Ride Fast Take Chances

Winter is behind us and I'm VERY excited that summer is right in front of us. I've been loving my Crust bikes Clydesdale fork and all the super rad fun times it's enable for me so far this spring and over the course of winter. Kyle, Cam and I rode bikes to Medira Park on the sunshine coast for the 16th annual Attack of Danger Bay. Ching, Andrea and Gilbert kept us company till their destination of smugglers cove .

Multi-level car holes for everyone!



We went out on a Monday a bunch of weeks back and had fun turning wheels. There is a group of dedicated individuals that skate car holes every Thursday in Vancouver (show up with a board and helmet @ 9pm to the vancouver art gallery and I'm sure they'll show you around). Though the group's numbers and attendees have varied over the years, some things haven't changed. Security guards are there to keep us out. When you fall down, get back up. No cops no stops.

Last winter we ran into Sasquatch @SunPeaksResort. His subdeck helped inspire the this thing we made.

South Van Mini Board Throwdown 3



For the last 3 years I`ve thrown a mini board race on my birthday. Maybe you`ll be there next year.

It`s been some time

...since I`ve posted here. The original concept of this blog was to share the various incarnations of `the ride` that I enjoy. Politics seems to have derailed it like they do to everything. I won`t stop posting about the important things going on in the world, but I `ll try to keep it more `ride` focused. 'cuz the road goes on forever. And the party never ends.

Harper is working on his game...

And he doesn't give a damn about what scientists or killer whales have to say about things.
But I guess that's the way she goes when Enbridge is tattooed above your heart.

If I could have one thing for my Birthday?

I choose an end to human greed.

However, with our "govenment"  on the provincial level passing things like Bill 4 ... or the Candian Drug Policy Coallition (read: some asshats who obviously don't care about human dignity) fighting to "block the inclusion of life-saving harm reduction health strategies within future international drug policies" I don't really see that happening any time soon.Considering how incredibly successful harm reduction stratagies have been here in Vancouver at places like Insite and through other programs run by the PHS. It's not that somebody in power is sick of being shown up by this crew of compassionate individuals.... Want the real talk on what PHS is all about? Please read Ronnie's thoughts on the matter.

Oh ya, don't forget about what the provincial "government" has planned for the wolves...

And the Oscar goes to...

the right, under the boulder and out the other side. Oscar is a dog... not a silly waste of time and energy.
 Shout out to Marlon Brando for standing up for what he believes in, I'm sure him and the real Oscar would get along famously.

Deffinetly been neglecting...

... this blog. This could stem from the feeling that posting here is a waste not only of my time but also the resources that are being used to power the machines that house the data contained on this page. Even these words I type right now could be construed as pointless, so I'll do my best to make them count. Since I don't use facebook or a cell phone my data consumption is less than most, so maybe I shouldn't be so hung up on this. However, I just can't seem to shake the feeling that I'm not doing enough. Everything is connected and our own evolution might be our downfall but that doesn't mean we can't try to better the situation.So go play outside... It might be our only chance.

Keep Calm

Carry on?    F@*% that wartime propaganda! It's time to PANIC! Everyone needs to start running their mouths about the things they think are important. "Those who stand for nothing fall for anything." -Alexander Hamilton
Speaking of standing up: Thousands of people stood up for the Land on November 16th all across Canada. Is there any chance that creepy excuse for a leader heard what we're telling him? Would he even listen if he did? All eyes are on SWN resources while our illegitimate government to push it's agenda of socializing the risk while they privatize the profits.


Some peoples children won't stand by and allow this nonsense to continue. This Saturday there will be a fundraiser happening for the Warriors that the Crown, RCMP and corporate media are attempting to vilify and intimidate.


It's cold and there's snow on the mountains right now and although I'm very excited to start pushing snowflakes around, I can't seem to shake that yearning for summer beaches and warm weather.
These pictures of Grant Shilling and Kyle Martin were taken on Longbeach while enroute to Ahousat to share skateboarding with some of the youth of Flores island. Cool Storry Bro!
