As of today the small school cooperation will be just that; a cooperation only. I will be selling out what hard goods that are left in the shop and will no longer restock. I have not updated the shop in a week or so and there will be some more boards available than are in there currently. After they are gone, that is it, no more. I will still be working with the Cooperation members, providing them material support, and making gear for them alone. We continue to work on a video project and hopefully will work on similar (and dis-similar) projects in the future. If you need me you all know where to find me.
My friend Chris and I went out to a few very mild hills yesterday evening. Mostly backpaths, sidewalks, and parking lots. We did a little video taping. Just riding around. My speed board was surely overkill for this kind of skating, but it rides smooth and is nice and low, so I just dig riding it.
No tricks. Sometimes tricks are over rated…
My first book with Dover Publications is now officially released. It is available directly from Dover or you can get it from any major Book seller such as Amazon or Borders. I have only been doing the freelance illustration gig under a year so I am pretty excited having my first major project out.
So i started having foot pain after an especially heavy skate session in May and decided to see my foot doctor about it. I have some super flat feet and I’ve been working to keep ‘em in good shape for a while but the day of my first visit, doc told me that i would have to go in for an MRI and might possibly need surgery…yikes. Today i had my follow-up for this MRI and according to it, i have some sort of chronic damage to the tendon under my foot from skating, and bone structure that could lead to some harsh arthritis when I’m older. This is all a pretty big bummer, but the doc says that i can keep on skating and talk about a possible surgery in 5 or 6 months. The pain isn’t very bad at the moment but an unrelated injury has me of the board. happy skating
