it's last day of the trip. at one point or the other, i've gotten to skate and film with all the homies: ben gore, brian downey, evan kinori, john lindsay, and IAN ROSENBERG (!!!). ken, a new japanese crewman, and mike lem, who today started his to skated for the first time after a year of injury. my camera has been hit maybe 15 times over the last 5 days; one point, a hit fucked something internal up, making the colors all funny, and then another hit fixed it completely. the wiggly photo at night down there is from the fixing hit. the still of the broken ground is from the landing of a gap; each time brian landed, the ground would explode.
