Inset: An amusing fake Salba workout video. Good concept, a little sloppy on the follow through. Larger: Skating the wildfire pools of California with Salba. The first quarter is setup, but they get to the pool eventually. Watch them both after the jump.

This is a shot of Packy shortly before he started making his way up here for the Trifecta. In fact the Addikt Skateboards team is doing a little tour on their way up here. I met Packy some five years ago when he showed up out of nowhere (from the east coast actually) to enter the Reedsport Loop contest. He was unknown to any of the Oregonians, and he proceeded to surprise the hell out of everyone by throwing multiple loops into his practice runs. Then Skreech showed up and started looping on basically every run. It was overwhelming. Funny thing is, both of these guys made Geth Noble step up to the plate and eventually out loop them all to wint the contest. Actually, Skreech had the high number for the day, but he overdid it and had to drop out of the actual contest. Both Skreech and Packy are on Addikt now, and Packy is still getting upside down. Check it out after the jump.
For some reason, the Weather Channel has video about people who are filling in their pools because they can’t afford to keep them. I guess the weather causes the water to evaporate… Well anyway, it’s a slightly different take on the crappy economy, empty pool syndrome. Check it out.

But not really. Here are four pool skating videos, three of which have a connection. If you can guess it you’ll win the coveted No-prize. The last one is vaguely connected with SnA, in that we loaded it up on YouTube. It was supposed to accompany Skreech Week. Check ’em out after the jump.
Oh no! It’s a picture of a pool on the Internet. This one from S&A reader, of a pool that was kept under wraps for quite a while (over a year) until it was independently discovered by multiple parties near a corporate campus. This shot is fairly old too.
Day six of the Addikt Skateboards Full Bloom Tour. It’s Skreech Week baby, and this is Phoenix, Arizona.
