Pushing your personal limits and filming a full, legit video part, regardless of your ability, has got to be one of the most difficult things to do in skateboarding. Add in being over 40...and very few can pull that off. Hats off to my good friend, associate, and vegan/XXX inspiration @vernlaird for making us old dudes proud...again. You can check out the full part at jenkemmag.com.
I landed in Barcelona this morning, got settled in my hotel, and then headed out to explore. I skated around and saw so much cool architecture and culture in this amazing city, and finally made my way over to MACBA, where there were several hundred people hanging out, skating, drinking, smoking, and just enjoying the end of summer in Spain. I'm here for #adidasskatecopa, and there couldn't be a better destination...
This Bible is well over 100 years old. It belonged to my grandparents on my mom's side, the Emeneos. I've been going through a lot of my stuff recently, and this one is a keeper...along with that kid in my other arm. Someday I'll pass it on to her. It's been great to be at home for the past 12 days and enjoy just being around Tampa, going to @theboardr HQ, and skating the #dreamdriveway...
Rolled up pants? Check. Shirt with band you've never heard of? Check. Tattoos on fingers? Check. Yes, you can hang with this cool dude tomorrow from 11am to 6pm at @theboardr HQ for Open House Saturdays. @bfd_bob be giving away a gift certificate for a free pair of @Emerica shoes to the best trick filmed on this ledge. Tag The Boardr and we will choose the winner on Sunday.
"Daddy, do you remember me?" Heart. Broken. I hadn't seen my kid for three weeks until early this morning. I'm beyond grateful for generous opportunities that the skateboarding industry has granted me and I wouldn't change a thing, but I'll be damned if I don't miss Sloane and @jennaclements when I'm on the road...
Sometimes thing happen in life that aren't so pretty. This is a baby opossum caught in a trap intended for a rat on the side of my house. I noticed the poor lil guy when I was taking out the trash this morning. I freed him, and hoped he would scurry away. But his leg was mangled, he couldn't walk, and was very weak, so I put him down as humanely as possible. All creatures are special in their own way, and this sad image has been burned in my head all day long. He's running around 'possum Heaven right now...
River rats, as owner of the #dreamdriveway, I hereby declare that orange tree to be sole property of the Clements Family. You are not permitted to gnaw, eat, or taste the oranges. In fact, the entire tree is off limits to all rats. If any rat chooses to breach this declaration, I will be using this badass Daisy Powerline 35 that @jennaclements gifted me on my birthday to seek justice.
Another year older and another back d (at Poe Mill - photo @joshfriedberg). Thanks for the endless flow of birthday wishes all day. I really felt the love and friendship. I'm in Greenville, SC for #Innoskate at @tcmupstate. Come hang with the #BoardrBoys tomorrow. All info is at TheBoardrEvents.com.
I got home on Monday from 10 days in Huntington Beach. It had rained a lot while I was gone...so much that our plane had to land in Orlando that morning because TIA was closed due to storms. Then we were bussed home to Tampa, of course while it was still raining. Later that day it stopped pouring, just enough to sneak in a session on the #dreamdriveway. Due to the insane humidity, this is the only spot that wouldn't dry.
When you roll up to the #vandoreninvitational early in the morning, before the official Practice starts, this is the sort of thing that you might run into. @christianhosoi and @mrolson on the fs grinds with @lancemountain documenting. Wow! Live broadcast starts at 4pm PST at VansUSOpenofSurfing.com!
