one more

I had to squeeze in just one more, how insane is this kid. Not only does he clear the fence, he gaps the sidewalk too, with a backside 180 flip! Are you kidding me. Nick Dompierre and the rest of the Real team continue to be one of the most underrated skate teams.

Will Skate for Food!

One of the best ads ever. I actually have this t-shirt, even as a kid I recognized its significance and hung on to it. Unlike the countless other skate items that I traded/sold or threw away.

Merry Christmas, see you in the new year.

This weekend at the berrics

Berra and Koston step up. Don't think Berra is going to make it through this round, and how can you not put your money on Koston...should be good.

This weekend at the berrics

This weekend at the berrics a few what should have been decent games of skate were a little underwhelming.
First off Carroll vs. WIlson, two heavy weights but can you ever see their age. Younger dudes pop so much higher, they still have it but definitely not the pop of todays young guns. Good to see Carroll take it, this being his VBS week and all.
Round two, Reynolds vs. Castillo. I honestly thought this would be the better of the two but little d, you let us down. If only there had been a 2 inch manny pad, daniel would have killed. As Reda said "you shoulda poisoned him!"
Speaking of Daniel Castillo, he has to win some lifetime AM award at some skate award show. Seriously, did anyone think he would ever turn pro? Have all the respect in the world for this kid/man sticking to it. Does anyone know how old he really is? Was he like 7 in those world videos, or is he dirty thirty like most of you reading this.

Sunday mail

In December you can get mail 7 days a week, these came today! The pictures do not even come close to showing how amazing these are. I missed out on the Jason Jesse's a few years ago, they had a steel insole for kick starts. There was no way I was missing out on these. From the box to the grips, not to mention the shoes incredible.

Mo takes it!

Another epic battle at the berrics but Mo holds on for the win. Furby what is up with that hair? My two year old son is rockin the same do!

More of Mike V. not Carroll

See more Mike Vallely videos at Shred or Die

As you can tell I am over Mike and his meathead antics. Read recently he is now hosting call in radio show giving relationship advice. Nice Mike, keep up the good work! Here's a little compilation of his career, from good to bad, to good,and back to bad.

Carroll Brothers

Thought I knew alot about the Carroll's, I can't even imagine having a conversation like that with my mother at 15! Despite everything they have gone on to be two of the most successful skaters in the industry, inspiring.

The Vert Button

Not for this dude, Max Schaaf! His parts in Real's Non-Fiction and on were always some of the best vert skating, in my opinion. He is the only guy on vert who would pop out of his lip tricks. Smith grind to ollie out at full speed, back tail to ollie out mach ten. Simple but sick and clean.

For those of you who don't know "the vert button" is something Brian Schaffer from SPOT coined. It used to be that every team had the token vert guy and they always had a part in the video. If they were lucky you watched their part once (the 1st time you see the video) from then on in it was fastforward...hence the vert button.

Max is still killing it on his board and has also made quite a name for himself in the motorcycle world. If you haven't already check out his blog

I know another non-skate post, but what the hell is going on with our government! Liberals get the worst results in recent history and now they might be leading the country...are you fucking kidding me! To top off of Dion is only temporary and Bob Rae is in the running for leadership. Hello, Bob fuckin Rae as our Primeminister! If this goes down I am going to seriously think twice about moving south of the boarder. Is our leadership pool so shallow that Bob Rae is a viable option.

Oh and thanks for making my stocks tank even more boys, we all really needed that. Was that part of your economic plan...fuckers!

Was pretty bummed when I heard they were going exclusively online, but must admit their new digital mag looks good so far. Come to think of it have not seen a real slap mag north of the boarder for some time and have been reading it online for awhile now. Looks like they have used a lot of the suggestions from the slapboards. Already have a good interview with Alex Olsen. Nice work slap!
