weird out....

  Came across this on the Polar blog. Pontus and Polar and No-complies can do no wrong. The dude is killing it lately. If you haven't seen his stuff and scene, please do yourself a favor and go here to get motivated. So stoked on his stuff and can't wait to see it at shops in the U.S.
   The other is kind of noticeable after staring at the photo for a few minutes. What the hell kinda park is this?  I know the kids and contests organizers want the hottest and hardest tricks, but c'mon! This is fucking ridiculous!!! Micro sized skateparks and contests are complete B.S. These are fucking professional skateboarders. I'm expecting a little more than flatbars and 1' wedge ramps from the kiddie course.

The bender kids.....



...Chase and Cameron are fucking weird. I love it.

Cuckoo's Nest shop vid thing....




Super stoked the shop guys found this and got it online. Trippy, weird, artsy, random and alot of WTF's make this one of my favorite shop vids I've seen in a long while. These dudes are on another level. Now get back to your video/photo shoot schedule.....

Ben rippin....



....Ben's been gettin it going lately! Rippage, traveling, gettin a box from these dudes. He seems stoked. Makes me stoked. He's either living in the Deck Specks warehouse with the crew or working there. Or maybe both. I dunno. I can't get him on the phone before 2:30pm. Sometimes I'll get annoyed by it.....but then I think back to when I used to do that.....makes me happy for the kid. Keep 'er rippy, Ben. We're skating next week! I'll hit you up this weekend....

Hazard!!

 ....Jona's been doing rad shit for a long time now. Keeping Hazard going for many years, raising kids, hunting, skating and building. He's been talking about putting in a vert ramp for quite a while now. The trend is here, especially in the south, and the kids are grown.....let's keep progressing, in skating and life. Give 'em some tools and let 'em learn. Most of these kids will be doing some type of manual labor work in a few years anyways.....a head start in life never hurts.....
....10'6" x 32' wide.....Right in the middle of summer. It's a cooker in there, but the sesh's have been going off.

Guaran-damn-tee-ya-boy,



...this shit gone be crazy as hell!!!

....Scotty Wagoner, creator of The Grime and Grit and Bender dude por vida, is gettin the dudes together to kill themselves for the fun of it all. Many people are gonna be in it. Few will get the coveted "video part". Atlanta Hates Us video number 2. This one will be hellacious.

Skate it!

 Skate it or hang it was a few weeks ago. It was unreal. People skating through the streets. Ramp set-ups. 5boro dudes. Everyone you haven't seen in months or years was there checkin the shit out. Reliving that childhood skateshop feel. Alot of pointing and "No Way!" were thrown towards the walls of boards. Most agreed that so much stuff was going on, that we'd have to come back to absorb all the rad. Here, Old Man Rob and Andy Howell discuss the physics of nollies......
Couple old looking farts here huh? Dude on left, was on the Animal Chin Ramp build crew and had a photo doing a FS air on a 2x6 skateboard. Dude on the right, skater of the year '78 and brought punk rock into skating.....this was all sitting on the side of Peachtree Street on a Saturday afternoon.
 Chase got all fan out style and was asking everyone for a quarter when he saw Steve Olson outside....I asked Chase, "What's with the quarter dude?" "Guarte! Haven't you ever seen the Santa Cruz Guarte vid!"
This kid has been a fan of Lance Mountain's skating since like 5 minutes ago when he asked him "Hey, are you sponsored?"...

Dan rip....



If you think this looked easy for him....it was. Lots of rad stuff coming up next year that'll have this dude's name on it........
