Thanks Chopper Boy

Here's a photo me and Joe just barely missed getting. This one is a no lander.

So this rail is perfect, but its in a pretty sketchy side of Newark. The hood usually treats skaters well so we didn't think much, I just thought we weren't going to get booted. I scoped this thing at least 3 times before I was able to get Joe and Wes in Newark at the same time. So we get here finally and I start rolling up and doin bullshit attempts. As I'm trying there is a crowd across the road, some ridiculously dressed dude, and a mom and her kid all watching generally being stoked on me trying it. Everyone except this one guy who wasn't hyped at all. He was talking to Wes and Joe apparently saying some sketchy shit as I was trying it. So it gets the point where he just shuts it down, tells me I cant try it anymore before I get physically hurt..."and not from your skateboard." So basically I was fucked, he waited around a little and walked away slowly and around the corner. I was super pissed and a guy across the street noticed and came over. He was drinking white wine with ice out of a pint container around 4pm, dude was gnarly looking. He said his name was Chopper Boy. He looked me right in the eyes and said "For real though, It aint worth gettin hurt for Youtube." I tried explaining it more saying how badly I wanted to keep trying. He said something like "If you got it than I say you do it" or something. Basically he gave me the balls to keep trying it while there's a guy with a gun I'm convinced around the corner. So me and Wes bum rush this thing and I try it like 6 times under a minute. Joe had the car running ready to dip soon as we got it. I wound up doing it but we couldn't re setup the photo gear, and not have a get away driver so we only filmed it. For sake of story, this photo does fine.

Thanks Chopper Boy. In fact I think that's him in the way right hand side of the frame chillin' on the stoop holding his wine.

Today went perfect. Perfect temperature, and didnt get kicked out of any spots. Taking off work was the best idea I've ever had.

Started at my all time fav spot. School 11. Willy Akers, Joe Took, and Brian Ueyda happened to be there when showed up which was awesome. Super cool dudes.(Shitty picture because i took it as we left)

Started working on a project with Wes and Boullianne recently and its going pretty good. Should be out soon

The best ledges

Dead humming bird.

This plant went against all odds

awkward, but pretty cool.

Days like today are rare during the school year.

All over the place

The most slept on spot

Bj wishard brings a whole new meaning to Dick baggin'

the most terrible rad looking spot ever

Now this is a good spot


Newark is about cheap food, not skate spots:

Wes, making sure this thing stays straight or something.

Lort Fee

This spot is sick

We filmed some stuff

Possibly the best spot today. I should have spent more time on it.

No one did shit here, we skated flat instead.

Ditch Baggin

Started a little slow today, the crew was not lookin good.

we had to wait around a bit so we played skate and fucked with these things...

Then we made the trip to this place. Dont ask me where this is

dont fall.

We skated till our legs have had it and the sun was setting

Good day!
