It’s always nice to get the kids hyped, but when you make there day it’s an amazing feeling. I skated these Mandelas for like 20 min then hooked him up.

When best tricks go down people break boards, I had to hook him up with the board because not only did he break his nose on a nollie hard flip down the set but he ran back up and broke his tail on the next try as he skated away.

Sunday was our last stop, Hanford was probably my favorite. Didnt get alot of pics because I was skating all day, it was so much fun. Luckily Spanish Mike took this pic of everyone. Thanks FRC and kevin for making this a good day.

Tip Tuesday: “successful”

Today has been a productive one on this trip, so I dedicate this week’s Tip Tuesday to be “successful”. The day went like any other but was just a little different. The crew planned on checking out this ditch spot but was not planning on skating it, so manny grab his board to check it out. The next thing you know a couple try’s later manny landed the trick that he planned out in his head while riding away successfully with another trick for the tour video. – S.M.
