Whatever happened to Chaz Pineda also? He was my buddy. He moved to Portland a while back. I'm guessing drugs.

headtowall misspelled "drag". Ben Rayborn has a drag problem.

Yes yes sorry, it started out as a once in awhile thing, but then next thing you know drag brunches lead to too many mimosas. RIP BEN

One time a bunch of my friends went to Bob and Barbara's in Philly for their drag night. Then afterwards I looked over and my friend's face was all pale and he looked in shock. I asked him what was wrong and he said, "I thought it would have something to do with racing cars."

I used to see him around Portland everywhere and we skated a few times. I skated with Mike Davis a lot before he passed and from what I heard Tony was trying to get them both to go to rehab. I feel like heís either completely blowing it at this point or working on himself before trying to get back into the industry light again. Sucks because he was fun as hell to skate with and I havenít even seen him in like 2 years.

This sucks I really love Ben Rayborn's skating. He never struck me as a hardcore drug user, but drugs can take anyone down I suppose. I hope he gets clean and sober. I'd hate to see his talent wasted

Yo, man. This is totally irrelevant to the topic, but you do know that you don't have to attach that dolphin image to every post if you truly want it to be there on every post, right?
This thread makes me feel like I just came across two Juggalos fucking in an alley.

Now, we used to say we put on our tights to put on the world. So I don't think it tarnishes the image at all.

Why do you think that? It's like Brooklyn with more nature, legal weed and all the hippy chicks with daddy's internet money you could ever hope to have. I've only seen/ heard good and positive things about the place.

I feel like you donít know what Portland is really about . I grew up there a skateboarder and started doing drugs, about 70 percent of everyone I know there struggles with addiction. Itís beautiful for about the first five years. Turns out being a hipster isnít cool, so often people turn to addictions beyond alcohol and weed. Weed is legal, so cheap and so accessible it gets old.

I'm sure he has an Instagram or something for you to check in with him. He's probably okay,just pushing his glasses back up towards his face or something.

I saw a few months ago he had been off of Nike for a while and they seem to give him a board every once and a while at Birdhouse, I think he has one trick in the newest Birdhouse video.

such a sick welcome edit. i didn't know who he was at the time either, but a combination of a relatively unknown dude + rudimentary peni + slave being one of the sickest companies at the time. they did good. and then i lost interest when he quit for birdhouse a few months later.
[close]

Absolutely. Birdhouse is so soft. Glad we got a small glimpse of him on Slave though.

Tony Hawk, Clive Dixon, Jaws and Lizzie are soft?  Lol, okay...

Those are the people my mom and little sister picture when they hear about skating.

I live in one and been to the other/know lots of people there. and Portland and Brooklyn are very very different. Portland has an insane wide spread heroin problem. Obviously Brooklyn does too, but you don't see people nodding off at spots and shows here (save for some street punk shows). People go down deep holes in Portland. Brooklyn you are just more likely to blow some rails on an iphone at Midway and drink high life.
