Stoke Rekindled

What a great session. New wood, and FINALLY new skate stoke for the New Year. I think mostly I was lacking in skate stoke because of weather. Today was warm, AND we had a full contingent of 'Cretins and friends at the park. It was a "private" session as only old folks were present for about 2 hours. The rain came as I was leaving, but I heard it went away relatively quickly and the session continued 'til 3:00. The roster today included, Me, Skidzilla, Steve-O, Mofo, NoShow, ToneBone, Junior, Travio, Phil AND our long lost Lexington compadre OMP.

The morning started early for Skidz and I. I've been wanting to recreate an OMA skate graphic for quite some time, and finally all the pieces fell into place. Then the shredding began. I actually won't rehash everything this time, you just should have been there. It was great to see everyone, but even better to see everyone together. Here's a few pics from the session, starting with the "Falling Down" deck graphic. Get yourself a deck or a t-shirt with the image at

    I concur with Mr. the Bone :)

    It was an awesome session. And I hope it was the start to a rockin' year down at the extreme park.

    Junior took the splat award. I thought he would cough up a kidney after that slam. No internal bleeding last night, Junior?

    Did you let the folks over at OMA in on your photo shoot? I'm sure they'll get a kick out of it.

    No doubt, Gimpy, you were missed.

    But of course, that was the main reason for doing it. Hell, it's now my avatar, as well as my "Welcome" image for when someone new signs up. My lil' dedication to them for the whole kickass forum and BBQ thing.
