These two guys are sick...

Jimax made this video of two new MXMXM / Munchies team riders. This video has some great tranny skating and some super-pop ledge skating. Jima knows how to drop a sick video and these guys are great. I want to go to Japan.

Go Skateboarding Day

skateboarding, Go Skateboarding Day

Don't even get Gary started on Go Skateboarding Day. He'll let you know. Whether you're down for the whole G.S.D. thing or not, it makes sense to get your skate on if you can. As you get older it gets a little tougher. So whoever you are, wherever you are, roll around a bit if you can. Hippies dig the Solstice Action. Tony have a Happy Birthday. Pic is locals at PJ's Skatepark in Malibu. Wild in the Streets in L.A. today.

How to Smith grind

So there some skate tricks that are named after people. The Smith grind is named after its inventor Mike Smith, the vert skater who rode for Madrid and others and the ollie is named after Alan "Ollie" Gelfand. There must be more. Let me know if you can think of any. Check out Randy's Smith grind video and have a good weekend.

Skate Cuba

Havana Cuba skatepark,skateboarding

I was in Cuba several weeks ago and it was great. It was different than what many of us are used to. For example, they don't have any skate shops and many people don't seem to have enough to eat. The people are super nice and it is beautiful place. You can connect Cuban skaters here at Amigo Skate Cuba and get a feel for the scene. Check it out and have a good week.

Back in the Day: Keenan Milton

Keenan Milton was the nicest guy in skateboarding. He was cool to everyone and he ripped with great style. Keenan was friends to lots of different people from all different backgrounds. My experience was that he made you feel appreciated for whatever you had to offer. He definitely ripped and you can watch lots of videos of that. If you want to be like he was, start by being cool and nice to everyone.
