We skate. We rule.

8:30 am: Warehouse session on a 2' quarter pipe. What a blast. 5 friends, a couple of wives, a kiddo, and tunes. How many boards should you bring to such a session? Paul says 3. Skidzilla started his birthday off with a fresh hair-do(n't) - the infamous FauxHawk. It really didn't look that bad, 'cept that he's 39!
10:30 am: Off to a birthday brunch at Skidz house. Damn, his woman can cook! Wives rule. Roadrash and bloody wreck stories were shared while we ate. Mmm mmm good. The kiddo helped dad open gifts which included an excellent haul. Fresh ProDesigned knee pads, skatemag subscript, and a cool painting representin' the fam. The "Day of Dave" was already a success.
I owe much to him for allowing me to ride his coattails and premiering Lil'Tony's Sessions & Roadtrips 2005 video. I'm deep in debt here 'cause not only did he help complete the project and do awesome dvd authoring, he got us all access to a killer venue for the screening... Next door in a super fresh basement theater on a 6' screen! Thanks again Werle! Even the crappy mpeg sections of the vid looked so much better on a real screen. (I'd been working on it for weeks, the largest screen being the camera screen at 2 1/2"!) Everyone loved the vid and props, and jabs, were thrown to all. Now the challenge is how to get Tony his copy, personally, not just sending it to the corporate office. (Tony=Tony Hawk for the pedestrians reading the blog. You'll learn to speak Concretin the more you read and hang with us.)
A good session, great food, good vid, and too much beer, made me useless for much more than typing for the rest of the day. Thanks for a great day everyone. Here's to tons more of these all year!
I've also made a public committment to edit vid footage as I go this year, preventing a last minute freak out for the next premier. You may even see the occasional clips and/or images from sessions and trips here. I really shouldn't say that shtuff with so many witnesses.
Keep Skating. Don't Quit.
