February in North Dakota

Don't cry about the weather because you could be living in North Dakota where the winter weather is f-ing awful. When the bad weather breaks, you have to skate. Chad Heller and friends manage to squeeze in some skating on a sunny but cold day in ND. Looks like rain here in So Cal all weekend.

Here's Koki's Mag Minute from Clair Chang's Toasted 2 video. Koki is an amazing skater who can rip anything. Koki and Clair ride for Harmony Bearings and both of these guys are highly motivated and really good at a lot of different things. If you could place bets on people, I'd bet on these guys.
