Kamloops, British Colombia opened the World’s First Longboard Park and I had the pleasure of being there thanks to Switchback Longboards and the #SwitchbackAnimals. I swapped runs with Aidan Lynds to cover the filming and he put together the edit.

Switchback Longboards helped me get to the Toronto Board Meeting with Aidan Lynds this past September so we brought out the cameras and put together a little edit capturing all the fun with the #SwitchbackAnimals and the Ontario community.

Portraits from the 2014 Toronto Board Meeting

I have known about the Toronto Board Meeting for years, but always had a reason to be somewhere else. No excuses this year, I packed my bags with Aidan Lynds and we headed out to Toronto.

One of the iconic things in my mind is the black & white photos of Board Meeting over the years, most notably to me are the ones from Jonathan Nuss. Nuss and the Skate Invaders are a large part of my image of the Ontario scene as whole.

I snapped some images for Switchback Longboards while I was there and kept it to Monochrome because it felt right (Album here). Continue reading

Switchback Longboards Caliber II Release

The boys at Switchback Longboards always have a unique sense of humor and are ready to have fun. While they waited on the arrival of the new Caliber Trucks Caliber II’s we played with some ideas for Switchback to make the promotion unique and fitting of Caliber’s polished brand. We decided to go with some classy Canadian Animals mimicking the Caliber Pro photos. Have a look and check Switchbacklongboards.com for the best place in Canada to get Caliber Trucks online!

Second Place at Jake’s Rash Old Man Race!

Despite skating down hills for years now, Freeride’s and lurking the back of the pack seshing runs with the homies is more my style. Add running brand activations at most events and I have rarely entered a “race”. Last year I hit up the Mt. Tabor race on “holiday” and entered myself to actually compete. Tabor is a rad old-school tuck race in Portland, a generally mellow hill, but anything can happen racing. I ended up crashing with OSL in my first heat (Sorry buddy!), but advancing, and then out next round. Fun times for sure.

This past week was the infamous Danger Bay and Jake’s Rash. I was working with Switchback at Danger Bay and not really down for the havoc of the historic crash corner, but the party is rad. I had more time at the mid-week Jake’s Rash (not a family event!) and really enjoy the speedy, sweepy course – time to race.
