I have a fractured bone in my hand. Its been about four weeks or so… I have been working mostly in Laguna Beach and I haven’t been home. I haven’t been skating. I haven’t been… right. This past week, I called a bunch of people and invited a crew over to the house for a Sunday session and BBQ. I bought a bunch of food and water for everyone. Sunday morning dawned dreary and the sky was spitting. I figured that we’d be just fine… Noon came. Lance, Josh Borden, Samwise, Cam Dowse, Chelsea Castro and Al Brunelle arrived. We warmed up and took some rides. More people began arriving. I’ve seen quite a number of people show up and proceed to get drunk at Ridiculous, but I never saw anyone show up already plastered. He fell into the pool. We had an interesting time with this fella… so did Smokey.
After these shenanigans, a few more people arrived. There were several people that had never had the chance to ride Ridiculous. The Rennie family showed up and Bill, Nate and Tristan raised the bar on the session. Joe came to visit via my old friend Jim Tesnar, Sarah, Nick & Skylar, Sonny, Brandon, Kyle, MRZ, Patrick Ryan, Tristan Adamson and friends from Laguna… it was crazy in the shallow end.
Patrick Ryan is silky smooth and threw down all day. Kyle Kaitanjian was Kyle. It is the only way he knows. I love watching him skate… when Kyle skates, don’t blink. Madness. Nick from Riverside was crushing it all day as well.
All in all… a beautiful and entertaining day. We had fun and a bunch of insane shredding went down. Good food, laughter, friends. That is exactly what it is all about. Thanks to the crew for coming. Thanks to MRZ for shooting the photographs and if Smokey’s new friend ever needs a helping hand, you know where I am. Skate- Ozzie
