We had the pleasure of spending about 24 hours in New York this week for the Agenda Trade Show. It was a productive time of meetings and general sketchy skateboard industry bid'niss bro downs.

We had a few hours to kill in Los Angeles before flying back home from Damn Am Woodward West last weekend, so we found a hipster lunch spot and hit the streets with Jata, Yonnie, and crew while they were getting GX clips.

I can't believe all the things we've done in the last 40 or so hours. After landing in Johannesburg following 30+ hours of traveling, we've had an adventure that has included gambling, drinking, skating, wildlife, and friends from around the world. Here's a camera dump so far...

We’re in Copenhagen right now to run Copenhagen Pro. We came out a few days early to help with an am contest they set up out here for the locals. Here’s a small sample of some of our day today after being up for 35 or so hours so far. It's an overnight redeye flight here landing in the morning and then straight to "work". "Work" being all this fun ass stuff we get to do. Stay tuned all weekend at skateparkoftampa.com for more coverage from Copenhagen.

When I first got to Detroit and saw the miles and miles of run down neighborhoods and abandoned buildings, I was amazed that it reminded me of parts of Cuba I visited. How can this happen in America? I learned a lot walking through these neighborhoods and talking to some residents. I know everyone says skateboarding is the best thing ever, but after learning about this scene in Detroit and what skateboarders are doing there, you really understand that this skateboard thing and the culture of it is truly something special. Here are some photos and words...

Zumiez invited us to hang out at their Baltimore Couch Tour stop where the Girl team was stopping by for a demo and signing. We lurked the town and hung out all day. Check out a few photos from our adventure.

My first trip of the year was pretty damn eventful. I don’t think I could have asked for anything more. I went to LA, Long Beach, Encinitas, and Keystone, CO, all in a week’s time, and it was quite an adventure. Good times, great skating, and amazing people. Thanks to Agenda and Zumiez for making it all possible…

How many tourist missions have we had in all these towns around the world? I love all this time back in Tampa before travel madness starts up again in the spring. It's time for a tourist mission in our own town. Downtown in my neighborhood. I took the cruiser board and my big fat camera for a stroll through and came back with this chill cam dump.

Clem, Schaefer, and my fellow Innetech inventory slangster Justin Ryan were with me in Portland last week for some meetings with our friends at Nike to go over all kinds of things. Here are a few photos and some video.

We just arrived on site at the Maloof Money Cup Skate Plaza in Kimberley, South Africa. I came out a few days early to see the cast of Lion King in real life and do the usual tourist mission. Here's a few photos from all that.

Justin and I got the opportunity to head to NYC a few weeks ago for Agenda. Colin found out and wanted to meet us up there for some work and good times, too. We flew in an entire day early to skate around and experience the City life.

After CPH PRO, Rob took off on his own private Euro-trip while a few of us stayed back and did a little extra work. But the work was laid back, exactly in the Copenhagen fashion.

I've been on a train in Belgium for the last two hours going the wrong direction thanks to some train station guy that told me the wrong way to go. Oh well, nice adventure. I'm on my way to Bruge to meet Rothmeyer. Here's a few photos of tourist mission through Prague for a quick 24 hours.

Our first day in Copenhagen involved a travel recovery nap early in the morning, then rolling through the city on bikes and boards, wrapping up with a nice dinner with our Copenhagen friends over the intricacies of the sketchy skateboard industry and our favorite pros that are in town this weekend.

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...

I'm here in Holland with the entire SPoTlight Productions crew minus that one guy who started a bar in Tampa and stayed home. We are here to watch a bunch of cleated mullets kick a ball into a box. Nah...

Brian and I stayed behind in Copenhagen while the rest of the crew took off on Monday after the event. Our mission was to host a few demos and then a small contest at this thing called Roskilde Festival.
