As some of you may know… Portland, and the Northwest in general is notorious for having terrible weather and its about that time of year again when it just starts dumping rain! Magically, however, we had one day of blue bird skies… so Alex Tongue, Robin McGuirk, and myself went out to get some photos and take advantage of this gift from the Heavens. Peep the shots.

Sure enough, the rain picked back up where it left off… so I hit up my buddy Zach Boston out in Gresham to check out a garage he knows. It was kind of wet so we ended up seshing the most dry spot. I saw a million and ten people walking through but not one person got mad and told us to take off. It was actually pretty sick. Mellow and chill and we got to do whatever we wanted. I would like to skate the whole thing when its dry. Here are some shots!
Zach Boston… I was screwing around with my flashes for fun lol
SOOOO FINALLY Alex And Robin are back in town and were able to do 30 minute ultra quick photoshoot for the new rocky bomber. Expect more in the future! We had a 30 minute period to work with today and got a couple good ones! Check the Eastside Longboards Rocky Bomber out online here!
So today my wife and I went out and did a little skating, she got some photos of me! We had never been here but I saw a hill in the distance by my house, drove towards it, and then saw this super nice housing development that wasnt complete built into a super steep hill. The streets are perfect for freeriding and I will get some shots there later. BUT I just wanted to check out some of the corners it had, definitely had some tight ones… so i found this one that wasnt too busy (none of them really were) and we took some pics of me messing around going around it!

This setup is super fun
Turns out that the “ultimate grip” race wheel from cult, the Gamma ray in the Horrotica thane slides super good. And by super good I mean kind of chattery but really easy for me to control and predict. Then I put blood oranges from my calibers in some randal 42’s and of course it is on the new eastside rocky bomber. Sick board with some sick shape!
