Last night I could barely stay awake. Tonight, I can't go to sleep. I think I'm finally a victim of jet lag. Here's a dump of random photos from my camera today. It's 2:30am in Amsterdam...

Jake from Volcom took my camera and I found this photo of Peter Molek on it.

The grown ups stayed on the ground at the grill.
DJ Wade should get a raise for his surprise working on a Friday night. Not from SPoTlight Productions, from some other company.

Bird bowl.
When dude's got short sleeves on, you think the rest of the lady is there, then you're disappointed with skeleton.
Ice exists here! Here's proof! Wow, it's like gold here.
Paul Zitzer didn't get to make this backside noseblunt due to a bowl troll crash to possible broken foot. Lame.

Jason Rothmeyer, SPoTlight Productions head judge, looks pretty unnatural grabbing his board.

And of course, I have to hand the camera over to Jason to get my own meron grab in. Know why it's called a meron grab here.
