Monday Cover Vol. 3 Issue 22 - Mike Swim

You may have noticed the Roto-Post widget along the right-hand side of the page. It’s purpose is to display a random Earth Patrol post; a little slice of serendipity if you will. Anyway, a post featuring Mike Swim came up and the image was so compelling, we chose to use it as this week’s Monday Cover. Check out a few more images of Mike shredding along with a photo gallery after the turn.

Congratulations Mike!

Be Like Mike

Mike Swim - FS Lien @ Pier

Back in the 80’s you might have heard the phrase “Be Like Mike.” We are reviving the phrase for this week’s Monday Cover featuring Mike Swim. This guy rips from session start to session end and reportedly owns a mint pair of tuff-skins. If you get a chance to see Mike skate, you will understand why you might want to “be like Mike.”

Congratulations Mike on another cover.

Footnote: If you are looking for new shoes and want to help with the effort to build more skate parks, consider the Vox – Dreamland shoe. Mike is wearing a pair in this photo. A portion of each shoe sale goes directly to building more skate parks.

Swim in a Big Pool

Mike Swim - FS Grind @ Pier

Today’s Monday Cover goes to Mike Swim. On any skateable day at Pier, there’s a good chance you will see Mike tearin’ it up. He has some of the ‘styliest’ backside Smiths and just style in general. It’s great that Mike has chosen to be a part of the Dreamland crew; skaters building skateparks for skaters. How poetic is that? My money is still on Mike to be the first person to carve backside over the door.

Congratulations Mike and Thanks!

Swami Sessions are a Go!

Check out more pics of Mike surfing Pier after the turn.

Congratulations Mike!

Emeralds and Roses

Monday Cover Vol. 2 Issue 49 - Morris Wainwright

This week’s Monday Cover skater, Morris Wainwright, lofts an ollie in the deep at Pier Park. Morris made the three hour trip from Seattle to Portland to session with the locals. It’s obvious after watching Morris skate with Mike Swim, that there is a West Seattle style, so smooth. Check out some more pics of Morris getting his shred on after the turn.
