The Spring 2012 HUF Quality Footwear Look Book just went up. Pretty happy with how everything turned out. Thanks to everyone who helped out.
Went on another mission last night trying to wrap up the Huf look book. Emilio, Luke, and McFeely came through and helped out. Thanks to everyone who helped out.
This is probably one the first skate updates in the last 2 months or so. I have been slacking/ over working. And I apologize. So enjoy this update. Who knows when you’ll see one again. Met up with Dan at Union today and ventured up to Harlem to meet up with everyone. The spot is pretty amazing, everyone was able to get a trick on it. No bust, so you can take all the time you need. Enjoy…
After months, possibly years of non stop nagging for freeze frames from JP Blair, he finally caved and gave me some. Enjoy a handful of screen grabs from JP’s upcoming skate video, “Untitled”. Theres no name for it yet, so Im just calling it “Untitled”. Its going to be worth the 6 year wait.
I couldn’t think of anything to post for today. So while looking through the archives, I came across a decent amount of Adrian Vega photos that were just collecting dust. He also happened to be online, so I just started having a conversation with him about whatever. And that has become the post. The photo above is still one of my favorite photos I’ve ever shot. Enjoy the rest of them which no one wanted to run. Thanks
Want to do an interview for the horns?, we shot a bunch of photos from a while ago, and Im not sure they’ll get used.

When you started skating, who were you the most hyped on?
Umm, I’d have to say my friend Connor. He had a shit ton of ramps and pvc pipe rails we would skate everyday
His brother in law skated so he would build shit and let us skate it all the time. cracking the PVC was the worst.

Met up with everyone at Autumn today, and headed downtown to rector street ledge. Had to get some sequences and stills of tricks that had already gone down, that I wasnt there for. Thinking it would not be to long, I didnt eat breakfast or lunch. Worst idea ever! We were stuck there till the sun was setting. Approximately 6 hours or more. In the end it was worth it, and also was able to get one last good day of sun.
Switch Front Board?
After getting out of work yesterday I headed over to the Vans DQM party with Emilio. While enjoying our free steak sandwiches and Belgium fries, we headed over to Stadium on Bowery. Quartersnacks was premiering their summer video, which was amazing, and Dre killed it, and wasnt even at the event. After that, I walked around for about an hour deciding what I should do with myself. And just before descending into the train station at Union, I felt it was necessary to go see the midnight showing of “Drive“. The Movie was unreal, and you should all go see it and all of its awkwardness. Its a must for this weekend.
After work yesterday I met up with Billy. Then cruised up to 23rd street to meet up with some other people to get some food. Eventually Dustin, Billy and I headed towards the train to go back downtown. Got out around Wall St, and once we got to the spot I just looked at it for a while and didnt believe that we were there. No one had skated this thing since Lennie Kirk, and for good reason. But I set up my flashes, and got to work. Good Job Billy!
