Goodbye summer sun, and hello fall fun! Today was spent at the south city YMCA park with Bobby, Jake, John, and our friend and resident staff member Justin. Everyone was looking quite dapper in their helmets, but Jake wasn't feeling it. The session was pretty chill for the most part, until Bobby and Justin ruined it by actually trying. Thanks guys. Nollie flip by Bobby and noseblunt by Justin. See you in the leaf pile.

Check out the new issue of SLAP to see Guy's sick photo of Nate Lacoste doing a rather large backside 180 right here in St. Louis, at the corner of Morgan Ford and Connecticut to be precise. Nice work! Also, if you want to see what Grizz is up to currently, go here to see what's happening on the Alien Workshop trip he's on.

I have some photos in a group show currated by my good friend Justin Visnesky. He's got photos in the show too, as well as some other fine folks. The opening is this Saturday the 13th at Snowflake/Citystock at 3156 Cherokee street. Also, my mom will be bringing treats. Stop by if you can! -Worful

Goeke has curated an art show centered around the artistic activities of local skateboarders. It's called SKATEABLE, and we're pretty excited about it!
Check out the above flyer for all the pertinent details, but the Goekster wants us to mention that on the day of the opening, Thursday the 4th, a "pub-skrawl" will push off at 5:30 pm at the Pin-Up bar in the Loop and will take the metrolink over to Belleville to hit up another bar before winding up at MAPS art gallery.
For the underage types, note that there will be a BBQ at the Belleville skatepark on the 13th. It's sponsored by our good friends at Infinity and a Consolidated STL board will be given away. The gallery will be open all day too so kids can stop by and see the art.
But the most unique thing about the event, and the thing that makes it truly Goekefied is that Ben will be creating 3-5 new spots by the 13th. After all, creating a spot, just as much as skating a spot, is a form of art. Who knows what the objects will be--hell, they might just be some janky wooden pallet creations--but if you've never shredded a Goeke-approved obstacle, you haven't fully lived the STL skate experience.
Goeke promises that the whole event will be "sweet," and we know that he has been working hard, so we have high hopes. Please come out and support.
