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.

Sun Peaks Snowskate Sasquatch Encounter!

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.

Good times with good friends. It's awesome to love those you work with.

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!

Uh oh

Shit's going downhill fast around here.... Chairman Harper just signed the Comprehensive European Economic Trade Agreement (CETA) and the potential ramifications are devastating. Don't you find it strange that we haven't been consulted on this? In other news our domestic armed forces (aka. the RCMP) got a chance to use their sweet camouflage outfits and assault rifles in order to serve a court injunction . An injunction that was sought by a private corporation... ... in order to continue fracking exploration in the backyard of the Mi'kmaq people.

Too bad they didn't use our tax dollars to buy some more appropriately hued camo colours... think autumn chuckle heads.
 The potential hazard to the water table is a risk the Mi'kmaq and Elsipogtog are not willing to take. So stand in solidarity with them... because if you don't stand for something, you'll fall for anything.

Those unnecessary plastics...

MIDWAY a Message from the Gyre : a short film by Chris Jordan from Midway on Vimeo.
and our inability to properly dispose of our trash will be the death of us all.

Following in others footsteps

Is sometimes the only way to get where you're going. Especially when there's a sheer drop down into the clouds on your left...
and a solid tumble onto sunny boulders on your right.
Be sure to look around and enjoy the view because you might not be back this way for some time

and when you do, things might not be the same.
So take a minute to run your fingers through the moss and enjoy those perfect moments while they last.
