Here’s a pic of me riding the @megabiskate ramp in Ethiopia, as featured in @mehringsbearings’ new book “Skate The World” (published by @natgeo, on sale now). It is a fascinating glimpse of how skateboarding can transcend culture, race, gender and religion across the globe. If that idea sounds lofty, it’s because I wrote the intro. #skatetheworldproject #skatetheworld #natgeobooks amzn.to/1NZ0XQV
Pondering a steep, narrow downhill run with @pedrobarrossk8 @aaronjawshomoki & @choadped in NJ a couple weeks ago. Shortly after this, Pedro & I tumbled tragically into the grass, Jaws stayed in control with speed checks, and Ben pointed it all the way to the bottom with the loosest trucks. 📷: @brianuyeda
Happy Birthday @judoair! Remember when we were roommates with #rayunderhill and spent most of our days skating & making cheesy video edits? Now we have kids that take up our time (and are far more creative than we ever were), but at least our embarrassing videos are immortalized on YouTube for future generations to cringe at.

Stacking inverts with @andymac720 a few years ago. We did this once at my ramp (on video) and I never wanted to do it again because it was so scary. Andy kept suggesting that we revisit it in order to get a proper photo, to which I was unresponsive. He was persistent and I finally agreed, under the condition that @atibaphoto shoots it. Here is the result... but it didn't get any less scary the second time around. Thanks to Andy & Atiba for the efforts. And don't try this at home.
In celebration of #THPS5 release next week, here is the commercial for our very first game. On the day we shot it, I couldn't imagine getting to a sequel to this game (or a new version 16 years later). Thanks to all the fans of our series for making this dream possible. I hope you like THPS5 as much as I do.
