Dog Days of Summer

These 90+ degree days have been wearing on me. Just standing outside sucks the energy and motivation straight out of me. Skating has now become a chore. Even filming sucks. These clips were from last weekend. It had been raining on and off all day, and the sun finally came out. With that rain came so much humidity it was barely tolerable. My shirt was instantly soaked. I'm tired of Kansas' summer already-all over again. Can't wait to be in Milwaukee for the 4th of July weekend!

We started Josh's blog minute at Grandview and only came up with the first warm up clip before it started pouring. The new Lees Summit park is my new favorite worst park. You won't be seeing me there again unless I have to. But Josh and Kevin killed it!

Go Skate Day '09

Etnies KC Go Skateboarding Day '09 from Ride4Ever/StudioSkate-Brian Ondr on Vimeo. Sheckler! etnies dudes that showed up: Malto, Mikey Taylor (lurked), Kyle Leeper (lurked), Jose Rojo, Devine Calloway (lurked), and Davis Torgerson.

Lots of beer, sun, and fun. I did my best-sorry if I missed something tight! The clips pretty much go in order of the day-8am to 6pm. Contest to contest, etc etc.

Thanks to everyone who came out and made the day the sickest GSD KC has ever seen! I hope next year can be 10x as epic.

Battle of the Boxes

Wow, its been a while. Its been a turbulent and bittersweet past few weeks. Some hard times and some good times, but nonetheless, I'm back on the grind now.

Thanks to everyone who came out on Saturday to the Battle. Anders helped me out with some longlens on this.
