@bodychrons and @rtclem on the airwaves. @hidefjoe on the video. @porpe on the junior executive general management. @justinsworld heading up the judges staff. @bfd_bob holding it down back home for Monday's Bland Opening. This crew at @theboardr is shaping up to be pretty damn tight. Thanks all y'all for coming to the Grind for Life thing today.
@justinsworld brought in some of his 80's boards to put in The Boardr Store. I'm staring into a big empty warehouse in the TF right now with this Gator board that has his girlfriend on it that he later murdered and now sits in jail for. Crazy. We're unlocking the door at The Boardr Store on Monday. I'm calling it the Bland Opening. There's no grand opening hoopla, no ribbon cutting, or anything like that. We have too much work left to call this a real opening. We don't even have a sign yet. But, we'll be there all day Monday until 6pm hanging out and maybe enjoying a flat ground session with you in our empty TF. See you there if you're stopping by. The Boardr HQ, 4611 North Hale Avenue, Tampa, FL 33614.
Check @theboardr site for a closer look at the Santa Cruz Star Wars series we got in this week. It will be available on Monday, March 3. We also open up at 11am that day for the first official time. There's nothing grand about the opening, though. We still have a long way to go before we feel finished around here. Rather than a "grand opening," it's a more casual, "you can stop by now and buy something if you want." Maybe I'll see you on Monday for a flatground session? We'll be here until 6pm.
Remember when mags used to run sequences on the cover? The Editor is bringing it back like eS with this sequence from Lakeland Skatepark. If you recognize the song, see you in the old guys division next weekend at the GFL Contest run by @theboardr and the crew @rtclem, @porpe, and the exciting return of @bodychrons to the mic. I don't know the new cover boy here, if you do, please tag him and let him know yet another career has been launched by getting a cover of The Mag.
On Saturday, March 1, the first Grind for Life Skateboarding Contest in the Series goes down at Lakeland Skatepark. Am I going to see you there so I can put you on photographic blast? @theboardr is running all five of these events with the final one being at The Boardr HQ in November. Register at the link in my profile or email me at Rob@TheBoardr.com and I'll get you in there. There's a division for everyone at these in both bowl and street. Funny how these days only people who don't skate think there's an age limit for skateboarding.
After six hours of mullet rock cover bands jammed down there in Curtis Hixon Park for Gasparilla, it finally ended in fireworks just now. Brittany got me this 53 Pen that's the best gadget ever for an iPad. I'm using it to clown up all my photos like this. There's a review and more masterpieces on @theboardr site.
