It's only going to be a couple more years before I finally stop getting Tyson Bowerbank and Alex Longcamp confused. This is Tyson and he's growing up and getting damn good.

Thanks to Red Bull, Indy, Arnette, Mob, Transworld, Dean Guitars and Swiss for helping us not lose as much money as we could have on this Contest.
The Dean Guitars were sick. I think with my metal ass hair, I should be entitled to one of these.
Next door at JJ's, we all got roped in by the Minnesota pull tabs. They're the northern redneck lottery tickets.
What were we thinking renting this party bus?
Colin Clark brought the entire city of Boise with him.

When we arrived downtown from that party bus, there was nothing organized going on, so we just wandered around and ended up in some club where we don't belong. There was a fashion show and girls weren't wearing pants. At least that was cool.
If you end up dancing by yourself at the jock star club, you probably deserve to lose your phone.

If you'd rather dance with a strange dude than by yourself, well...
Skater Profile: Colin Clark
Yes, we had to go. Colin loves these Japanese tourist photos like this where you just stand in front of something.

The fakie 360 shuv is a classic old guy move, usually done on flat with no pop if you're over 30. Paul Hart shows you how to snap it and make it look good.

These days, a good sign of growing up is when you start flipping out of tricks other than 50-50's. Tyson Bowerbank demonstrates.
