Western Wachness

Welcome to more coverage of days past...

Chris didn't understand how to approach the lumpy obstacle. Most of all, he simply didn't care to.

video
Phil showed him how it was done with ease. Don't get rocked on it dude! Harharhar... Get it?

He was disappointed for being dragged back to his old high school again. Sorry bro...

The man, the myth, Adrian Nigman.

Mr. Consistent versus Mr. Consistent.

Commence S.K.A.T.E.

This was how most of our day went.

But all in all, we have to focus on what's really important here boys and girls.

As a last resort, we were all driven to Norwalk Skate Park. It's mostly just because skate parks are the only place we're actually allowed to skate. : (

Dude was on a solid box session.

video
I tried to re-popularize this old trick.

Then I tried to master some 360 revolutions brah! This is as full as it gets on my part... : /  We need to skate more!

Pacifica Pastimes

The homies rolled up all the way from Santa Monica to explore some new terrain. First spot was Pacifica.

We were mobbin' with a deep crew.

Phil met up in his fresh whip. That's right, our lil' Phil is all grown up now.

Old friends reunited once again.

Then Steven went balls out on this nearby hubba. Dan the man was there to capture it all for us while Nathan and I were rockin' the video cameras.

LA Morning
All in all it was a successful days work. Everyone came through in the clutch! Also, show Dan some love and go peep his photostream. Dude is proper!

Back To Berendo

Normally I try to avoid blogging about spots we've already hit, but hey it's better than nothing, right?

Golden boy always be toyin' with his trucks.

Get down with the stay down.

Peeps were hating on my impeccable wall-ride skills. I'm looking at you Alex Miranda!

Determination

We were determined to get clips...

So determined.

video
Less determined.

Sort of determined, again.

video
I was pumped on this nearby manny pad.

Then there was a lack of determination, so we moved on to the next spot...

So determined again, just look at that form!

video
And this is how determination can pay of. With that feeling you get after rolling away from a trick.

Superbowl Sunday

Football? Forget football lets skate! Here go our sessions from last Sunday...

Hahaha... "I was there!" Oh Carlos Lastra, your blindfolded legacy will never die.

Then it was off to Long Beach. I'm still waiting on the most skateboard friendly city in America.

Mike gets back to his manuals.

There was a time when a trick like this was part-worthy.

A baby post about a baby rail. Well, not so baby. It's still a handrail after all.
