Redstar in Detroit

Near the end of the summer I trekked off to Detroit with the Redstar guys for a solid three days of skating. If you haven't got yourself a copy of the new issue then head over to the Concrete site and check out our article in full by clicking here. Enjoy!

What do you want to be when you grow up?

When I'm 35 with a wife and a child, I want to be able to shred just as hard and just as often as my buddy.

Next time some dude gives you that age old excuse, "Well I had to quit because I got a girlfriend/job." you can call them out for half-stepping because Mr. Jamie Jeffery does it all and then some as seen below in his new video part.


Bluntslide to fakie.

Feeble jump-over.

Thanks for the inspiration dawg!

Style and Grace

Although sequences are neither stylish or graceful, the subject in this case, is.

Joel, switch flip manual.

Slappy noseslides!

Have you seen the Labour of Love trailer yet? Better get a copy...

Annual Heartbreak

Well, it snowed today and some of it managed to stick around which means the annual heartbreak is here to stay. Anyways, here's some goodies that I logged over the happier times(also known as summer).

Will Marshall, switch inward heelflip.

Paul Machnau, wallride.

Jesse Brown, hardflip.

Josh Clark, fakie ollie.

J-S Lapierre, noseblunt.

Mikey Plantus, frontside flip.

Kevin Skutnik, ollie into the bank.

Those should keep you warm until you leave your house next.

"What's been done here?"

If you're skating around the Kitchener-Waterloo area and want the typical rundown of each spot and what's been done, Tyler's name pops up quite a bit. Him and I stayed pretty busy over the spring and summer as seen in his interview in the latest Kingshit. Here are the photos from said interview and even the raw footage to go along with it.

Switch backside 180.

Nollie front board.

Switch frontside 180.

And check out that proof right here!

How's that for 4 month blog hiatus?

Some good homies from Kitchener and Detroit got together and are collaborating on a skate and health food blog...it's tight! Check it out for quality skating and food ideas.

Isaac Watamaniuk, crook.

If there's one thing I can stand by, it's knowing that the quality(content and actual paper stock) of this magazine is going to be amazing. Don't hesitate, check out the donation link and Allen's website and blog below.

Something like a heatwave...

As of late, southern Ontario has been experiencing a brutal heat wave keeping some of us indoors until the sun goes down late in the day. The sun has been on a ruthless mission forcing skateboarders into the deep end of pools during the day only to let us come out for a few hours at night for some shredding.

A quick weekend trip to Cadillac, Michigan.

Paul Machnau was in Kitchener for a week and
a bit and laid down some tricks. Here he is
checking one out.

An antique store in Cadillac. Can't make this
stuff up.

Mikey, front board in Toledo, Ohio.

Things have been a little slow over here with content. Myself and a few other media guys are working on a new side project showcasing the talent and happenings that go on in the 519 area code. Take a look for video and photo content from the past and present.


Morgan Smith, switch backside flip for fun.

A weekend in the Armpit

Somehow the stars aligned properly and I managed to get a Friday to Sunday streak off while the weather cooperated at the same time. I thought of no better place to take advantage of such an event than a good ol' city called Windsor. I headed down late Thursday night and immediately the next morning some insane shredding ensued until sundown on Sunday. These type of weekends are few and far between but damn, when they happen, you know it's good.

These cats!

Crossed into Detroit for the day and met up
with none other than Mr. Bohl! He showed us
this wicked authentic Mexican joint too.

Ending a day in Detroit with some beans, rice
and flautas. Amazing!

Back to spot checking. Hill checking out a death

More spots...

Rigged something up...look at the smile on this
guy's face.

Another spot check...

If you've ever been to the Plantus' residence
you'll know this face as soon as you start driving

Mikey ain't bad at art either!

Gotta love it!

Patching Things Up

With mother nature becoming less and less of the harsh mistress she used to be a few familiar faces and myself have been dodging work hours to get out and do some skating. Nothing overly exciting here but have a look below for some fun.

I really need to watch what I say. A week or so
before I shot this I was talking an incredible
amount of shit on grass/dirt gaps. Ah well...
Scott, frontside heelflip.

Headed to Guelph to meet up with Byron and
Colin. This was the first spot of the day.

Spot checking....

Sam snacking out. Brought two cans of
spaghetti and a can opener to get things crackin'.

Who doesn't like a fresh strip of bondo?

Tyler waxing his wheel wells.

...and that is how you absorb impact my friends.
This is an actual frame from the land too.

Swing....and a miss.

While most skaters are itching to get back out into the streets, I, myself have been feeling a little sluggish trying to get back into the swing of things. Have no fear, as soon as mother nature stops throwing some heavy curve (snow)balls at us every other week this blog should fill up with a bit more photo content. In the meantime, indulge below, my friends.

Mitch, frontside flip. One of those, "But dude,
you were so close!" type of situations.

Drew, getting urban downtown Toronto with
a front crook to fakie.

Isaac, backside noseblunt at a very rad DIY spot
in Toronto. The utmost respect goes out to
whoever built this - sometimes skateboarders
amaze me.

Scott and I managed to get out one night while
the streets were temporarily skatable. Ollie
the hydrant to 5050 the curb.

Beaster, backside noseblunt. This little buddy's
interview just came out in Kingshit. Bow Digga
showed me his footage in Barcelona last winter
and my basic reaction was, "I need to shoot with
this dude." That being said, I'm stoked to have
gone out shooting with you bud! Good work.

Home Land

First off, all apologies to everyone that may have been expecting constant updates from the road while the gang and I were in Florida. Believe me, I had every intention of doing so but eventually getting back to the hotel at 10pm and updating your blog becomes a little low on the priority list. Things like food, beer and sleep usually take over. That being the case, I'm cramming this post full of photo goodies and stories from the road. Enjoy!

Jamie got a little broke off at this spot...

Then Hugo barged Jamie's session.
"Oh maaaan I want an epic hero shot too!"

These jerks barged our session at the brick
quarter pipes. Look close!

Bow Digga, feeble stall.

Checkerboard spot in Atlanta.

Why is this here? Epic spots.

Hilliard, light test.

Jamie, kinky 5050 on a filmer board
downtown Miami.

Jamie, epic face.

Mikey, more epic spots.

Dan Ray, 5050.

Hugo, wallie over....

but not before he threw some gang signs.

Mitch "That's Gang Related" Pryma, 5050
past the curb.

A sad, sad man named Sonny
that we met at the spot. Hopefully
he's still alive right now.

Hugo on the hunt for some crocs while we
stopped in 'gator country.

Some cool trees by a spot we were skating.

Spring break? More like SPRING FRANK!
Yes that is Mitch Pryma.

Downtown Miami at night.

A young gunner(seriously) having some fun
on my board.

I shot this timelapse on our drive from
Windsor to Florida beginning with frigid snow
and ending up in the beautiful sunny weather.
