Slaying It

Tyler Martin Slays Tigard

Living in the Northwest has its perks and no where on the planet is there such a high concentration of gnar-crete; thanks to Dreamland, Grindline, Airspeed, PTR and all the concrete DIY’ers. Taking full advantage of the great terrain is Tyler Martin. Check out Tyler taking on Tigard, Battle Ground and Grants Pass in this week’s edition of Foto-Friday.

Robots, Pumps and Pearls

YouTube Tuesday November 25, 2008

Better yet, take the day off and go skate after checking out this week’s YouTube Tuesday selections. Now what the heck do you call that last move at the end of the video titled An October Weekend. You tell us. All the action after the turn.

Congratulations Steve!

Bing, Bang, Bonk!

Taylor Bingaman @ Battle Ground

Bing is for Creature shredder, Taylor Bingaman. Bang is for this sick back-tail at Battle Ground prior to Trifecta weekend.

Quantum of Skate Solace

Tom’s Weatherized Ramp

If you know the story about the cricket and the ant, then you know that Tom, the owner of this ramp, is an ant. Tom’s ramp is now weatherized and ready for the ants to skate; sorry crickets. That’s one nice ramp and weather enclosure, when’s the session? See more of Tom’s photos over at the Earth Patrol Network.
