Here are a few skate photos, lurk photos, cell phone lurk video, and other randoms from the weekend at ASR. Colin Clark also has some skate footage.

If you're in downtown San Diego, look up Cafe 222. They've got the best breakfast I've found so far for about 10 bucks.
The view of downtown San Diego from the room wasn't bad.
I think this is the dude that did the frontside rodeo to axel stall. Schaefer gave him $20 for it, but then I charged him $20. Gross, buddy. Gross. Update: This is Tyler Martin. He says, "Have them correct that caption! Email them with my name! Jeah I'm not a lame rodeo guy."
Jereme Knibbs touches no coping on the frontside crail grab airs.

The FSEC (Former SPoT Employee Club) is worldwide. Member Jon Mann was on the ramp.

It was nice getting to see Donny Barley skate.

While all the skating was going on, right next to us was Volcom's booth. Their theme this year was Techno Beach. By the end of the session, you almost would catch yourself getting into the techno jams.
Oh, there was also skateboard bid'niss going on. That's Frosty and Justin Ryan from Skatepark of Tampa.
Mike Sinclair has probably seen one too many blunt nosegrabs.

Wow, look how nerdy Colin Clark's shoes are with rabbit ears that touch the ground.

That's Div and that backside crail is going to quick-fast disaster, Mike Frazier style.

Shawn Hale is the champ of backside noseblunts. Don't get tripped up on Colin's rabbit ears behind you.

Andrew Langi skates the stone like it's a normal lip.

The skateboard mind of Willy Akers thinks different. Click here for the sequence.
After the mini-ramp jam, these girls took over.
Hooters pants.
Watch out for the Jim Jam in the back, ladies. Check the footage for Jim Gray's dance moves, too.
Schaefer dubbed it the best ass in ASR.

Ryan Clements won some award at this office jockey contest where they hired Hooters girls.

Who's that nosegrinder wearing the X Games hat? Wow, it's Josh Kasper. Check the footage for Crossroad's $10,000 Best Trick coverage. I had to get out of here for a flight back home.

Colin Clark Footage: Volcom $10,000 Mini-Ramp Jam at ASR

$10,000 was handed out at the Volcom ASR Mini-Ramp Jam while the techno blased next to us all day.

Colin Clark Footage: Crossroads $10,000 Best Trick

A crazy rainbow ledge, a door gap quarter, and a kinked rail on a four-flat-seven set were at Crossroads where $10,000 was up for grabs for a Best Trick Contest that went down on each.

Chill Cam: Dance Party on the Mini Ramp and Other ASR Randoms

A bit of Crossroads and Clements' micro-mini skills, the crazy Techno Beach Party on the mini-ramp courtesy of Volcom with ringleader Brian Schaefer on the mic joined by Jim Gray and Skull Skates' Dave Hackett, teenie boppers taking the mic to holla at their favorite sk8rboi, hot girls ripping, Jake Phelps madness on the mic at Crossroads Best Trick, and Schaefer and I packing up and flying back home tonight to Tampa, but not before I try to sneak in a few bad trick attempts on the runway. I blame my cruiser board.

Chill Cam: Rolling Through San Diego for ASR

A brief skate through downtown, a bit of ASR, and DJ Wade's escalator trick that he taught Jereme Knibbs how to do.
