UBC Skatepark Spring Session


Played skateboards with Mischa Chandler, Aidan Lynds┬áand Mike Slota at the UBC Skatepark a few weeks back. Snapped some pics with a Canon T3i, 10-22 lens, Canon speedlite and an LED spot. These usually just hit insta so I thought I’d post some here for a change.

All The Pinche Way Ep. 2

I still don’t know where Dan and Aaron got a chainsaw, but we were having fun at Black Flag Skate and Climbing shop all the same.┬áContinuing from Guadalajara to Mexico City this time, we made a quick visit to Leon on the way.

What the video doesn’t show is that Claudio left us with La Migra (the Van) to go to Mexico City on our own. He was busy and needed to meet us there. Who sends 8 Pinche Gringo’s on the road by themselves? Luckily we had Dan Favela to take care of us (and yet, he has the chainsaw?).

Big thanks to Claudio Uribe, Onboard Distribution, Vicious Grip, Rayne Longboards and all the homies in Mexico who helped make this awesome!

PS. I brought home tons of footage and I gotta keep giving credit to Aidan Lynds for plowing through it all to make these edits.

City of North Vancouver Award

I won an award from the City of North Vancouver!

I feel pretty honoured and appreciated to be recognized for a Civic Youth Award. I have only been working with CityFest for a few years now, but have been doing youth work since I was one. Never won an award for it before. Hell, getting minimum wage at a summer camp would have been nice, no award necessary ­čÖé

Thanks to Julianna Buitenhuis at the City of North Van, Dave Sattler our fearless CityFest leader and Mark Koop for having a coffee with me in 2011 and inviting us longboarders to join his skate event.

Bill Good Show Interview – Longboarders vs. Cops

Got another call to be on the Bill Good Show.

Link to the show.

As I mentioned in my previous post, my uncle listen to CKNW and I have been familiar with Bill Good for a good portion of my life. I’m stoked to be invited on again. I guess that means I’m either an easy target, on point or the only one returning their calls… as long as it’s not because I have a face for Radio!
