etnies and SPoT Benefit for Boards for Bros

Somehow a stack of wooden pallet things caught on fire out behind Innetech where our shoe warehouse is. Flames reached the top of the building before the fire department got here and put it out. Yikes.
The fire department was already doing an investigation immediately after the incident. Good thing no one was hurt.
The fire got pretty hot.
They blew all the smoke out of Innetech for us. Thanks!
Among the fire trucks was this crazy looking contraption.
Willow was killing it, but I didn't get any sequences. This is a nollie hardflip, not usually done by white Euro dudes.

Sheckler's got a back smith up. I wonder what else he's going up in the streets. I'm sure he's got some super human video footage coming out soon.

Ah crap, I didn't get any skate photos of Tyler Bledsoe.

Thanks for the pizza, etnies.
Porpe's new move is a front board around the curved ledge.

When Dylan Perry follows up with the same front board, it's not helping Porpe's look any better.

Ryan Sheckler is the owner of the backside flip, full title, no mortgage. He does them so good.

I handed over the camera to Porpe so I could do the same thing I did last year.

Porpe's got two sequences in one session. He's probably pounding his chest right now.

Victor Wang - bigspin front board.

If you see Tyler Bledsoe, try to get him to skate Tampa Pro next week. He'll be here, but I think he's skipping it. Stalker Steve has more photos from the day on his blog.
