1 day - Four Parks

OMP Roadtrip, the first Chapter of Pros and Concretins: Sessions & Roadtrips 2007. Here, we hit some parks closer to Paul's house. I'm not sure we saved him any gas, but it was a simpler time and people didn't worry about such frivolities as burning gas.

Amusement Park of Life

First, an inspirational skate-high of the MegaRamp contest, followed the very next day by the sorrow of losing a pro-skater idol from my youth, Ray Underhill to a Chordoma brain tumor, then a week off from work and getting hit with a stomach virus the last half of the week (essentially quarantining myself from the baby), lots of well wishes from family and friends, then a week of stressful work (which always follows a vacation), and then a beautiful weather weekend with 2 awesome skate sessions... all to be capped off with a car wreck with the wife and child in the car, where the car is likely totalled, AND the other driver fled the scene.

Life is indeed a roller coaster. The most important thing is we are all ok and uninjured from the wreck. I am in a weird self-aware state of mind now. Suddenly I realize what being a grown up means, what being a Dad means. What's really important in life. Family, Friends, and Health. Everything else is bullshit. Well, not skateboarding. That's important bullshit. ;)

- Taking one for the team. Thanks Cretin-mobile. I'll miss you.

- Gnarboy Gimpy showing his gnar. That's vert bitches!

- Travis has been cured of fs gayness.

- Ward has FS Rocks on lock.

- And he can sweep the hip transfer under the rug.

- OMP floats over steel.

- OMP showing us how to grind the bowl.

- Fkn Skidzilla goin' FS in the bowl. Wish I could.

- The pipe misses OMP when he's gone. No other Cretin touches it there.

- Steve-O makes a triumphant return! He just wants to keep the shirt.

- Nikoli fakie disaster...

- ... testing the OMA wood. It can take it.

- Nose stall by the fuzzy bear.

- Junior likes hiphop.

Drop a comment and then go hug your kids/family/wife/dog/significant other... tell 'em Nik sent ya. Then go skate!

Coming Soon!

The editing was complete in April. The jacket design is at the printer. I'm working on the image for the disk face and then the package is ready for world wide distribution. Afterwards, we plan to sit back and bask in the spoils of stardom. I will attempt to make weekly posts with DVD Chapters. Here are the intro segments for a quick peak.

Concretins Role Call - Ain't we purdy?

Long Lost Cretin spotted at 5K

Long Lost Concretin and "want-to-be Skater" OMP
was spotted a the Mid Summer Night's run 5K road race in Lexington, KY
this past weekend.

When interviewed about the improptu outing he said he hadn't run in 25 years but thought two weeks training was enough to bust out a 5K.
This reporter's opinion is that the Concretin lifestyle is keeping him in shape
because he covered the course in 22 minutes & change and seemed to do it with ease.
He also mentioned that he had been inspired by other Concretins that are doing very
well with their running. The interview was ended quickly when a little old Chinese
man in a Old straw hat and black Kung Fu uniform rolled by on a skateboard and
Wisked OMP away.
