I'm so grateful to not be in an airport right now. For the past few weeks it's been nonstop travel, but today was different...normal day at @theboardr, session on the #dreamdriveway after work, and dinner at my own kitchen table. The flights start again on Thursday, but I'm enjoying being in Tampa for now...
I flew out to LA on Wednesday night, had my top-secret, invite-only, industry who's-who meeting (I'm grateful to be included) yesterday, and now I'm flying home to Tampa. On a lighter, non-political note, we have our 3rd #TheBoardrAm tomorrow at Bradenton Riverwalk Skatepark. Winner gets a spot in the Finals at X Games and hangs with the #boardrboys in Austin, all expenses paid. Hope to see you there!
While I was "on vacation" (as @porpe puts it) in Australia last weekend, the rest of the #boardrboys hosted @grindforlifeorg at Lakeland Skatepark. Check the coverage at TheBoardr.com. I swear I told them to do the bowl portion of the Contest in the big bowl, not the flow bowl, but maybe Jorge was like, "Clem will never know..."
Traveling and experiencing other places and cultures is the best. It's pretty easy to get by in Australia, though. The accents are heavy, so you have to listen carefully. And be sure to look both ways because they "drive on the wrong side of the road." But I always get a little laugh out of the way things are worded in other places. In Oz you get brekky, not breakfast, and your to-go order is take-away. Had a great time here...Tampa-bound now, with care.
