Hunter woke me up super early on a cold day to take pictures of Dave and him surfing. I made the best of it and had a little fun with it. It's more of a story rather than just action shots.
Gabe and I took a day trip out to Raleigh to get some clips to finish my video part for Another Skate Shop and we almost got rained out. Luckily my board survived the puddles and we met up with Nick and rolled around to a few fun spots. Ending the day with a perfect mini ramp sesh is the way it should always be done.
Maybe I am a bad blogger or bad at "marketing myself", as they say. I can't say that anyone has missed me though, so maybe it doesn't matter that I post a few photos several months later. Here is a fun night skating the Crater then going to Shr3dCrust and MonkeyKnifeFight at the Whiskey.
My friends are in a band called Nite Bike. I like them. Not just because they are my friends. You can like them too. The photos might be repetitive, but it's mostly for them to pick through, so please don't be all that bothered by it.
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.
One of the best wall-riders in the biz, photos like these will never get old.

Nic and I went to Boone to stay for a few days. We ended up extending our stay for three extra days and I took some pictures.
It seems I have been removed from my own blog for a few weeks now, but I've been shooting a lot. These photos are from a night of amazing shows in Downtown Wilmington. First up is Virgin Lung at the Soapbox. Then we hopped over to Hell's Kitchen for the Danger Ross memorial show. I'm not sure why I thought one photo would be better in color but that's how it is. Deal with it.
Skate contests are always intense. Everybody goes their hardest but everyone has a blast. There's always an after party. Backdoor Skate Shop opened their doors for a bunch of dudes. Here's some photos from it. Video edit 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.
A drive down River Road can take you to places only rarely touched by humans and I hate landscape photography.
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.
