I don’t know how all this works yet, so I am going to try and post a link. This is some footage I digitized from a 1989 Nude Bowl Session with myself, Lester Kasai, and Richard Salazar AKA Sal…
Maybe after I do 10 or 20 bonehead moves like posting this, Randy will teach me how to put a proper link up…
Here’s the link He has a YouTube account now, video after the jump.

I thought there might be a skateable pool behind the fence, so I held my phone up and angled it over the top. I guess 1 out of 2 ain’t bad, and it is technically skateable now.

Skreech in the New York Times? Why not? He’s already the subject of one (possibly two?) documentary film. So the The New York Times is right on top of the (latest) recession-as-silver-lining for pool skaters story, so my condolences to everyone in California because it must be officially over now. (You are a child of Summer and Winter is coming…) Salba quote? Check. How does he do it? Must be a state law. Reporters have to declare it at customs. I see you’re doing a story on pool skating, can I see your Salba Documents? Watch the trailer for Dragonslayer after the jump.

Near I can tell, this video is like a DVD extras talking about Bones Wheels footage shot in Florida. Idon’t know if the actual Bones footage as seen the light of day yet, but check out that product placement on Seth Levy. South Florida Pool Invasion from Drew Perlmutter after the jump.
Every once and a while I remember to put some actual skateboarding on this site. I’ve been sitting on these photos for a couple of years. This was in the land of the Swoosh, in fact, almost in it’s shadow.
Fred’s family has a permission pool and has always gone out of their way to accommodate the skaters that session there. Unfortunately, their house was destroyed by fire recently. The skateboarding community is trying to give a little back this Saturday with a benefit bash at the bowl. Any money raised goes directly to Fred’s family. The location is 7385 Road 6, Firebaugh, California. Check out the flyer.
Oregon local Rion Linderman joined the team at Addikt skateboards. Here’s a shot of him down south at Curtis’ pool in Sacramento, working for the man. Check out the Shot of the Week.
This week’s Shot of the Week comes from Colin Walsh. Whether or not he rules depends on what side of the bed he woke up on that morning. This is Brandon Morris at the Buena Vista pool in Watsonville California. Brandon loves Watsonville so much he had it tattooed on his legs. Are those NOS Airwalks or did they bring back the old logo? Man I hated that logo and those shoes when they first came out. (No offense, Brandon.) Hey look kids. it’s Pabst Blue Ribbon! Check out the Shot of the Week.
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.
- Thanks to ColinWalshRules for the tip.
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.
