*Holy Day Session

Skidzilla can add Gnar to any session... just with his presence... but again I find myself wondering what meds he's taking to up the endocrine! Every carve had speed, pivots were dialed, (almost)every grind was on purpose, and every run a marathon. Followed by coughin' and hackin'. "I feel better, seriously." Whatever Skidz. Maybe "swelling of the orbs" and/or "seepage of gnar" is a side effect of the pills.

Mofo and Trav were there for a 1 week reunion of 2/3rds of the Roadtrip crew... Rippage was still in our heads, and transferred well to the urethane and our home 'crete. Mofo fought the bank for a tre flip - so close - only a warmer session away. It sucks skating in the cold, though it wasn't as cold as last weekend. But the long fs 5-0s in 6' were enough rippage for me, but of course he went on with blunt-pivot-rocknroll madness, with fs salad grinds. (Damn that trick encyclopedia!) Trav got dizzy workin' on 50-50 stalls and grinds (we gotta learn fs!) then went and worked the deep end, smooth. I stood around more than usual and just watched - but trying to barge it in my runs like Dave had been, I'm thinkin 'bout a 6' roll-in... His drop-in into the 12' bowl was buttery and perfect, twice. Dammit Dave. Just when I was feeling good about my own progress... distraction... But datz cool. I had a couple of good runs but I want more... Skate like Skidzilla, and it'll be my next session! Keep it up old man. (pun not initially intended) "Yea, dats whut she sed."

*Today is the anniversary of the day the world stopped and I jumped on. Happy Birthday to me! Just 4 years ago I was legal to be a Concretin... Even though it wasn't official, it wasn't long after that that I met some other officially old dudes - and together, we became 'Cretins. Thanks for the Birthday Session skaters! (and thanks for the box o' "vintage" skatemags Mofo. No porn. Whatta jip! But whose autograph is on the issue of "ThisOldHouse" magazine? I'm not kidding!)
