LOCAL KNUCKLE



This is Hedi's 48 Knuckle which he bought for a ridiculously low price over a decade ago. The bike was in a box and when he assembled the parts it basically ran like a dream. He can be seen riding the hell out of the bike pretty much every non-rainy day in the Basque country. Some people are just born lucky.

CADILLAC



I keep seeing this 55 Cadillac in the Hossegor area and never got the chance to talk to the owner. It's got some miles on it and gets used in any weather conditions. Love the way it looks.

SALTON SEA

A Grant Brittain shot of the spot.


Us, same spot.



Across the street


I dug up some pictures of what must have been my most memorable skate session ever. Hessu and I were visiting ASR in San Diego and decide to drive to Salton Sea cause we heard of this pool, but had no idea where it was. Needless to say our Neverlost didn't help either. Al we knew was that the pool was on the North shore and our friend Brecht had sent us a google earth shot of the place. We started driving for hours in the baking sun, stopped at some casino in the middle of nowhere, had a burger, won some coins at the slot machine, drove more, got lost, drove more... We eventually found it thanks to what I call our skater's nose. You know, when you feel the spot is in the close. Anyway, it was so hot and there was absolutely no shade but we got to skate by ourselves and the pool was clean. No brooms needed. Then after a while, we realized there was another pool across the street. A square one with so much vert and a tiny trannie. I can honestly saywe sucked ! But had so much fun carving both pools.
We left and drove straight to LAX cause Hessu had to catch a flight that night. I drove back down to Laguna Beach. We must have spent 9 hours in the car (if not more) but it was well worth it. Now the pool is gone.

BLOODY NOSE


This great looking chopper is for sale HERE

SOUL BIKE


The Soul Bike, a Jeff McCann spraycan paintjob in '68.
What a sick looking little chopper ! Almost a shame he got rid of this "joke" paint job to replace it by a metal flake one.
Not sure what tank he put on there. Looks like a sportster one. Real good !

THAT WOODEN TOY


I feel bad for people who don't skateboard !
Hessu, Christian and myself have been taking skate-lunch breaks at our local skatepark lately and I keep noticing that skateboarding with my friends makes me smile. Always !!!
I came to realize that besides spending time with my wife and kids, there is nothing that makes me smile like being on my board. It's amazing that whatever the age, you still learn ( or re-learn ) tricks.
SKATEBOARDING RULES !
