dont go chasing waterfalls......

will took a digger to the dome at bainbridge this day.  Hit the waterfall/saddle, and instead of compressing and pumping it, he just took flight straight to concussion land and a seeper above his eye.  Yeh Will!


skate bum.....



cams full belly........

thru the interweb, i have become informed that Cam and Binger and maybe even Woodchip have secured sponsorship.  Sandwich sponsorship!!!!  Good work boys!



this is ocean........


happy thanksgiving....

being thakful is important.  remember?  Anyways what better a present than a some new clips of Cam and his best friend Albert!!!

Heres a photo i shot of cam ten years ago in his mom-made tiger suit at the crapditch!!!!



I stumbled upon these photos VIA pirate mike's instagram (@tigrero74).  I'm not sure of the fellow creating these masks, but his insta name is @klutcho.  Give his page a peep, as i barely paroosed yet saw sum rad stuff.  I have seen a lot of board involved art and in a general overly-understimulating use, this is a rad new take.




stole this one from the overlord of the GeewaBoltCo, Mr. Drew Steadham.

and heres a old photo i took of O.G. tortilla master, Dog whisperer, Cam Barrett at that spot i built by my old house.

yes, that is a pop outta a blunt.

and one of Peter Gunn at bainbridge island in it's early years.



rainy day brain waves......

the following video is of G.T.  If that wasn't enough reason to watch, it's all shot on 16mm.  The best.



a giant pair of.........

scrotum pants?  Sure, why not.


I'm not a big fan of element.......

but Madars, how could you not be.  This part is gold! 


while tilling up the earth.......

a few days ago, pre perma frost I uncovered a little piece of history.  It was my first skateboard which I had purchased with the money i had earned from collecting up our horses turdz when i was 6.  30 years ago!!  Not sure how it got buried a foot beneath the dirt or where the trucks and wheels went but stoked to find it.  Turns out friend of the tortilla and Geezer Ward boss, Drew Stedham has one just like it.



i always thought........

segways were the dumbest thing.  even more so than scooters.  But this is staight BOSS!  Ride yer segway like Julius fucking Ceaser!



satans beverage.......

i don't drink the stuff and i don't support it.  whatever you do with or wanna believe is up to you but this is clearly TRUTH!


falls here.....

and winter is knocking.  The northwest can feel like a grim zone in these months but it's part of what makes being a skateboarder from this area so special.


hand burnt slide.

john motta has always been one of my favorites.




is still ripping.  have a look at sum recent snaps swooped of the gram.....

ummmmm. rad!

mellow dip.



if you are into.....

capturing skateboarding or any moments in life give this a watch and dive into the minds of some of my favorite creative individuals in our culture.

i spent 14 long years in Bellingham.  I skated from the day i moved up there and explored it's in and outs to the fullest.  At least i thought.  This part is insane, not in just the tricks, but more so the spots.  Like all northwest spots, they are crust, but the furthur up you go.....  No one ever has skated 90% of the stuff in this edit and no one ever will.  In fact you wouldn't even see it as a spot.




cruising with Blair and Lester.  A few days ago.

digital blair.......

will never look as good as film blair.

the above and remaining photos shot on yaschicaT4 or CanonAE1.

more pics from this day soon.



online parts....

are immediate gratification.  We all enjoy seeing them but like so many before, i will forget this one within a week.  So while posting it here isn't cementing it into a hard copy format, I will a few years from now, browse the archives and watch Phil Zwijsen destroy everything in his path.



lost angeles......

Lost Angeles.

Situated in Freetown Christiania, Wonderland is the result of an autonomous community, disenfranchised with the mundane culture of modern society. A place for the disillusioned youth of Copenhagen to escape and forge their own traditions.
Desillusion Magazine presents ‘Lost Angeles’, an insight into one of the rarest independent skate spots on the planet.

La Paz, Bolivia......

i posted the full Levis La Paz video awhile back.  Go back and watch it if you didn't.  Here's a new kinda behind the scenes clip of what went on down in south america.


speacking of vics market..........

you saw this right.  well have another look.




we have all been guilty(well mostly) of complaining about are local skate arena.  when they are first built anything new is fun, exciting and a new challenge, but after time the lackluster-ness sets in and we begin to grumble.  And although any of these parks which follow would be considered a gem, if found in the streets and would still be fun to a point, it's just kinda comical that this is the outcome of a citys resources.

#The Great Skate Boys

these guys never cease to get my hyped or make me feel like i'm lazy when it comes to skateboarding.  They are always skating and I know they have on numerous times skated from the seattle area to as far as tacoma, (a long long way to skate) but this is insane.  Although i'm truthfully not that suprised they are making this adventure.  good luck fellas!  They made the local news so have a look...



bellingham memories......

i guess cory kennedy lives in bellingham now.  it's real great to see this clip as it's a reminder of what my daily grind consisted of, for 14 years up in that town up the I-5 corridor, twenty five minutes away from the canadian border.  and the skating.....  Yes the park skating is fun to watch, but the street?  Bellingham doesn't have a single smooth spot and well the crusty ones mostly suck.  The ollie up, backside flip is nuts.  the best thing i have seen in them streets perhaps, and the back smith on the armory rail?  I've taken a lot of visiting friends there and only two, well three, have skated it.  It's really tall, and round, and against a tree, and if you land it, you start a steep hill bomb which ends in a twenty stair.  great clip.  got me all reminiscent and stoked for today.

here is one i shot of Jihad quite some years ago on the rail.




of my friends justin and dylan was all time a couple weekends ago.  Just now getting the film back.
