skated all day. got some cool lines and single tricks at martin county high, then headed into uncharted territory to check out some "fogt spots." we struck gold. the video's looking good so far--four and a half minutes of edited keeper footage. more tomorrow.
here's the plan. at the end of the month, i'm going to put out a mini-video with 3 full parts--john, brandon, and fogt, plus whatever homies that get some tricks in. i'm coming to gainesville after new years, so think of some spots to film at--i want to film a whole gainesville part in the days i'm up there. so man up, fuck the cold, and let's all go skating. you guys are getting soft, just skating possum creek all the time--it's time to bring it back to the streets! jimmy, steve, james, shawn, chuey, dante, cornell, michael, erik....get your shit ready and let's do this. this is also the first filming trip up there for mandible claw 2.
here's some old parts from the dudes. their new parts are going to be pretty nuts. fogt has been skating really, really hard, too--2 broken boards in 2 days.
camera's getting repaired, will have it back soon. they saved the tape, thank the lord. i've been in winter haven for a few days; i've skated the only spot available here, which is a steep driveway on the side of a gravel hill. i'm coming home tomorrow--let's skate, stuart dudes.
there's a great mike york interview up on chrome ball. check it out.
after an awesome day of skating today, and after john and brandon got 2 or 3 sick clips each, i fell on a rock while skating back to my car, and now the camera's broken. going to ship it off tomorrow to get it fixed. hopefully we can save the tape--there's sick footage on it. FUCK
so long for filming this winter
EDIT: well, i think i have a battle plan. i think alex raspa is going to let me use his camera a bit while i'm in stuart, and i hope that maybe berstch could let me use his VX while i'm in gainesville. could somebody up there ask berstch for me--spence bros? and hopefully the camera gets fixed soon and comes back before break ends.
here's the stills from yesterday. i just wish i had the tape at least from today, there's about a minute of footage on it. brandon in a line, then john's front shove nosegrind.
damian and i battled the cold for a few hours this afternoon. check the temperature on my phone. damien got 2 good lines, but that's about regular for him. my hands froze into mandible claws around the camera handle. florida, i miss you!
harold, todd jordan, jeff pang, anthony correa, brian brown, quim, etc. enjoy.
i have a full part of most of the footage i filmed of friends up here the past couple of months, i'm hyped on it. will be up in a few days.
tonight we skated for 11 hours, noon til 11 PM. damien got 3 lines and a gnar manual, jake got quick on some ollies, and i got punched in the face. here's some recent stills--damien, billy, jake, and brandon damron.
