I don't want to discourage anyone from skating the amazing Kingshighway spot, but please be extra careful there because I've heard that chunks of cement are unfortunately falling from the ceiling there lately. So yeah, just wanted to let ya'll know. -Worful


Bobby, Schwartz, and Sam came over to my house yesterday and we headed over to the grandpa ledge so Sam could try some crazy stuff. He didn't get it, YET, but we all had fun there. There were tons of pretty betties headed to the show at the symphony there while we were skating. There were also ACTUAL grandpa sightings at the grandpa ledge in the form of some well-dressed older gentleman headed to the symphony. Later we headed to this hip off Sarah street and Schwartz continued his rippage. Meanwhile Bobby was straight up innovating, as he's known to do. -Worful

Preston has been posting some of his (mostly embarrasing) photos of our current trip in Sydney, Australia on his blog.

We can only assume there will be another one of his famous montages of this trip coming soon. here is his vimeo page

Bagels and Beers

This is The High Five and Krew/Supra rider Scott "Horsey" Walker's blog. There is a good grip of photos from our most recent The High Five trip on there as well as Horsey's other photograpic musings from his native London and beyond.

It is at least 10 times more interesting than this post i've made about it.

Does Malto's private training facility require fingerprint access?

Does Robocop patrol the grounds?


So Bobby and I met up with Joel at the Gateway ledges yesterday. We skated the ledges for a bit before Bobby got bored and decided to skate something else there. Meanwhile Joel was trying to get some background props, but then decided to test out the new Pretty "Grass Cruiser" (in stores soon). -Worful

Some of the DVS and Matix team came through St. Louis not too long ago and they posted this video. Meanwhile Es just welcomed Josh Matthews to the team and he's got some sick tricks at some local spots as well. Awesome!

I got a call from Drew and Alex the other day saying that the steep banks on Southwest were covered in snow, BUT they fashioned something to skate there anyway. Way to use the old noodle boys! Then Joe Jackson and Troy showed up and put on quite an impressive flatground demo. I took notes. -Worful

I had an elusive Schwartz sighting the other day, at the Plan Nine park. He was, of course, ripping. Good to see you Jon! -Worful

Tim Ward made this fantastic documentary as a cautionary tale about the ups and downs (mostly downs in this case) of skating, starring our friend Bobby.


Sunday we woke up early-ish at Tim's and went to the famous pop-over ledges. Tim brought his blogging A-game and filmed some lines of Bobby. It was unseasonably chilly the first night we got in town, but Saturday and Sunday were really nice and it was amazing to be outside in a t-shirt given that St. Louis was so cold. Some of the same homies from the day before met up with us and we headed to the El Mirage skatepark for a quick session. There we met up with some guys who were in town from Indiana, and we went down the block to check out a new handrail spot everyone had been wanting to see. Things got off to a quick start and other than Brad hurting his knee and Dylan hurting his board we had a lot of fun. Michael wrapped things up nicely by destroying the rail entirely, and THEN kept going on the kinked one next to it. Wow! After that we went to get some delicious burgers Tim kept telling us about. They were in fact delicious, and while we were eating there was something supposedly entertaining on the television, but we were much more distracted by the cute girl working behind the counter. Stay fly burger girl! We ended the night by going to the Chandler skatepark which was fun. Randy practiced several "Ploesser Plop" variations, and Bob practiced several slam variations. The next day we hiked up Camelback Mountain the next day with Randy, Lucy, Ari and his ladyfriend, and Peter which was a ton of fun. It was a great end to a great trip, buuuuut we had to go somewhere to make it complete before we got dropped off at the airport. All in all the trip was an amazing time and I'm really lucky I got to share it with Bob. Thanks so much to Tim and everyone else for making it so awesome! Until next time (which is soon I hope). -Worful

So Bobby and I went to Arizona for the weekend and we had a crazy good time to say the least. But before we left we thought it would be fun to sit at the airport for a few hours. Actually our flight got cancelled and then the new one we got on was delayed, but never the less we made it to there late that night and Tim was there to pick us up. We immediately went to Walmart to pick up some sleeping bags and then promptly fell asleep on Tim's floor. The next morning we went straight to The Wedge so Bobby could try and kickflip it (he wussed out), but instead we skated the park and Tim gave us a tour of the many notable things to skate around said park. None of which we actually skated, but the tour was fun all the same. T.J. and Kevin showed up and ripped. Then we moved on to the Icehouse ledge, but things quickly gravitated across the street to this tall electrical box that SOMEONE somehow nollie noseslid before. And as we skated there more and more dudes showed up, and they all were killing it! They were also all super nice and fun to be around as we quickly found out. The electrical box was pretty much shut down by Ryan, so we headed over to some hubbas to scope them out. But Ryan thought it was only logical to drop in on the wall there, duh. It was heavily documented due to it's amazing and confusing nature. Next we went to this really fun parking garage. At this point Bob and I were really feeling the vibe of the day and all the spots, it felt like home. And yeah the parking garage was suuuuuper good and yielded quite a session. Plus Peter showed up! Preston and him took things to the edge, and then T.J. took things to the dome. I also ran across the street to catch Dylan style his way through a crooked ledge, during which a dude on a bike rode by informing us of a new "skatepark" nearby. Intrigued, we headed off in search of what would surely be and epic diamond in the rough. But it ended up just being rough, but also fun! Ryan continued his destruction as well. After such a fun day we were told there was only one way to put an exclamation point on it: pizza. -Worful
