Spring has Sprung

A few documented, righteous sessions went down this week. It must be spring! FINALLY, some warm weather!!

First stop: The Widow Maker, a 7 foot tall "mini" ramp monstrosity that resides in the back 40 of The Roth Estate. Four people: much gnar! Phil was bustin 3 foot BS Airs. I've never seen him do 'em, but, clearly they are not an issue. He was bustin' nose picks, and fakie airs, as well. Just to remind us it is HIS ramp, after all.

Radley was back skatin' the ramp that gimped him. He was clearly not intimidated as he put a hurtin back on it. To add insult to injury he put on some fake teeth, and a china-man's hat and thumped it some more. Take THAT you sniveling little 7 foot bee-otch!

Jon Z - aka The Z-Monster - decided that he would deal his punishment in the form of a front-side ollie to smith. They started out as sweet little slashers and ended up with a massive pop out and a resounding smack back in.

Yours truly? I stunk it up with some ugly socks, a couple of FS Airs, and a promise to come back and bring 'em higher!

You can see all photos with a clickety here

Sessions two and three both captured neatly in one photo set right here

The abbreviated version is in the comic below. It doesn't fully capture the gnar, the sphincter puckering, the camaraderie, stink, angst, and/or joviality that goes along with a session with The Concretins. Nor does it show the awe and inspiration bestowed upon us by watching some out-of-towners shred up the home court. For this we say, "Thank You! and "Come back anytime!"

    It did feel good to skate in warmer weather.

    Skidzilla's front side airs are looking damn good...over the coping...scary.
