In all my years I never made it out the 3rd and Army... I have to say it is for sure one of the top 5 skate spots of all time. Sorry no actual skate footage, but sometimes that's how it goes when you are too busy shredding. I wish I could have skated here more than just one day.

Here is the cure for that which ales our fine pass time. New shapes developed by skateboarders with skateboarding in mind, graphics by an amazing skateboarder on the finest Great Lakes Maple pressed by skateboarders in the South East for the best pop and most durable deck in any skate shop. 100% wood, it's that good that we don't need any fiberglass like a surfer or snowboarder owned company has to insert to make their decks last. USA made premium quality for skateboarders by skateboarders, isn't that the way it should be?

Staying on the skateboard art tip, I bought this T-shirt at a Skate Art Show a few years back in Bolton Hill. Brad Staba, Tony Cox and a couple other skaters had stuff in the show too.I actually think that day was the first time I hung out with my friend Nikki from skate camp... I've never really done anything with this, it just sits in plastic until I move again and re-discover it.

Anyone who has ever skated with Ellis has witnessed this tantrum. For all you kids out there reading this, it's not cool to get mad at a good session, save those outbursts for your team sports.
* the only time I think it's justifiable to throw you board is if your board hurts you.

Really just a bunch of random shots from my birthday bash ramp jam at the Nerve Center. I was really stoked to have some of my all time favorite heads skating the ramp with us that afternoon (sorry about cutting off your head Andy). Video post coming shortly...

This monster was intimidating especially after working all weekend and trying to take a run with kids who have been skating it all day. I was really hoping the life guard would blow the whistle and give me 30-minutes of adult swim. Those kids killed it. I think the first kid was Chaz Oritz, he was doing kickflip front D's in the shallow end. Then there was the little 11 year Dakota who was doing those head high airs out of the deep end all weekend. The last clip is our friend Phil from Precision, the grand master of this event, truly inspirational to see him shredding all weekend with the kids!
