In January I went to Ethiopia for what became a truly life changing experience. Please check out the trailer we made for "Dream Big - Skateboarders in Ethiopia" at xgames.com. Full show airs on 7/11/15 Thanks to everyone involved for making this happen! ✌️ @_let_it_flow @ayc @kellehuston @nyjah @mikemanzoori @mehringsbearings @tonyhawk @dwrexx @aaronjawshomoki @megabiskate @mattberger_ @soberjedi @theamerican @itsdanreed @transworldskate #jvargo @xgames
The first time I heard Drive Like Jehu I shit my pants...literally! I was at Camp Woodward and @ckramer72 put the tape on so I could hear it as he thought i'd be into them. And while I became a super fan later, at this point I was just listening and loving what I heard. While we were sitting there I let out a fart...or so I thought. Somewhere between a full shit and a small shart is what went down. I didn't say anything to Chad I don't think, I just pinched my shorts and got back to the camp cabin as quick as possible. That said, since day one this band has made me shit myself time and time again in one way or another. In the early days of the internet there was only one photo of DLJ that I could find and it was from a show at The Casbah...that photo hung on my wall for years until I moved out of my parents. To see them play there last night was seriously a dream come true. Thx for the last minute hookup @halloran #timpyles I owe you one! 📷 @otisserie 💩💩💩
When I was a kid, more than anywhere else I dreamed of skating the Raging Waters ramp and watching Hosoi and Cab blast airs. By the time I got here in 97' it was long gone. I've been very lucky to skate all around the world, but still I look at these photos and holy shit do I wish I could have seen that place in person. If you could pick one spot to have skated where would it be?
