Continually Updated Personal Footage and Photos

Used to do those shuvs out of BS nose grinds quite a bit.
Felt good.

Doesn’t sound as gangster.

35:00. Here’s what made me want to learn them back in the day. Enrique did one in Trilogy and Tim O’Connor did one in Yellow too. Never really seen this one that much otherwise.

Pretty cool section! Starts at 32:30. Contest footage certainly isn’t the nicest representation of what skateboarding can be but these contest sections in 411 were usually rad. You don’t get to see Mike V and Sanch in the same section very often, do you? Ah, nostalgia and rose-tinted glasses…
It’s all about the mini Pier 7 clip at 32:00 anyway.

A Bern U-turn? :fire::fire::fire:

The Fondue Twister.

Combo crazy.

I find most grind/slides to wheelies tasteless or even silly but ollieing onto the platform, from the tailslide, into a nosewheelie was a satisfying challenge! I love keeping on learning new shit all the time, even if it’s moves I’ll never try again.

A little of my after work DIY set up in Newport. Would be great to have this on a normal day and session it but glad to Even have this in these mad times.

This place looks great, very dystopian but this is what we’re going through.

The weather has been crazy here lately, it’s been snowing and raining non-stop for weeks I think. I’m lucky enough to have keys of the local indoor park and can skate there on my own when it’s closed (it’s only open for kids at the moment). I love doing that but there’s something weird about being in this big, cold, dusty, silent space on my own. I go there and try hard to not think about falling and hitting my head and just drink Earl Grey and do mellow shit. Can’t complain, even if I’m really looking forward to being able to skate outdoors, no matter how cold it is.
Learnt a new manual yesterday. Stoked.

That’s sick. Time , space , your own thoughts and your music as loud as you like .

Had the same during first lockdown, but you can’t play music loud because you’re not supposed to be there.

I never put on music when I’m there for some reason.

I don’t want those sessions to be too Groundhog Dayesque so I usually warm up in 5 or 10 minutes then work on a new trick, film it, watch my footage smoking a cig drinking Earl Grey then go back home, which is very Groundhog Dayesque now that I think about it.

Sat isolating, just had a test and waiting to see if I’ve been idiotic enough to some how catch Covid for a second time. Got nothing else to do so edited together some recent clips to make a “part.” I’m well aware of how much of a wanker the seriousness of the song makes me look. Fuck it.

No lines coz it’s not fair to put my friends through that misery (and my push is stinking).

Another Covid-friendly wheelie. I love wheelies so much.

Got a like and a comment from Brian Lotti! Feeling ridiculous for being stoked on that but hey… Whatever. Haha.
