the crew

when times get rough, people bringing you down, instead of sinking into negativity, take a look around you at all the awesome people that surround you... that's what i do.


from l to r: old man brian, troy eckles, kelly baker, my legs, my love, aaron forjan, deaf alex photo by carl campbell

that day, deaf alex asked me few words and many hand gestures if wrex would go over his head while he does a fakie rock, i told him just ask, he'll do it so we did, and this happend...alex tried the fakie rock and said that wasn't good enough, so he went for the switch blunt and this happened: wrex backside airs over deaf alex's switch blunt! doubles photo by forjan -- so sick!!


and then this happened:

slogans

A slogan is a memorable motto or phrase used in a political, commercial, religious, and other context as a repetitive expression of an idea or purpose.

"we have more fun than you", a slogan originally used by the arizona crew of friends and a past sponsor of your other favorite person to hate...Old Man Army. it is directed at the people that pick apart what we do and who we are, think we sit around talking when we're actually out having fun...so basically directed at all the shit talking backbiters....and it stuck. so it continued to be used when they formed the official company, kinda like zorlac's "shut up and skate". and it most definitely leaves those people feeling what is intended. it's a general statement to haters.

so it's pretty funny when people still get butthurt over the phrase and think it's directed at them. i guess it is since they fit the profile of what i've described. so yah, while you're busy worrying and upset over what we like or dislike, what we do or don't do...we'll still be having more fun than you.

another episode of It Came In The Mail

sharks in the ocean! the new issue of sharkbait is out and it's number 48! this is a zine that is worth seeking out, not just because my numero uno has an interview in it but it's a rad zine covering different aspects of skateboarding that most people might not get a chance to be exposed to on a daily basis...i liked this zine from the first issue i saw because it's open and honest. something you rarely see these days, instead of feeding people what they want to hear, it's awesome to see other people expressing themselves no matter who might get upset... so here's just a tiny glimpse of what you'll find in the zine...support the radness of people by visiting sharklahom and ordering some zines. brad also does cool artwork and skateboards and gear! keep it hella shitty!

you've already seen the cover but here's a reminder...this was a rad day in arizona, we just finished up skating at our favorite session of the week with our homeys "pecos locos" and went to forjan's to take a dip in his empty pool. this pool is not easy like most backyard pools...but wrex loved itand forjan consistently captures the essence...cover shot!

Back To Building!!!


Stoked to get back to what I love, creating... West Point is getting crete', and I will be there helping the build. Stoked to be back on board. Not sure the scene is ready for nomadic pours, since building here seems to be all about claims and notariety. So it's back to the grindstone, and keeping the haters outside the fence. It's small, but it's a beginning.... And it feels good to be back in the saddle again....

boats and hoes!

we got to go back to heber springs last weekend with a couple of friends. one of the reasons i love arkansas is the beauty of the state...if you've never been, you should plan a trip asap. treat yourself right with a dip in a beautiful lake. cliffs to dive from, rope swings, and mother fuckin boats! waterfalls, THE best trout fishing, smoke house breakfast place... i could go on and on...thanks mike for taking us out. had a blast on a much needed mini-vacay!
