This week’s Tip Tuesday is “PURPOSE” because we all have one in life. We want to do what we want and make it our living to wake up everyday in happiness. I knew what my purpose was and it became my reality that I trip out about everyday. I look at it like this, a sun rises and sets and does what its meant to do and we are here for one reason which is to do what we put on earth for, which is do what you want. – S.M.
BELIVE and you will ACHIEVE

This week’s Music Monday goes out to Florence + The Machine with there song “SHAKE IT OUT”. I am the type of person to listen to one song for more then a month before I find another one that gets played over and over again. I really enjoy listening to a song until I feel its right to move on to the next one. What I am trying to say that this will be one of your favorite songs after you listen to it. - S.M.
Enjoy your week and make it a positive one.
Antonio Durao video part is completely mind blowing in it’s own way. I remember meeting Antonio at least 2 years ago when he message me on facebook about having used boards, but when i met him in person i gave him my pair of axion shoes right off my feet so he would be able to skate. The first trick in this part is a switch big heel down a 8 and his last trick was a switch front 3 down the west islip 9 stair. The fact that he is 15 years old with a lot of talent and a strong drive for skateboarding is one of a kind. - S.M.
“Keep pushing and never stop skating”
Complx skateboards comes through with their 2012 promo with so much heat. Enjoy what they are all about, and look out for the full Jake Dooley part. – S.M.

Home Sweet Home
Cody Mcentire’s Pool Grounds
Nate Legsdin ( Donkey )
Cody McEntire is a home sweet home for a man out of Belton, Texas. From country living to getting stuck at Whattaburger & Starbucks for internet, we spent a decent amount of time in Belton. We had to deal with another day to pass the rain, but it was awesome to finally get to see Cody’s house. Over the years I always got shit from him, “wait till you play on my pool table!” It’s damn true, Cody runs it. Thanks Cody and Claudette and their dog Cloey Ann for having us!
