Took a couple days off of the raddest people out/ vote for delancy's gerber baby through my bio. But back to the truest.... #barkerbarrett is from not too far from where I grew up. I remember going to cheapskates when I when I was 12. It was my first time to a skatepark. Me and my buddy were so intimidated that we skated the micro in the back for 15 min or so then we sat and watched Barker, Jay and Ken Sigafoos, Boyle and the late Sean Miller. My mom thought it was a waste of a trip because we only rode for a few min but little did she know how much that day fuel my desire to push my self. It changed my life and here we are 20 some odd years later it's rad to call Barker and the Sigs my friends. That day changed a lot for me and it was just a sesh for them. So don't be a tool because you never know how a normal Tuesday night can change a strangers life. Thanks bud, love you....
Day whatever, vote for Delancy gerber baby..,, one of my favorite people on this planet on and off the board.... @strutang I remember the first time meeting Justin, I was skating at the Bama banks and he showed up. We were introduced and he said something about the hard way... I was so confused then he told me that I had a photo in the skateboard mag (Ollie over the rail at school 11 in jersey, shot by the best dude out Brian Uyeda) and the caption said Ollie the hard way. He was one of my favorite skaters forever and we never met, so It was a really cool way to meet. Now it's many years, beers, miles and smiles later, I'm so glad we got so close. Miss you and that damn smile, hope you are well brother.
Well day 13 vote Delancy gerber baby. It's hard to find a photo that shows how awesome Dennis Busenitz is so I found one that makes me think of him. I've never met some one that skates as much as he does. I remember staying in sf for the winters and I'd skate with him a bunch. Well a bunch for my standards. Every day I was waking up at 11or so and skating until happy hour. While he was waking up and out the door by 8 and pushing fast as fork all around the city(even up hills which was kinda fork'n annoying). But that's why he's as great as he is. He skates faster, harder and sweatier than anyone I know. Thanks for making me feel like a pussy for all these years buddy!!!
Well I did 12 last night but my battery died as it was posting so I'll do 2 tomorrow. But it was @westgatebrandon. If anyone has seen a video part of his you know how amazing of a skateboarder he is, what you don't know how great of a guy he is. It feels weird saying guy since I was traveling with him when he was 13. But he has a work ethic that you don't find in kids any more. I'm more stoked on the man he's become more than the success he has on the skateboard. Most want to move to California and buy fancy cars, he bought land and started a cranberry bog. A highly risky/taxing profession, and he stayed close to home. I love you brother and am so proud of you. Once the weather breaks I'd love to come up with the fam and see the place! Tell the fam I said hello!
Day 11 vote Delancy for gerber, #prayformejasonjessee. The old consolidated videos changed my life. They really were sticking their fingers up at the industry and did it their way. Such an interesting individual who has the best frontside Ollie in the world. I remember going into Steve Faas' apt in philly many years ago and he had this photo blown up to about 6ft by 8ft. Fuck'n knew there was a reason I loved that dude. #stevefaas
Day 8 vote for Delancy, gerber baby contest. Another no brainer is @pduffplanb. So far ahead of his time and his foot is still on the gas. All you youngsters go watch Questionable and Virtual Reality which came out 20 years ago(so forked up it's been that long!) Keep ripping bud, hope to see you soon.
Day 6 &7 vote for Delancy gerber baby, I thought I posted Ed last night but it didn't post. So today is a double banger. 2 all time rulers. Ed Templeton has always been one of my favorites. 1281 was what I watched everyday before skating 5 miles to the TJ Max curb to skate. And Danny I was always a fan of his buttery style, and am so glad I got to know him over the years. Even a better dude off the board. Thanks for the lifetime of inspiration.
Day 5 vote for Delancy/gerber baby, I had to go with some 5boro family. Joe Tookmanian is the real fork'n deal. He has the work ethic and determination that not many people are born with. He comes from a family that has nothing but love and deals with no bullshit from the outside world. If you ever get to skate with him you'll be blown away and be left trying to figure out which way he skates. #joetook #5boronyc @5boronyc
