I Started skating as a youngster around 91-92. Left the game for a while, but jumped back on the board years later after missing the little things like the feeling of just rolling on smooth flat ground and kicking the board around with the homies. I always had the "you don't have to be good at something to like it" mentality to keep me going, and I love skateboarding. I just suck at it.

As far as the blog...Being on a skateboard with that mentality you will never look at the streets the same. You will always see something and think "Man, that would be sick if someone could....". So any time me and my skate buddy's see one of those spots in and around L.A./O.C., or maybe a nice spot we may have skated we take a snapshot of it so you know its out there, and anyone who can...Get Some!

Recuerdo



Looking at this takes me right to Video Days. Then that takes me back to a time when I loved everything about the skateboarding scene. You know, when you actually knew who anyone with a board in your area was. Even if you didn't know them personally you still knew their name, or who they skated with. Ah, the good Ol days.

Ground Round Bar




Another spot I came accross just cruzin around. This looks like it would be pretty. The bar is about knee high from the sidewalk and the ground is rough, but looks bareable if you had some bigger wheels. This was also in the parking lot of a empty building.

Uphill Battle




Heavy Traffic on my way home today so I tried to take a little short cut. Just as I was turning the corner I seen this uphill (or downhill) ledge poking out. Pretty high on the up side, but crazy looking so I thought Id take a couple pics. Looks like there is a bit of wax on it too.
