90’s Hickory days... thinking about @mid90smovie

World / Deca days, the good old days 💭
Feels like Christmas🎄at the office!
Got some of these custom made on my 7.75 shape.... set for a good wile on boards 😬
I known @skybrown
for a few years now, seen lots of footage of her ripping on mini ramps and rapidly progressing during those years... but this was the first time I when out with her to film for an amazing project with @almostskateboards
She wanted to start the project doing something big, going out with a 9 years old on a rainy day I didn’t know what to expect... we ended up at this massive 12 stairs by my house in Fullerton, I was personally chuck after the first few slam and tried talking her out of it but she was so personally determined on not giving up and rolling away... I saw on her that thing we as skaters have that’s hard to describe but burns deep on us and from that moment forward I stop seeing her as a 9 years old girl, I saw her as a legit skater making it easier to film her battle this 12 stairs... the only tear she shed was when we where getting kicked out.... 9am the next day she was back at it, with a bruise bottom that reminded me at the gnarly one @cairofoster
got some years back... she didn’t skip a beat, or complained about pain, she just went and handled it... I’m so proud of her, keep that 🔥 burning Sky ❤️
VHS days, my section in the Deca “Sneak Preview” video 😅
Oh how I treasure these days and everyone involved ❤️
The last clip was during a Deca VS Black Label tour in OZ, I remember drinking a Guinness, someone was trying something over that bar and I herd a comment that tick me off, I put my beer down and went at it just to prove a point, stoked I rolled away on that dirt road 😂
Thanks for finding & posting this @skate_vcr
Found this random clip of back to back sketchy tricks with the brother @daewon1song
one late night having fun around El Segundo many moons ago 😂
Thanks for filming this @djrunaway
Little clip I put together of our wood shop, I have been fortunate enough to have been first hand involved in the manufacturing and development of new ways of making skateboards, shapes, and forward ways of printing for over 20 years now. Had amazing mentors in this area, from Scotty Jensen to Rodney Mullen. I was groomed to have extremely high standards from these guys and because of it my expectations are as high now and I can’t be more proud to be involved with this Woodshop and my family that ride the boards it makes... no other Woodshop that I know imports logs and pioneered a way to treat them, veneer them and have the temperature controlled rooms necessary to keep an unprecedented quality from the forest till the boards we all ride... it wasn’t always easy, the first year teach us a lot about how to manage the veneers so they don’t turn into a soggy sponge, and pioneering a 2 part resin glue change the game in the possibilities of how to make a thinner, lighter board that won’t warp under extreme temperatures changes as easy... a bit hurtle with water base glue... anyway, stopping the preaching, just reflecting on how rad it’s been this last 20 plus years on this other part of my life.

I call it true passion for what you do, expecting nothing less than the very best of yourself.
Blessed to be surrounded by it! @younessamrani
