Alex Olson kills it. If you live in L.A. go take a look at the bump over the fence he kickflips at the end of his part. It is off La Cienega and it is huge. Props to him. Amazing stuff.

Road Trip ~ 10 Year Anniversary

It was 10 years ago that we went on this epic journey! The world has changed so much since then. The 9-11 events hadn't happened. People didn't have smartphones, skype or youtube. None of that stuff was going on. We wanted to skate Vegas and go to the Grand Canyon so that's what we did. It was myself, Abijah, Alfonso, Bennett, Chon, Charlie, Frankie, Fernando, Jima, Raul and Randy. What a trip! I don't think you can throw rocks at the Hoover Dam or shoot video in casinos or clubs now but back then you could just go for it. For better or worse this is how we were.

Ditch Day

This ditch day in El Paso was a great one. Rudy was our tour guide and he hooked it up. We shredded lots of great stuff but this ditch is something special. Tricks by Randy, Gabe, Todd and Ryan. Later that day we triumphantly escaped the clutches of the federal authorities who detained us and searched the van. It was a memorable day for sure.
