fresh street setup


my buddy Giancarlo did that graphic.  coudn't be happier to see a marriage between my favorite artist and skate company.













speaking for myself:  i'm 28 and i can honestly say i skate better now than i ever have... i also skate like 3-4 times a week and have a wonderful skatepark at my disposal 5 minutes from my house.  i like to think that if i didnt, id still go to the nearest smooth parking lot and skate flatground for hours.  i couldn't imagine "quitting" or something gay like that

Hey old farts. I felt like sharing this pic of the best session I had in years: reunion with some heads from my old crew!
We're all over the 40 mark....and some guys I hadn't seen in about 10 years. Super fun. It felt like we were 15 again. I'm the dude far left.

Shot in Paris, Porte de la Muette skatepark. 6 days before the attacks....None of us were directly affected luckily, but this shit hit hard.

Fuck yeah OBF!  I'm getting married next summer and one of the things I'm really looking forward to is having all of my friends from back in the day together for a session for the first time in forever ( your pic got me looking forward to that even more )!  Sending positive thoughts and vibes to you and yours my friend!

I didn't get kicked out of a spot but I had a teacher lady come tell I could "play" behind the school at night but not to wax the ledge because kids are slipping on it. It felt realy weird at my age to have someone talk to me like that. I was just like "alright" and then I left because I felt weird.

feels very weird indeed! i am 36 and most security guards in my area are half my age. it is not very pleasant to be told to "fuck off", especially when this happens in front of randomers or even people i sort of know (sometimes customers of mine!)

I had a week in Copenhagen skating with friends before my wedding in Sweden. We had a blast. One guy came from Australia, another from New York. We skated everyday and the only injury I got was a minor break on my thumb so I was pretty stoked even though my wife wouldn't have been shocked had I turned up on crutches. Another great part of the trip was when we found a discount shoe store selling NOS Osiris D3's so we bought some and tried to skate in them, it wasn't easy but it was hilarious and every spot you turned up at the locals would be stoked to see someone sporting D3's.

After breaking my toe in the summer (a month after turning 40), it is finally letting me try tricks again, after months of the occasional slappy and carve grind....

Haven't been posting cuZ haven't been skating. Literally two sessions since my 2nd son was born in mid April :-((( both were when I had to take my car to tire shop so I sessions the curb and long manny pad in the strip mall parking lot for about 2 hrs each time. That's as good as it gets for me these days unfortunayely. Glad to see all you dudes doing well and continuing to shred. Rad flick OBF!

Just thought I'd share my part in our new shop related video, I'll be 42 this month.
Winter here has been rough, hope it helps the old guys get off the couch.

Your clips are always great 144p ,I'm a big fan of the half cab feebles variations you do on parking blocks.
The rock wallie manual front shuv was outstanding.

Homie from Japan turned 41 and busted 40 blunts to fakie in a row  on mini ramp and kickflipped out on the 41st one.

Fuck yeah 144p! Really liked the wallie to bank fakie. Fuck that, all of it was sick.

As for me, I'm stoked to be skating again. For 2 weeks now. My ankle ended up taking me out for 6 weeks. It's still a little crunchy. But almost back to full strength. Good to be back on board. I'll be 39 in a few days.

Nice pic Frenchie! Having a skate crew that spans decades is the best. I know I'm thankful for mine.

also that 40 blunts video was crazy. that last frame! not even sure I could do 40 rock fakies before my legs give in.........

anyways best wishes to all you guys for the holiday season!
I'm about to head to the Alps with wife and kids for the first time, super excited about that. Not skating until then cause I'm just too scared of hurting myself before I get that snowboarding week in......

At 33 I'm pretty hyped that I skated a handrail last weekend. Just did a boardslide, and only tried it like 5-6 times max before I rolled away, but I'm still sore today, nearly a week later.

Getting older is interesting.
Are you a kook? If you would say this, the answer is “YES”
I quit skating for a time due to piling out

i'd like to fs board and 50-50 this 6 stair i boardslid a long time ago. ideally i'd like to skate a few rails after winter's over, we'll see. i know i can, it's just hard to do it alone and the older i get the less likely whoever i'm hanging out w/ is gonna be spry and intent on doing it w/ me.

Fantastic as usual Dave, inspiration.


Yesterday night I met with Sodajerk and have a little session in an spot right by my house that I didn't know of. Perfect curbs and smooth ground. It just brightened the prospects of my winter and I couldn't thank him enough for that.

Before meeting I wanted to warn him that I am 39 and, as it turned out, he is almost there too. Nice session and great meeting you Sodajerk, thanks - I am coming back today!


Also, I believe that I didn't share this pic. This is me in my favorite ledge in my favorite part of my hometown when I last visited Spain in September.

Always good to share the stoke Cosme. I'll message you when I finish work and if you're still about I'm down for a session, maybe even a pint after. Keep it up old guys.
