Today I got the unexpected chance to "Fly Board" at a skate demo we were doing in Cypress Texas! It was extremely fun and I definitely want to do it again. Thanks to Ronnie Feise and Max Miller of @hydrorockets for teaching me how to do it. Check them out at http://www.hydrorockets.com #flyboard #flyboarding
Side by side of Bill Pennington's photo and Douglas Berdeaux's hand drawn version of it. Bill was almost stabbed by a crazy homeless man when he was taking the photo, so the illustration makes it that much more worth it. Footage of the trick is in my video part of Skateboarding Realms. I really had a good time doing those grinds and combos at the flagpole spot. #skateboarding #art #skateboardingrealms #illustration #mentalityskateboards #houston
Another perspective of Jon Garner formulating his next artpiece to be made from my used decks. I skated many of these decks during the making of my video part in 'Skateboarding Realms' and a couple of them were skated during the making of 'Skateboarding Explained: The Instructional DVD'. Those videos mean a lot to me and I'm honored Jon is working on this. Check out Jon's artwork @artboy76 and his studio in Houston at 2500 Summer Street, Artboy designs suite 2110 #jongarner #skateboarding #skateboard #skateboardingrealms #skateboardingexplained #art #skateandcreate #houstonart #houstonartist #houston #mentalityskateboards
Looking on as Jon Garner describes his vision for my used decks to me. Those are Jon's finished art pieces behind us, so I am excited to see what he creates.

Ali Jusović's clay sculpture of me, on display at his art exhibition in Slovenia. See the full exhibition with his other skateboarding art sculptures here https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.1088934714460160.1073741964.175396332480674&type=3&pnref=story #skateboarding #skateart #clayart #scupture #artexhibition #alijusovic #almirjusovic
Side by side of the 15x7 clay sculpture Ali Jusović made of me, and the photo that inspired it. The sculpture will be shown in Ali's art exhibit in Slovenia for the next two weeks. I was 12 when this photo was taken but I remember doing the trick very well. Photo by my brother John. #skateboarding #clayart #almirjusovic #alijusovic #artexhibit
Ali Jusović of Slovenia just completed this 15 x 7 clay sculpture of me. It is inspired from a photo my brother John took when I was 12. I'm doing a tuck knee off our launch ramp in southwest Houston. It will be in Ali's exhibition in Slovenia for the next 2 weeks. #almirjusovic #alijusovic #art #skateboarding #clay
This signed Cleats comic strip image was just sent to me by Andy Slack. The artist @bzztank has a son who skates and attended our Mentality Skateboards demo at Humble Skatepark, which inspired the strip. It was in major newspapers nationwide and in Australia on March 27, 2005. See a clear version of it here http://www.gocomics.com/cleats/2005/03/27 #BillHinds #cleats #comicstrip #skateboarding #mentalityskateboards #memorabilia #newspaper #comics
I just ran into @travisbarker at a restaurant. It is the first time we've met, but upon introducing myself, he told me he knows exactly who I am... Pretty cool when a rock star says that to you. I also showed him my "Skateboarding Realms" video part, and he was stoked on it. He's in a new band Antemasque and they're playing at Fitzgerald's Houston tonight. #travisbarker #blink182 #antemasque @thrashermag
@yuriyuri_desu sent me this "Joy and Sorrow 2" DVD package from Japan. Like part 1, it takes you on a cool tour of underground Japan street spots, with a shredding all female cast of skaters. The filmer of JAS2, Yuri Murai, surprised me with a first for a video part, by doing all of her street tricks while holding a video camera. There's also an all female slam section to show the sorrow part of the process of landing skate tricks. The ender if the video shows a lot of heart and any skater would be proud to have landed it. Thanks Yuri! #joyandsorrow #skateboarding #skatevideo #skateandcreate #streetskating
This signed Mentality X-Ray deck will be auctioned off tomorrow at the Oral Cancer Foundation Walk for Awareness in Houston. I am donating it in memory of Houston skater Nathan Hart who passed away from oral cancer. There will be free oral cancer screenings tomorrow. The location is White Oak Conference Center 7603 Antoine Drive Houston, TX 77088 More info at OralCancer.org
Switch nose slide past the rail in a Houston area parking garage. 2004. I also did a 50-50 180 out on this in 1998, which you can see by searching my name and the year on youtube. That pole at the bottom makes it sketchy to do and I only had a few minutes to do it, because this spot is high security. Photo by Randy Bradley #skateboarding #streetskating #houston #texas
Rest In Peace Allie. My favorite cat passed away the other day. She is from @surfhousehtx And brought a lot of joy to me and my family. This is a picture of her featured on Petcentric by Purina. In 2012 I had a bad heat exhaustion / heat stroke and I became very sick for a while. She stayed with me every day helping me heal. When I made Skateboarding Realms she was always around. I will always miss her. #Repost @petcentric ・・・ "I deserve to be in any hall of fame!"
Gershon Mosley sent me this DVD copy of "Obcession". It features Gershon's latest part, and parts from many other shredders skating true street terrain. I have a trick in the friends section... To get your copy, message Gershon on Facebook. #skatevideo #obcession #gershonmosley #skateboarding #streetskating
