i knew manuals were going to come back in. i was right. but who saw late flips making a come back.. and in amazing ways too. nollie late flip nose slide? nose grind to nollie front foot late flip out.
very cool. i am excited about these thing.. is the manual pad the new ledge?
edit: i here by say that manny mania this year, will be one of the more important comps of the year. the burg, and manny mania will set the standard for the next couple years. like.. hardflip 180 over something, or gap, to manual, to some trick out. (maybe a manny revert in there?)
what do you guys think of the boards with carbon fiber inlays? element has their push series. but they go for like 80$ or something. alien workshop just (?) came out with their moonpop series. also with top layer carbon inlays. anyone tried one of these? are they pop-tasitic? or pure voodoo? maybe element, or alien workshop would hook me up with one to review? hmmm? element? AWS?
lets take a break, and push things forward. a couple older streets videos go for my music picks of the week. people need to make more videos for shit. half the stuff i wanted to pick. i could not find any kind of stream for.
well i have to go work this week. going to work for me is like entering a black hole. i never know what to expect, and its always crazier then i think its going to be. because i can’t comprehend it yet.
so updates will probably be pretty crap this week. like they were this weekend. but, did anyone even using the internet this weekend?
i have been wondering though. as i ask people about skateboard deck sizes. only 1 person i have met, rides an 8″ or bigger deck. yet when i go to a skate shop. it seems like at least half of the decks are 8″ or bigger. am i missing something here?
i mean, yeah, more space for graphics? but 8″& 8″ pluses are just tanks! 7.7x seems to be popular, also 7.6x. but its still like 3 to 1 on the 7.6, though 7.6 riders seem to be the most passionate about skateboarding. im sure this all means something, but right now, my brain can’t do the math.
another math problem. i am hopefully about to receive 100 skateboard decks. umm.. where the fuck am i gonna put these things? anyone have any neat deck storage ideas!!?? im desperate!
shugo tokumaru.. everything! shugo was the first person i signed to music related. he’s since moved on to bigger things. but he keeps making better and better music. i have no doubt that hes the most talented musicians recording and performing right now.
here’s a clip that has lots of “behind the scene” of his east coast tour for his last LP
the new washington square park is done in NYU. went to check it out with the project bushwick guys.

i bet its skate stopped by the end of summer. its all pure butter. nonstop. oh man, i forgot everyones names. someone tell me who this is. gnar backside flip over bench/ledge..
