Onward...

The search for Animal Chin continues... on the East coast... He has been spotted in a coastal neighborhood just north of Kitty Hawk called Duck. I bet we'll find him... It can't be a coincidence that Cretins and Kooks from all over the country are converging on several backyard skate/swimmers this weekend... It just can't be.

It really is too bad you can't join us. The stoke, the camaraderie, the pools, the beach, the beer... Levels of epicicity(tm) that are unprecedented. I dare say higher than those reached in Arizona, twice.

If you're in the area, look out for the Cretins. You'll know if you see them. (Trust me.) If you do spot them, don't cross the street. Give us a wave. Say hi. Hell, buy us a drink. (No Irish Car Bombs, please.)

If(when) we find Animal Chin, I'll be sure to tell him you said hi.

Last Session . . . ?



The video companion to Nick's post below. Found out it's time for a new cam battery so didn't get all the footage I would have liked.  Sometimes ya gotta make due with what ya got. Here it is:

The End... and the Beginning...

This weekend marked the end of an era... the TajMaWall mini-ramp shall be sessioned no more. We put a good hurtin' of grinds, slides, rock-n-rolls, and even INVERTS on it (well, not all of us) but we had a good last session. But fear not, it shall live again. We will rebuild it, bigger, better, faster, and still in control of the Cretins... I can't wait Travio. I envy your membership to the club of F.R.O.s. (ramp owners)

This weekend also was the beginning of the Kentucky Derby Festival. Thunder Over Louisville! is a gigantic Air Show with amazing demonstrations by several of our armed forces most bad ass aircraft. I knew the F-22 Stealth Fighter was awesome, but to see it stall and hang in the vertical position, then pitch forward and stall and hang in a nose down position was mind blowing. Even a self-induced falling like a rock flat spin was not a problem for this machine. Opponents will say it's built for destruction, but I don't care... it's bad ass and I hope we NEVER have to use it for it's intended purpose. If our enemies had seen the demo, I believe they'd shake our hands and say have a nice day, thank you very much. Seriously, it was impressive.

However, as much as I love the sound of a jet fighter screaming over head, it was not what got me super stoked. A 28 minute fireworks show didn't do it either.

THIS is the greatest highlight of the day... THIS is the BEGINNING I've been anticipating...
