JB, sorry for the delay on the reply mate. No excuses, I'm useless!
- So you are showing Dani around eh? Good times, bet he's frothing about Maryhill. What a dude, repping the Aussie's big time.
Met him skating the Snowies and he seemed very cool, down to earth.
- What a spin out that he's rolling with you.
Speaking of which, I read somewhere that you are signed up for the push race at Cathlamet - pretty much in the bag hey buddy..! Clearing a spot on the shelf for the trophy..? - After all, you are the king of the long distance push. - Ha! No pressure!
In other news, i just posted up a new vid and its rad. People are already diggin' it and I'm stoked. - Should see some of the skating thats been going down... - Blackwood has been ripping.
Anyway, if you get a chance check the vid. Called it Brother man.
- Should also mention that Blackwood is the proud owner of a half pipe in his back yard. Its mad. So sick. When you get home we will have to get together with the squad and have a BBQ and a few beers round his joint. - What do you reckon?
Also, you have got me thinking about this Shopping list, so if I have any spare change after purchasing NJK's (Ordering asap. Can't wait!) I'll let you know! - Thanks for putting that offer out there too, i love sweet hook ups.
Righto, my fingers are tired. I'm out of here. Hit me back and let me know what's cracking with work and shit and all that stuff.
Oh yeah, Slalom and Push race report would be good too..!
Hey mate! - Sorry don't check my page that much so i only just spied your msg. How things? I've been meaning to try and contact you and check how you settled in over there. You been shredding the concrete? Or too busy making millions..? Haa ha!
Anyway, about the knee... i joined Jacko and Blackwood for a roll in Seaforth, over the north side. Hit up a corner session on a rough, but nice little right hand bend... first run and bam! - Slid out and ended up hitting my knee cap on the edge of the gutter. Knee Pad pulled down. It was terrible.
I had skated the spot with Jacko and Luca the weekend before, the only problem was this time i was on a new set up and i just didn't take that into consideration (Evo + Smokies + worn out O'tangs). From there it was a trip to Manly Hospital and then on to recovery mode. Otherwise known as time on the couch. Sucked big time.
Still cant skate now and it happened ages ago. I don't reckon i'll be on the board for a long time. Bought some huge knee pads which cost as much as a nice deck ($250) to try and get some confidence back but its the little things like footbreaking and sliding that put heaps of pressure on it. Tried to skate the other day and didn't get further than the driveway! Just going to have to be patient.
Anyway, have to get back to me and let me know how you are going and when you will be back for a visit... i'll get you to bring some JimZ trucks back for me!
