Tengu: God of Mischief - Roof Skating

it's cold.  i've got a sinus infection and am hiding from the snow.

live skateboard mag out of france did a short interview with me recently.  you can read it here: Meeting Colin Read.  there are some nice photos of roofs and such by allen and carlos, check it out.  i weigh in on the vx vs. hd issue, talk about tengu, and various other ramblings.

to go along with that, we released the roof skating introduction online.  one SLAP posted likened it to "a deodorant ad with parkour dudes trying to skate."  maybe now i can get some ad work with old spice?


made this for the claw love.  kennedy rules.

i've been in florida for an unexpectedly long time.  i had intended to just come down for a short holiday trip, but the blizzards in new york city pushed back my return.  i hurt my foot pretty badly on a primo on the first day of the trip, but i've been trying to skate and film as much as i can with brandon damron and the rest of the 561 crew.  john clayton's unfortunately out do to a broken pelvis--i think i'm the only other person i know who's done that to himself too.  i made it to gainesville for 2 days to see all the boys and have an OG mandible claw reunion.  gentlemen.

i'll be back in NY later this week, bringing with me a full blog update.  until then, here's connor on the come-up on the skateboard mag site.

sequence by darnell scott.  fun fact--darnell didn't have his flashes, so i lit it up with my camera light, 90's style.  http://theskateboardmag.com/2014/01/6-oclock-shots-connor-kammerer-stump-ollie-kickflip/#.UtWgdoXTMs0
