Ham'n it up in the sunset, with my Dad!

My Dad is the greatest! If ya don't believe me... just ask my boys! We don't get to see papa as often as we would like... so we make the most of the time that we get. I dragged out my light kit and and convinced the family to humor me with a few poses. We did a few standard family shots and then my Dad and I decided to have some fun.

We're on vacation!

Gear up!


Feed the beast!

The fam is ready!

Cute (prego) girl sighting at a rest area!!!

We hired professional house sitters and my N.R.A. card carrying neighbor has orders to watch the perimeter so don't even think of trying to sneak in a session on my ramp while I am gone (P, you and Andrea can ride but no one else).

We (rather impulsively) decided to bust loose! We are headed West and we're not going to stop until we get to the Pacific Ocean! The older you get the harder it is to "Just do it". Maybe its fear, maybe it's lack of motivation either way we are crushing complacency and surfing adventure!

Kvon's New vert model

I like a little customization when it comes to my passions! Someday I will learn the art of screen printing but for now I am doing one off customs that feature hand cut graphics on masking tape. Primitive but fun. Here is my new setup: 8.25 mini logo custom spray paint, Indy 149's(?), 60mm Bones spf concrete lovers, thin ribs and for now, china red bearings (I have swiss 6 balls on the way)

Vert is dead..

So it has been said... Vert is dead... "There's no money in it." does that make it dead? The skate companies may be wrapped up in marketing strategies and styles of the 90's but there is an movement on the horizon. I say if vert is dead it's because we killed it today! So get out there and do your part. Vert is dead? KILL IT DAILY!

Have a laugh at my expense!

Seth stopped by a while back to try out his camera. I took the time to wipe all the water off of my shoes but little did I know that the lawn sprinklers had left a nasty wet spot on the west transition. Wet masonite and urethane don't mix, have a laugh at my expense!

Working on it. #2 051209

Late grab and Sab plant.

Sad plant. I don't know if I am doing this right. Sad plant is a regular invert with a strait front leg to tweak some style into it. I am working to extend it up and stall it out... then tweak it out. This is where I am at... I am working on it!

I have been throwing backside airs for over twenty years but they have been (for the most part) "early grab". Early grab is an easy way to learn but is very limiting when it comes to boosting hight. I have been working on the late grab. It is coming along. I am working on it. Here is a make.

Big D and A9

I love this time of year! D is doing very well. He is dropping in. I still give him a little help, he could do it on his own if I wasn't so scared.

D reached his reading goal!

The deal was that if D memorized all the flash cards he could have a lego star wars AT-ST as a reward! Well, he did it.. I was very meticulous and did not let anything slide. D nailed it! Congrats D!
