Christian Potter visited with his wife Alison this past week. They flew in from the UK. We immediately had a super pool day out and everyone had a stellar time. Christian came to visit me about two years ago. On that visit, we rode Ridiculous pool, Gorilla pool, Malibu, Arto’s and Baldy among other things. When Christian returned to the UK, he built a bowl in a barn with some like-minded friends. They created their own scene. After riding several times a week in their bowl, Christian was more than ready to get into some pools and parks on this recent trip. Immediately, I saw a difference in his skating. He jumped into the shallow end and promptly handled business. He was grinding over the light and nabbed his first side ladder grinds as well.
There were a few days when I had to work and MRZ came up and took Christian and Alison around. They ended up in Bronson Canyon ditch, Etnies and Arto’s. I met them at Arto’s after work one day. BLKPRJKT came along and Jason Jesse showed up. We all rolled around trying new things. The day was bright and perfect. Happiness.
It was good to show our friends around Los Angeles. It is a place I love and call home. I’m always happy to share pools and stoke out my friends. Thanks for the visit Christian. Good to meet Alison as well. Until next time… Thank you to MRZ for the images. Skate and love your friends before it’s too late- Ozzie
