Tomorrow, Saturday May 1st, there will be a pub skrawl (yes, a pub crawl on skateboards) beginning at the skate spot formerly known as "Shitside." It must be noted that the spot under the Kingshighway bridge also refers to itself simply as "The Shit" or by the cryptic symbol O*O. Despite these confusing twists of self-reference, it has been reported that the work produced at the spot has not lowered in quality or become less prolific.


We will rendevous around 6 o'clock and skate from there to whichever bar in the vicinity we decide on. This will be following a day long filming mission starting at the tennis courts and ending at O*O, to chronicle some of skating and work done at DIY spots in St. Louis for a video piece on The Skateboard Mag's website. If you have any footage of construction at the spots or footage of good skating at the spots, contributions will be happily accepted for inclusion in the edit.

It has also been said that O*O will be under generator lights that same night, and if that is the case then a somewhat tipsy night session will also be in order. All are welcome, hope to see you there!


Here's a nice video by David Probst of some local rippers that was sent to us. I'm not sure I approve of all the cursing, but the skating is sick. Thanks guys!

Yesterday everyone woke up to Jack and Randy breaking it down on the Rap-master keyboard. It was amazing, and I hope Randy posts the video he shot of it. After that we walked down the street to get some breakfast, and then headed off for a fun session at the Roselle park. If you've been wondering what David Uthus has been doing since he moved to Chicago just read his shirt. I got to see Ryan, who's responsible for printing the amazing Dude Life boards. Also Bobby's good buddy Rob showed up. I asked him if there was anything he wanted to shoot, and we tried a couple things but wasn't satisfied. But then it came to him: ollie to front disaster. Then I headed back home to St. Louis. Thanks guys! -Worful


Thanks so much to everyone who organized Dave's event, and to everyone who showed their support in person or through an online donation. Your help is very appreciated! The event itself seemed to go off without a hitch, and was a super fun time. Lots of people showed up, tons of stuff was auctioned and raffled off, and some great bands played. And check out these shirts that Anders Nilsen drew, modeled by Randy! So rad. Anyway, thank you, thank you, thank you to everyone! -Worful

HAPPY 4/20

Apparently today was a national holiday of some sort. So to celebrate, Jack, Dave and myself went for a mid afternoon session at downtown Chicago's Plastic Park. There was a lot of ripping but we never did figure out what's so special about 4/20.


I'm really digging Kendal's board. Not just because of the drawing on the top, but also because it's so beat up. Meanwhile Drew screen printed this awesome design on the top of his I and think it looks pretty rad. -Worful

Saturday I met up with a whole gang of dudes at the fountain, it was sick. Alex, Chris, Kendal, Alex from Columbia, Drew, Jared, Herbert, Joel, Bobby, Jack, and Guy. Some major ripping went down on the ledge, while the rest of the crew got into some pretty heated games of S.K.A.T.E. in the street. I think Kendal was the MVP of the session. Despite getting his board wet, he pulled off a kickflip front nose and switch heelflip front nose. Wow! Then he celebrated by taking a short stroll up a tall wall. Later even more people showed up, but by that time Bobby, Jack, Guy, and myself had left to grab some food and skate our other favorite fountain at Tower Grove as long as we could before getting the boot. Then of course we finished the day with another game of S.K.A.T.E. -Worful

Thanks to SBC Skateboard Magazine for sending me their newest issue that my illustration ran in! Also thanks to Randy for writing some very nice words about me for the contributor's page, and thanks to Guy for shooting the photo that ran on that page. A real team effort! I'm psyched. -Worful

Good job to Jake and Wissman for getting mentioned on Crailtap! Wissman got on there twice actually, first in front of the camera then behind it. Also check out Wissman's photography site.

I went skating with Guy, Bobby, and Alex this weekend. We went to a few spots and ended up at the fountain at one point, where we ran into Bobby Taylor, Jared, Larry, and Chris. They were holding it down there for sure. We skated around the corner so Alex could 5-0 the inside of this ledge, then we headed to the Central West End and Bobby found this chain to ollie. Very nice weather, very nice session. Keep it coming spring. -Worful
