon could have fixed up the rest of my face while he was in there, but unfortunately, I look exactly like I did before.

Back in action

Mike G back tail in Portland Maine


Mike Gustafson lives in Maine where he humbly holds it
down. Maine is beautiful state but it is cold. Anyone who can
skate hard through such cold weather has real love for
skating. Thanks to Mike and all the other skaters ripping
in places with very cold weather.

Skate camp paradise

Skate camp mini ramp
Randy and Mark in the High Sierra

Wow!!! If you like to camp and skate, this place is probably the most amazing place ever.  I love both and I did not want to leave.  You literally are on the shore of the lake while skating great skate ramps all around it.  The atmosphere of the surrounding trees, being able to swim, canoe, and most important skate, man, what more can you ask for.  I will be there every summer.  Thanks again to Mike Manidis and all the counselors involved.

Nick is an innovator and he's much more motivated than the average person. This is just one possible outcome of his motivation and ingenuity. Ollie through the window.
