Go Skate Day 2012….on the Red Bull Bus!!

I have actually had to miss the last few Go Skateboarding Days because of this or that reasons, but I was beyond stoked to not miss out on the festivities this year.  Liberty and JSLV hooked it up and got a red bull bus to cart 30 or more of us out to the Venice Skatepark for the Go Skate Day event there.  I decided I wanted to pound a bunch of red bulls and see what happened, bad call.  Here’s some of the photos that I was able to snap whilst my heart was going a million miles a minute.

Saturday June 9th the Girl and Chocolate teams came out to Brea skatepark and put on a demo to support (RED), an organization dedicated to spreading AIDS awareness and fighting to deliver an AIDS free generation.  Liberty Boardshop hosted the event and threw another of their famous BBQ’s.  Here’s a few pics I snapped while enjoying the festivities.

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!!

off the grid/text yourself goodness

Although these links have already been up for a minute, I still had to do a shout out for the homies.  The berrics is definitely killing it with its last off the grid article, featuring our boys James Craig and Danny Garcia; not to mention being filmed by Colin Kennedy.  Makes me think of the old days skating with this crew, always a good time.  Next throw in a text yourself featuring Ronnie Creager and that’s just some damn good entertainment.  Don’t worry, I’ll stop feeding off other peoples subject matter and get some of my own in due time.

Liberty postcard

I shot this photo of Ben a while back.  First off most people don’t know how gnarly Ben is: that wall is full on brick, the black top before is definitely not smooth, add in the uneven crack riddled ground and the resulting chest high frontside wallride is downright rugged.  I sent the pic over to Liberty and they turned it into one of their postcards, always psyched to contribute to the fam.  Thanks to Jeremy and Boomer over at Liberty and of course Mr. Ben Paulsrud for letting me document his wizardry.
