Fargo Contest

It is cool when a city shuts down one of the main streets to have a contest. Makes me think of the street contests of the 1980's. How about the Soquel Contest with the ramp over the car. Chad and the guys don't miss the opportunity to shred the streets.

Lil Weezy

Word was Lil Wayne paid some dues over the weekend and got some stitches skating in St. Louis. That guy is amazing. Rap music might not be your thing and there are some strong arguments that the rap was done long ago but his music is some powerful stuff. That is a fact. I bet he gets good at skating because as you may know he works hard.

The pyramids in Mexico are astonishing in their size and detail. Gabriel who is a craftsman himself took some time to visit southern Mexico this summer. Photo is a Mayan pyramid in Chichen Itza. Truly this is amazing place to visit.

Max out yer summer...

Dang! I swam in the ocean this weekend. It was refreshing. The salt in the water reduces swelling and many believe the cold temp works to promote circulation. Made me feel so good. While I'm all chilled out, Mike G shot this pic over the weekend. Ollie in ME. Dig the front hand. Northern crane style? Photo by McKenna. Have a great week.

Ah! Skateboarding is still alive.

Sometimes I'm worried if the old school skate ethos is still alive and well. Just when I'm convinced that we've been sold out, I'm relieved when I see a fine video like this. Do it your f-ing self. Don't wait around for something to happen. Bring it and have a great day.

Papa Jack's is closing

Ollie at Papa Jack's

It isn't the greatest park in the world but we love it, damn it! The City of Malibu is closing Papa Jack's Skatepark in October to allow a supermarket to be built. This one will be less than a mile from another supermarket. Super. Please contact Parks Director Bob Stallings at the City of Malibu to encourage him to find a new home for the skatepark because we need it. You can contact him here. Thanks for your help and please come out and skate our chill park.

Making it work

Mike Gustafson,skateboarding,Sam McKenna

Yes, life can be rough. Maybe you've heard people complain about rough ground that they can't skate. Mike G. and others in places with horrible ground just get out there and get it done. Make yourself responsible to make the best of your situation. When you're done with that check you're at. Or not. There's always a lot of tv to watch. McKenna photo.
