WALLRIDE MAYHEM


If you are around Frankfurt - Germany on 11th and 12th of July, make sure to swing by the Bright trade show. We are going to have a wallride skateboard contest. Some old school vibes will be in the air for sure !
And the show is right next to Hell's Angels HQ, intresting...

GOOD MUSIC


If you wanna listen to some good rawk'n rawl, check out this label.
I highly recommend it !

SALTON SEA


About 3 years ago my friend Hessu and I were in San Diego and decided to go skate this pool in Salton Sea. We didn' t have any directions and only saw one picture of it from a friend of ours but thought "what the heck, let's go !". We drove for hours not knowing where the hell we were going to. The GPS didn't give any directions either so we kept going to finally get there and find this beauty (and another square one across the street)! We were prepared to clean it, drain it, whatever... But it was clean and dry. Only problem was the heat and smell of dead rotting fish.
Nice pool, hope we can go back there some time.

BADWILL AMBASSADORS


Antiseen is the baddest band I have ever seen. No doubt about it !
To this day it is the best show I witnessed. These guys make sure you get what you paid for.
This is Jeff Clayton at his best at Lintfabriek (RIP) in Belgium a while back.

70 SKYLARK CUSTOM COUPE



While checking some old pictures today, I came across these ones and they made a tear roll of my eyes !
Damn I still miss that car ! It looked like a piece of shit but it ran great. Every winter I left it in a moldy garage for 5 months and when I came back for spring it started almost 1st try each time.
I guess I'll have to get another ride one day...

CRO MAGNON


I've always been into the Cro Mags, but what I read in this book just blew me away!
After reading this the angry, fast and violent sound of NYHC make even more sense.
Best read in a long time and I recommend it to anyone !!!
