well i guess it’s been long enough. here is the AD we ran in the last issue of Focus magazine. Kenshiro Yagi, Backtail
went to the maloof money cup yesterday (it is in my buro) to see all the homies.. it was crazy hot and really freaking dirty.
i never actually went into the event. gave my tickets away. but it was dope to see all the guys from Naysayer, Prize Fighter Cut, KCDC, NYskateboarding.com and more. psyched to have a new epic free park in queens too!
Congratulation to OPEN skater Jason Park. he won the Hawaii stop on the Element 2010 International series.. he will be flow to cali later this year again all the other winners. he will slay it for sure.
OPEN team rider Jason Park just won the Utility Board Supply / DVS get Flow’d video comp. as always, our hats off to Jason.
so finally, the 2nd OPEN deck is done. it’s not the one we promised. and we can’t be sorry enough to everyone about that. but it’s one of those things you can’t undo. pennswood send me a couple decks to check out here in PDX. can i withhold from hooking one up? even though i am on a ian board that is more then good still? only time will tell.
when i get back to NY. ill be hitting up shops, some distro’s, and will get an online store up.
i hate to make the 30s sound old. but in skateboarding. shit gets hurnt in weird ways, and the recovery takes longer. big ledges are hot, but are crazy hard to learn on. so, some people have started work on a new, “open sk, let’s pratice ledge” at BQE. this will be all mumbo jumbo for people outside of the nyc area.
here some snaps of the work so far.
so it’s about 1 foot + high.. with a 1/4″ thick piece of STEEL, 2″ x 2″ on the side. it will be epic fun if not one prys off the edging tonight.. fucking.. skaters.. i just want something nice!!
still more work to do. if you know how. contact me if you want to get some promo under the final coat of poly!!!
the new washington square park is done in NYU. went to check it out with the project bushwick guys.
super busy, and park dept. / security all over it. though they didn’t seem to care till some lady with something up her ass cared. hopefully they’ll post the footage. its all on tape.
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..
a week back? this blogs is only like 10 days old. i posted about my dead xbox, and i made this image. an xbox with a gun to it. today, on gizmodo, is this striking image. i am sure they did not copy me. cause, i don’t have that many readers. just saying. weird.
