Reggie!



....some park footy that Reggie put together at home in Columbus, GA. Super rad stuff. The filming's a bit jumpy, but nonetheless. Ripping stuff. The kid is killing it. Bender/Love video coming soon. Reggie's gonna burn it down!

Plunkett and dudes....



...went skateboarding. Looked sick!

Hazard!



....If you missed it, you blew it. Good weather. Mass friends. Free food. Big sesh's both inside and out. And Jonah made a good grip of money to re-stock the shop. Thieves suck, but your brothers will be there to back you up......

Dickies.....



.....A lil dan. A lil Pat. Some Devo. Some Dela. Vincent Alvarez! That Kevin dude rips. That Tom dude is good. Digging it.
....Gotta say, I'm stoked that these dudes get to ride for Dickies. I've been a fan for many many years. Even if you wear these for some weird style gimmick, you know that they're tough. Years deep with a pair of $18 pants from the Wal-Mart down the street. As you dudes get older and have to work in "real life situations", you'll find they make tons of shit that lasts many years. Dickies is rad man. These dudes seem to be doing it right.

Deck Specks 'crete!



...the boys added on to the first obstacle. Just in time for the landlord to get pissed about it and hire some dudes from a parking lot to go and beat the shit out of it with sledgehammers. Rad! Spot was super fun. Spot is super gone. Bummer.

Things to consider.....



....As boring or gay as you think it is to give a shit about anything but yourself and making that scrilla, watch this vid that Consolidated made in the early 2000's. This was either just as or just before the big Nike push. And was when you started seeing "real" skateboards in stores like the Hobby Lobby and Dick's Sporting Goods. Birdo makes some good points. He always has.
.....I wear and like Adidas. They last a long ass time. I get them for free. My good friend Bobby works for them. It feels right to support him and his thing. So, I don't know where I fit in to this whole DDI Army thing anymore. Shoes and corporations are a big part of this argument. I guess I'd have to stay with the side of local core shops. And since today is the Pack the Park sesh, I guess I'll say that no matter how long you've been skating or what your age is. If you're not supporting your local park/shop/scene, then don't be surprised when it dries up and goes away. Leaving you in the old K-Mart parking lot bailing three flips until you finally realize life sucks, give in to normal society and head to the club with a Monster Energy hat on. Talking bout how "DC and Tony Hawk was about to sponsor me, but since that park went outta business I'm just laying tile until I can get money to have someone film my web sponsor video. Yeah, it's gonna be sick."
....Here's some articles about things like this and remember.......Zumiez, CCS, that paintball store in town, Dick's, Play It Again Sports, the dude on EBAY with 10 skateboards for $75, the "shoe boutique" with the fresh swag street wear shit, etc. None of those dudes give a fuck about you and your skateboard buddies. They will never sponsor, support or help you in any way, shape or form. You are their customer. Period. They're "just here til it's time to get off work. Oh yeah yeah yeah. Plan B makes good stuff kid. Saw a dude on NBC with that shirt on. He was like Tony Hawk, I think." Those dudes? You wanna support those dudes.

Candler Woods......



....long time friend of ours moved to California from Athens, Ga a year or so ago. Got settled in. Started getting some Birdhouse boards. Skating a lot. Got together with Chris Thiessen and made some stuff happen. Super proud of the kid! He's had the fire in him from Hampton, Ga. To Atlanta. To U.G.A for school. Through graduation. And out to California. Skateboarders with common sense and intelligence are a rare find these days. Candlers got 'em. Candler's down. Thanks for the shout out player! See ya next time around!

Hazard!

....If you're in the loop, you already know. If you're out of it, Hazard got robbed twice in one week. Our boys are hurting. Stormy and I are trying to help them get their store re-stocked by Christmas. Mass interest in this sesh. Alot of people talking about showing up.  This one should be epic......see you there....

I'm feelin it!

DIY Episode 6 With Kyle Berard | Videos | TransWorld SKATEboarding

....rad stuff here. Kyle Berard. Always been one of my favorites. Dude just rips at life. I've seen the first couple of these and got a text today saying that Tom Remillard had a bender shirt on in the newest one. Super stoked! I never met the kid. Always paid attention to his skating and dig his style. I'm assuming Pat has something to do with that. I think they're homies, but whatever.......
.....Hey Tom, Thanks bud!
