Left Coast

Back on the West coast again! This time staying at Justin Cefai's place in California. Ah yeah, the weather out here is fucking beautiful(as are the girls) and the skating couldn't be better. I made about one, maybe two updates while I was in Michigan so below are some photos from when I was shredding it up in the Mitten...Cali photos come later. Double pits to chesty, bro!

Not too sure what makes a person
actually want to skate a spot like this.
Regardless, Adam got down with a
switch bigspin.

Justin, back 180 fakie manual revert.

Chris, gap to noseblunt with ease.

Alex, fakie flipper.

Ryan , front board 270 out to dust sweeper.

Fellow photographer
Justin Broadway got down with
this back tail.

Cali photos...soon!

A Change in Pace

Well the day came last Thursday that I had to depart from hot and sunny Arizona. It was a fucking blast, no doubt about it! All those dudes put up with me for a good while even when their apartment was packed. Here I am now leaching off somebody's wi-fi single in good old Michigan where the pace is a bit slower but definitely welcome. I present to you some of the final photos of Arizona and the beginning ones of Michigan. Enjoy!

James, frontside 5-0 to fakie on the steep
Chase Bank banks.

Kevin, 5-0 180 into the front

Duke, warm up front tail to fakes.

blunt to fakie.

Chris, ollie in pitch black and blinding flashes.

Keep checking back for updates from good ol' MI.

It was on July the 4th that Mr. Austerberry had to work until 2:30am so we decided to go skate beforehand, wait up afterwards and go skate with him when he got off work. We headed on out for our mission to the university(ASU) and cruised around. Keep in mind we began our cruise mission at 4:30am. We kept it pretty local in the spots we skated, only hitting up some things a few streets over from each other but it was fun nonetheless. With a dilirious Jim in tow, we all packed it in and were home in bed by 7am.

The evening prior to our morning. Kevin, a
big back 180.

Marty battled with tricks.

Mountains at 4:30 in the A.M.

Duke, ollie through.

Hanging out in an alleyway before most people
get up. No big.

Bill, nosegrind.

Gotta love skateboarding! Arizona
is a blast.

It's fucking hot down here! Temperatures breach the 40 degrees Celsius mark mid day and don't go down past 38 at night. It's fun nonetheless and I've gotten used to it pretty quick. It's a total skate house where I'm staying though which is rad. For the amount of dudes here we're actually pretty productive and get a lot of stuff done. Peep the flicks belowwwww!

Not a serious shot but one for the homies.
Mike and Jim getting down.

A ditch! Duke is going to win the X Games one

Kevin, ollie to death ditch bomb.

Mike, front smith.


Recently Mike has had a thing for rails
against walls.
