that crew hype…

so, the other day we were just skating around with no agenda… having a mellow session… a couple clips were captured and things were productive… the days felt like it was winding down, but Grant remembered a spot i showed him a few days earlier… with little ambition or expectations to skate the spot (since it was at a house), we headed to it…

we gave it a hard look and figured “fuck it, just ollie it real quick and we will ghost outta here…” Grant gets all fired up after he ollies it… he figured that he’d keep skating it until we got the boot… he lands back 180 and i start getting pumped… i was behind the camera and started thinking about tricks to try…

we usually don’t jump down anything… we never flip our boards even down a curb… age and beer takes that outta you… not on this day! Grant, who hadn’t jumped down anything in awhile, starts flippin’ his board and landing stuff… he was psyched on the spot and that we hadn’t gotten kicked out… he came away with a pop shuv and heelflip… i was inspired.

watching him make this spot a reality to our crew was dope… everyone knows how we skate and maybe this spot will change our perception of what we are capable of… i don’t think Grant knows or cares that he inspired me (and maybe Brian), but he did… the combination of myself recently jumping down a drop, not getting hurt doing it, and seeing Grant’s motivation/crushing was cool… footage tomorrow…

i guess the moral of the story is that you never know who you will inspire when you skate, so skate hard…

peace and noLove
