Coffin'd


The above is from the best 411 ever and was inspired by Carl Shipman and Chrome Ball. I was hoping to see the flick from Big Brother of that 360 flip fakie, but, alas...The skating in the clip has held up incredibly well, though considering the line up, that's no huge surprise. Moses Itkonen ripped exceptionally, and I was motivated to learn 360 flips on steep banks, and even make some. The jerseys are wild, but stranger things have happened. Who bought that PJ's CD?

Went snowboarding this past weekend and I'm considerably less good than I always think I am. Busted up my back and am on a Tiger Balm/Aleve regiment, hoping to skate soon, but I did get a clip.

On a completely different note, this story about Scientology from the New Yorker by Lawrence Wright is an absolute must read. Well done.

In one day Boil The Ocean will be put on blog-death-watch for not updating in a month, and stands to lose its place on my bookmark toolbar. Word is out. You'd think the Kalis Epicly Later'd episodes would have awoken his primal blogging urges.

Similarly, The Hesh has been updated seven times this year, and thus, is blowing it. Their only contribution to Western Civilization thus far this year was posting this rad video about Minnesota born Julian Mejia. Take that slackers!

The Nike dude had jerseys on their Euro summer tour just last year. It's definitely weird though.

first time commenter here and just sub'd your blog.

when you mention jerseys it brings up images of old BA footage. He was a harbinger of jerseys and made it look damn good. works on bigger guys with wide shoulders or something.

shiiiiiiiiit, our jerseys were 1-of-a-kind dopeness individually tailored to meet the grueling individual demands of each elite team rider

I think that dudes wearing jerseys in a "team" effort is sorta weird, but lord knows I'll skate in Johnny Vang's old KG jersey. Kid's sized of course.

That flick of Shipman's 360 flip is way too good, Chops. Perfect blue Lynx's to boot. Short of D Way or Colin, nobody hangs that high over that trick.
