Barge for Barrow

Such an epic day! Got to OP at 10am to shovel, had it dry by 2pm. Kind of at a loss for words for that day-let the video speak for itself. Thanks so much to everyone who came out and supported!!

Barge For Barrow

If Bryan loved doing anything, it was skating OP for hours on end. So in his honor, we at Studio Skate Supply are putting on a memorial skate jam BBQ for him on Sunday, March 29th. Hot dogs hit the grill at 4, but come out whenever you can to shred in his honor. I'd also encourage you guys to attend his formal memorial on Saturday the 28th at 2pm at Hillcrest Covenant church.

Come and skate! Or just hang out! Free food!

Shredding for Bryan

Bryan's funeral was today, and it was one of the worst and hardest days of my life. It's hard to talk about and I don't want to say much, but I will miss him so much; I do everyday. Please try and make it to his memorial on Saturday, March 28th at 2pm at Hillcrest Covenant Church. I will be playing a video I made for Bryan-you won't want to miss out.

On another note, the day of Bryan's passing was also one of the hardest days of my (and others') life. You might think that skateboarding would be the last thing on everyone's mind. However, its really all we could do. I had plans to skate with Bryan that day-it was so nice out. He would have wanted to skate so bad, and we would have. So it only seemed proper for us to all skate in his name. It was really hard, but all the homies managed to seriously get down for Bryan.

R.I.P. Bryan Barrow-10/27/1991-3/14/2009

As you all may know by now, our good friend Bryan Barrow passed away late last night/early this morning in a car accident.

Bryan was the most caring, compassionate, and down-right gnarly dude I've ever met. He was the most selfless person I have ever been friends with-always caring of others before himself. He was always so down for everything-never complained at a spot, always wanted to skate anything. We just recently put him on Studio, which was going to be the start of everything. The Vans rep was going to be in town on April 1st, and we had planned to go out today to handle a few more things for his tape--which would have landed him on definate Vans flow. But God took him too soon from us.. and I won't be able to finish his sponsor tape for him, and he won't be able to get free shoes every month.. or have his finished part in the Studio video.

My deepest sympathies and compassion go out to the Barrow family. Erik, you too bro.

From me to you Bryan...

Bryan.. you have no idea how I'm feeling. I can't even put to words and express everything.. I miss you so much already bro, we had some damn good times, and you got a lot of amazing footage. Man I'll never forget that bail you took at that track flatbar.. you hit your face so gnarly! Worst bail I've ever filmed! I'd so much rather you have a busted up face right now than gone man.... You were supposed to throw hammers today man!! To get your tape ready for Vans! We had plans and everything... Not a day will go by that I don't think about you. I hope you heard what I said this morning in the hospital room man... Shit popped off at OP for you today-everyone was shredding for you, as will it tomorrow. I know you'll always be with us when we're skating. I love you bro, rest and skate in peace. No one will ever forget you, ever. Everything from here on out is dedicated to you.

When the Sun Goes Down..

Shit pops off!

Generally the best times at OP always happen at night. Can't wait for long summer nights just chilling at OP.
