From the big city to the smaller big city

Here is some footage from recent trip to Philly a week and a half ago where Maurice and I met up with the Gnarhammered Crew. We saved a few clips to be used in other things (one of those things being the barrier clip, which I am still working on). Edited to Mr. Lif - Arise.

Same Tricks, Different Spots

As I mentioned a couple posts back, Lesque Skateboards came to NYC recently. Well, last night, the photographer, RiO, sent over some photos he took of me while they were here. Here they are:

Skatopia Bonus Round

Via Gnarhammered.

While I was on Gnarhammered, I found this video that made me smile and verified that Louie Barletta is my favorite skateboarder. Watch it and get psyched about skateboarding...even if you don't skateboard.

Charles Lamb, Ben Kilpatrick, & Itoshin

48 Blocks just put up interview with NYC's own Charles Lamb. Read the interview here. In addition to the interview, they posted this full part of unseen footage of Charles from NYC and Europe.

Charles Lamb from 48BLOCKS.COM on Vimeo.

While you are at it, check out the new shop the guys at 48 Blocks opened in downtown SF, aptly named DWNTWNSF. They are going to be launching a web store this week, but in the meantime, if you are in SF or visiting SF soon, stop by and say hello...perhaps buy some skate goods. With this addition to the SF skate marketplace, their scene is on lock, alongside FTC and the DLXSF Store.

This is Ben Kilpatrick. He has some proper pop and his backside 5-0s can hang with anyone, but he is most know for his photos. You may have already seen his stuff from when I posted the photos he took of me, if not, go look through his Flickr Stream now. Then you can say you knew of him before he was larger than Atiba.

A couple weeks ago I showed some of the guys from Lesque Skateboards (out of Tokyo) around Brooklyn, starting at the Autumn Bowl, then the Greenpoint barrier, etc. Here are some of the photos on their blog. They even shot a photo of me doing a blunt fakie on the barrier:

This is from their last day, when I was unable to meet up with them but sent them a list of spots and how to get to them. Itoshin, the owner and main pro, was killing it the whole time. They put out a video called Endless Questions and Itoshin had an amazing part. Skating with him, one is to be amazed by his consistency and smooth style. Here is his Endless Questions part.

I'm back in my hometown of Tallahasse, FL to visit with friends and skate. Ben Kilpatrick is the premiere skate photographer in town and was kind enough to take some photos of me skating today. Here is one.
