Me and a few of my main bros drove up to Raleigh for a day trip. Nobody checked the weather. It was all fine for a few hours until mother nature decided to release a beast of a thunderstorm. We headed for cover in an empty parking garage. Everyone got at least one nosegrind photo. Special thanks to Jed, James, and Dan for showing us a good session. Also all the other homies that showed up and made the session extra large.

The Thrashville contest was radical. I got so wrapped up in the epicness that I didn't shoot very many good (IMO) photos. I shot some video, so I might make a lil edit here in a bit.
A crew of Another Skate Shop riders and I took a last minute trip to Camp Woodward to film an edit for the DLXSF Shop of Ages contest. I managed to make Wells Shaw do these tricks a few times so I could snap a few photos. Tuck knee over the dudes and an ollie into the snake run. A big thanks to Dan at Another, DLXSF, Ryan Rullman, and the Woodward staff for an epic weekend. Expect a video soon.
Always a good excuse to stay in the parking garage and skate what you can find.
They are very much fun indeed. Snapped a photo of Will Smith somehow floating an ollie on this thing. Video edit of this session of heavy hitters coming one day soon.
We've been out in the streets filming. Wells Shaw offered to pop a massive crooked grind over Zach one more time for a photo. Unreal.
Wilmington has blessed us with amazing 70 degree weather these past few days and the skating has never been better. Even in the middle of the week we have had little trouble finding stuff to shred. Alec Chambers and Trent Reed shredded the entirety of this run down old shipping dock. Even more tricks were done but I was busy filming.
Went out skating with Timmy Jarman. Timmy is finishing up a part for the Vertical Urge video "The Fun Has Begun" and always has a big bag of spots no one really skates. Lucky for me, he snapped a photo of my ollie over this hydrant. Then we went to shoot a photo of a classic Timmy move. Sometimes simplicity is the best option.
Gabe and his bowl held a birthday party for Gary. Gary and I have the same birthday, but he is turning 21, which is way cooler than 23.
A good day of skating should always end with a bust-free night-time cruise sesh with the homies.
Please excuse the darkness. This was fun to film and edit, as is most of the stuff I try to present to the world. I am going to try to put out as much throwaway stuff as I can for the upcoming shop video. Ledge sessions featuring: Trent Reed, Jonathan Finucan, Andrew Miller, Matt Miller, Griffin Faulkner, Alec Chambers, and Will Smith. Enjoy!
I swear Timmy Jarman did this crailblock stall at least 10 times for this photo. ANOTHER edit to look forward to in the morning.
I am back home in North Carolina and I am slacking in the photo department. Big projects are in progress. Weston Sparks video part dropping very very soon. I have also started filming for an Another Skate Shop video, dropping sometime. Here is proof that Jon Finucan has been working hard for the past two days.
