So Bobby came through (thanks Bob!) and got me a copy of this video and I just watched it, wowy WOW! So yeah, just a reminder that this video exists and that you should buy it. I'm almost positive (unless you were hoping for a Muska part) you'll like it. -Worful

The other day it was fairly cold when I met up with some guys at Shepard. Shepard's not the most fun spot due to it's high level of difficulty, but it was fun to see Chris battle and eventually conquer a very sick NBD there. Yeah Chris! Later Drew and Randy skated the bump to fence nearby which was also fun to watch. Our toes were about to fall off due to frostbite however, so Randy and Drew constructed a fire for everyone. How kind of them, how illegal of them. Also Drew borrowed Pratte's new camera and really got in the zone. Meanwhile it was much warmer the following day when I had the pleasure of watching Frenzel and DJ Crucial skate, among others. Frenzel was skating like a madman and DJ Crucial always has the sickest old school boards (AND shoes apparently). -Worful

Speaking of the old Webster park, I wish I had taken more photos back then. But I'm glad I get to take some of the park's new ripping inhabitants, like Chris. He was nice enough to let me test my fisheye on him last night (I'm still getting the hang of that thing). Thanks Chris! Sorry it was so cold. -Worful

Years ago before the prefabulousness of the Webster park there was just a bunch of homemade obstacles that people brought up and skated. It was super fun and you never knew what was going to be there from one day to the next, or who. Here's a picture an old friend of my brother took that I saw the other day. I think that's Jabari skating, and I'm not sure who's filming, but getting background props are my old homies Greg, Jon, and Josh. Good times, hope everyone from back in the day is doing well! -Worful
Update: Mitts has informed me that the filmer in question is none other than Tim Bruns!

Well it had looked like the weather had started to change for the worse, but this weekend wasn't too bad. So I ended up meeting up with some fellow riders not too far from my apartment and skated (or rather I watched them skate) what seemed like a pretty nice ledge. Everyone proceeded to hit it up (Alex mostly just chubbed it up) and some sick stuff went down. My favorite was Bobby's long front board though. Yeah Bob! As the days get colder we'll just have to keep our heads up and hope for more sessions like these. -Worful

Our good pal Kyle Beachy has a new skateboarding-related writing project on the sports website the classical. His goal appears to offer an in-depth intelligent approach to writing about an activity who's appointed or accidentally appointed scribes rarely delve far beyond the realm of beer and van farts. So if your a Boil the Ocean fanatic or a geeky, egghead type who would rather pontificate about board riding from the safety of your Macintosh rather than get out there and do the damn thing, you will probably love it!
Of course i'm kidding Kyle, you have the wickedest back heel out!
His first entry about the whole Nyjah thing everyone was all fired up about, whenever that was, can be found right... about.... HERE.
Guy and I went spot searching this past weekend. He spotted some stuff he wants to come back to, but all I spotted was this non-spot in the form of a far too mellow bank up to a loading dock ledge. Guy made the most of it though with a nice slappy. -Worful

I met up for another meeting of Skate Club. What's Skate Club? Well unfortunately the first rule of Skate Club is that you do not talk about Skate Club. Moving on, Sam was filming all the sick stuff that was going down. Rumors are already swirling that he's working on his own video, but only time will tell. -Worful

Due to a compelling unkown force I found myself at the High Ridge park on my birthday, just like two birthdays previous. In other news I got a fisheye! I had a fisheye before the days of the blog, but because of unforeseen circumstances it was expropriated from me. Anyway I'm glad I got one again, but I forgot just how dang hard it is to shoot with one. Never the less I had a super fun night with my homies. Thanks you guys! -Worful
