609: DANGER!

Jason,
Just wanted to wish you well with the show… I bet that you’ve
been quite busy preparing! Things here are finally cooling a bit, and the
skating is heating up. We’ve been hitting up some parks and will be going downhill tomorrow! It’s such a stoker— There has also been some improvements made to an existing park which was a drag, and now flows 100x better– it flows almost like Reading did. I’m being real generous comparing anything to one of my all time favorite spots! It really is fun though. I also received word on the Cherry Hill TG deck– It is available at Socal Skateshop or Big Block Distribution. It is a dream come true for me as it completes the circle by returning to my roots,while paying tribute to a park that I owe so much to. Again, have a GREAT show, and please post some photos!

All the best,

TG

too cool…you get what you give, someone emailed me that recently.

cheers Tom and congrats on the board

608: If you don’t get to name it – can you own it?

We named this place ‘The Barn’:

This place was named ‘The Slug Ramp’ – first thing in the morning it was covered in Slugs:

This was ‘The Girl Ramp’ -evertime we arrived there were girls sitting near the flat, jawboning. Even though it has Dagnasty written across one wall it was still ‘The Girl Ramp’, Dagnasty was someone elses’s name for it:

This was ‘The Erasure Ramp’ because when Rick Charnoski showed up  that was the music they were playing, it could have just as easily been named ‘The Skinny Puppy Ramp’:

This is Rick Charnoski, we call him ‘SteamBoat’ if you ever skate with him you will know why:

Here is a ‘Captain’:

Here is a ‘Moose’:

This is a ‘Geeeee- ahf’:

We all have named this guy ‘Mike V’….. I like to call him that because I feel he stokes you five times more then any other skater today (that is a roman numeral joke by the way):

This guy had more names then I can list, and when he played guitar he used less pedals then a bicycle:

Growing up the jocks called him ‘Pee Wee’. His Brutha’s called him Wee Pee, Weeper, Weeps, King Weeps. I liked to call him WeepStarr because of GangStarr. His brother is ‘Sketch’ and we were all Sketch’s Brethies. Weep is riding the ’78 Ditch’ someone found it and  we called it that because we wanted people to find it and join us:

Weep

This is the ‘Kink Sink’:

If you did’nt find it, build it, or invent it can you name it and claim you own it? What will you call the things that are just handed out? This park was built to help keep the kids off of the war torn streets of Princeton NJ:

What happens when it is taken away? If you built it, found it or invented it…..why worry?  You have what it takes to start from scratch – to build or find something new…..

You are all my Brutics – that is the word  that appears when you  try to text the word Bruthas using auto spell on a cel phone.

Look around,

602: 2nd Annual History of East Coast Skate Summit: Jeffrey “Earth Surfer” Turko

Jeffrey Turko and Jason Oliva London 2010

Like This!

I had time to squeeze in the 2nd Annual History of East Coast Skate Summit (You may recall the first) Rest assure that myself and former “Earth Surfer” proprietor and Architect  extraordinaire Jeffrey Turko spent the afternoon setting the world to rights…so no more worries, all is well. Looks like I might have skipped a year there but it was almost 2009 when I had the first pow-wow.

See you in NYC “The Green, Green, Grass of Home”
