I was going to use a shot like this for the intro to my skate video before I came up with the whole falling out of a tree thing. I decided to tweak the composition a bit and use it as just a photo instead. Check out a bit of a background on Robert Arneson, the creator of these strange sculptures.

Home Made Cookins

Some roasted tomato garlic basil soup I made awhile back, with grilled bell peppers and some fancy fancy parmesan. I harvest all the vegetables from the garden, roasted and grilled them, and then just puréed them all in a blender. Man, this stuff was tasty. Simple food porn anyone? I think so.

An Eye For the Creative

I always keep an eye out for little bits of street art. They show up in the best places. Wuuuurms.


Lovely little critters.


yes, yes rocks. Where are they from?

I wish I had my shoes for this. After my road trip to areas of high elevation, I was constantly thinking of where I could climb and always looking for jugs, crimps, and knee-bars. I haven't climbed for, what now? 3 weeks? ridiculous.

Introducing: The Bombsquad Saltflat Throwback

And here is the newest addition to the quiver. I'm very proud to introduce the limited run Bombsquad Saltflat Throwback (i.e. wooden). I've been considering a top mount speed board for a long time now and finally decided to pull the trigger when I saw this one. I'm extremely glad that I did.
The board made of 9 plies of maple, is 37" long and 10.25" at its widest point (right about where your front foot would sit in a tuck). The width tapers down to about 9.5" right before the rear wheel cutouts. The double wheel wells are really well placed and look like they were made with a lot of thought and care. And just LOOK at that graphic. Now that is what I call rad.
Front concave shot is nice and not super aggressive which makes it really comfortable. The rear has a mellow W concave that is perfectly place to make your back foot stick where it should.
Gripped with 36 Gator where it counts and Mob elsewhere. I had so many extra left over Orangatang sticker that I finally decided to use one. Remember kids: Get rad, stay rad, go fast, and keep skating.

Skulls and the Past Life

Slowly, I build my natural history museum from where ever I can. It is not much so far, but it is growing. People sometimes think I'm strange. I just say I'm an aspiring wildlife biologist.

Grasshopper Get me Giddy

After two weeks in the wilderness, I am back! and my god it was AMAZING. I hope I can one day live on a Big Sur reserve. It was honestly one of the most beautiful places I have ever experienced.

On a photo note, I clicked my shutter over 1200 times in the past two weeks, so I have a bit of post processing to do. This means there might be a bit of backlogging before you see any stuff from my trip...I guess you'll just have to wait. Anyways, here are some photos I haven't posted yet. I have a lot of stuff to catch up on.

Grasshoppers are rad in all shapes and sizes.
