Dallas

picked up adam @ 7 am saturday to drive up to dallas, and hang out with Oliver. Skated some stuff and had some fun hangin out with new people. Got to meet Comer, and Crum... i was stoked to see that those dudes i looked up to in middle school During the Dark days of vert in the 90's are not only killer skaters, but down to earth cool people.

we also got to skate this killer back yard ramp on saturday. it was 24 wide, two death boxes, a channel, an extension, and on over vert extension, not to mention 3 different types of pool coping and tile. there was this kid named Gary from OKC that was killing it. there was a keg and a back yard ramp...its what i imagined its was like in the 80s. We had a blast, thanks Pickle!.

Gary from okc with a method. the dude has a million tricks



Adam wiggins Frontside Airs over the Box



A long time ago Oliver Jumped the English Channel to live in a skatepark. here he recreates it. Ollie ollies the channel in a Dallas back yard.




The next day we checked out this contest at Irving called the Concrete Rodeo. $25 entry fee and a questionable format...we had our doubts, and well it turned out as good as a contest sponsored by hair gel companies and snow bros could. it was skateboarding so we still managed to have some fun, and freaky G and Jeremy the Kid Sensation showed up. he boneless oned over people's heads to a 1st place victory in the 15/16 age group. Adam took a close 2nd in the same age group. Oliver took 2nd in the 27+ group. and i took 3rd in the 19-26 age group.

the "finals" for the overall champ was maybe one of the dumbest contest formats i have ever seen, and it showed in the results. My feelings are that Gary from OKC Should have taken it home. Oh well. Adam managed to over come the strange format and take 3rd over all.

Gary Morris does rip that is why he is riding for Embassy and going to X-Games at the end of July then on up to the Oregon Trifecta at the beginning of August with team rider Ben Johnson who also rips and got first overall at the Irving hair gel contest. Another road trip for the Embassy crew at the world cup. But you know that is how we roll. Hope to see yall there lets put Texas on the map. Ride with Pride, and much love, Nate.
