Crailtap's been posting clips of the Girl team in Sac the last few days. Sort of eerie that I live in this town and could have crossed paths. I think I was going to go to this spot the day before they aired the first one. I have no idea where the spot is for the second clip, but the third  one is this crusty old bank that is kind of fun to goof around on. Would be perfect but there are chunks in the ground before the run up and I have done exactly what Omar Salazar does as he's riding up before.  The latest one  (clip five) is at this spot where we take a box and skate sometimes because it's covered, (it rains quite a bit in Sac over the winter), and I was really surprised to see it on here. That ledge they are skating used to have a piece of that fiberglass stuff they have at skateparks so it didn't grind that well. I'm going to have to go back there and take a look if someone put a metal edge on it....  Anyway, just interesting to see that such good ska

First come, first served..

Well..I got screwed. I had a post all lined up with Rick Howard and Mike Carroll photos then I happened to check  The Chrome Ball Incident and they have a full interview up with the MC photo I was going to use. Bummer. I think I'll put it up anyway as I don't see the Rick one on there but I thought it would be tacky to put up the same photo on the same day. Instead, here is some old stuff of  Sac-Town local, John Cardiel..   I still think this bottom photo is amazing. Dude must have been flying to get over the box.. 

Work in progress..

. Still trying to figure out what I want this thing to look like.   In the meantime, here's some Rob Dyrdek

More Frank..

Just a couple more random shots of Frankie. This second one was from a promotion that Powell had around the time Ban This was coming out.. Old Thrasher Flick:  ....and lo and behold, some new shit;  Glad to see this guy is still on board, killing it. 

Uh, yeah. It's Friday.

Was trying to come up with something good after the last post...kind of hard to top a Frank Hill interview...then I just decided that I really like this photo;  I have no idea what happened to Eric Ricks after Powell but I always thought he was underrated.  By the way, got the new Thunder Titanium Light Low Trucks and holy hell....after riding Indy's for years I am completely blown away at how good these trucks feel and how light they are..
