Wilfredo Gomez

I was watching a couple episodes of HBO’s “How to Make It In America” and was psyched to see Javier Nunez doing so well.  While watching his On Demand clip “Meet Wilfredo Gomez” I even noticed a trick I shot a while back, it was actually the first time I’ve shot with him.  There were people everywhere and I remember Joe Krolick had a huge crane set up to get a really gnarly angle, it was a battle to find a good spot to shoot but things worked out and I got a few good shots that day.  Anyway here’s the sequence, enjoy!

Skate for Sirmon at the Vans park

This past Saturday was the Skate for Sirmon Benefit held at the Vans park at the Block of Orange Mall.  It was held to raise funds to help a good friend and fellow skater John Sirmon who was diagnosed with colon cancer.  For those of you who don’t know Sirmon, go to www.savesirmon.com to get the full story.  The event had raffles, tons of prizes, and lots of friends and skaters who showed up to support.  It was great hanging out with Big John and to see that he still has that infectious smile and positive energy around him.  We’re all praying for you John and thanks to all who came and supported!!

Agenda Tradeshow

I stopped by the Agenda Trade show in Long Beach last Friday.  Although I was only there for a brief period to support friends’ companies, I have to say that it was one of the better conventions I’ve been to.  Much smaller than ASR, it had a smoother and more vibrant demeanor than your typical convention.  Here’s a few random pics I rattled off while enjoying the hustle and bustle of the skate industry.
