San Ramon/Concord Homies in LA

I had a group of little skater dudes show up to my pad last week. Here's Daniel Dubois and his homies Connor Duhaime and Zach Dalton handling business.

Brian Sawyer

This was the craziest thing I have ever seen. Brian didn't even warm up with a boardslide or feeble. This man went straight for the throat and landed this historic trick first try like a BOSS. No bullshit with this guy. Someone hook this dude up!!!

Pasadena Sesh With Anthony Amedori aka Go-Gurt

Anthony's a beast. The police were on the way, workers were rushing him, and a group of middle school kids were yelling while he was trying this one. After he landed it, we packed it up, hopped in the car, and avoided the pigs by seconds. Great success!

I've always seen this thing in videos thinking it looked really fun to skate.... In reality, this thing is super sketchy with huge cracks and a ton of traffic. Anything you ride away from on here is definitely earned.


Anthony landed this a while back and tried to get it again for the seq. He almost landed it 4th try (put his wheel down for a sec), but ended up battling this for about two hours. Didn't get it, but we'll be back.

A Sesh with the Homies in Sacramento

I was up in the Bay Area last week for a bit. Only got a chance to go on one trip, but it was a good one. Massimo Legittimo showed Cameron, Matty, Taylor, and I around all his sweet Sacramento spots and introduced us to his homies; Austin Padilla, Richard Hughs, and Waits Dylan. They rip. Here's a few flicks.

Austin Padilla, bs flip

Richard Hughs, fs 180 hard way

Taylor Kennedy, noseblunt

Awesome spots for powerslides.

Matty Hunt, Tail Pusher

The man with all the spots, Awesomo Legittimo

January 2011

For the last three weeks I've been fortunate enough to skate almost everyday. I guess that's a winter in California for ya. Here are a few flicks from two weeks in the Bay Area and one week in LA with the homies. I'm sore as hell and I couldn't have asked for a better vacation.

...yeah, yeah a bit of narcissism, but I haven't filmed in almost two years and it felt really healthy to try and get buck again. Here's a few tricks shot by Christopher Young that will be in a Metro Whoa of the Week.
