Monday Night Session

 

After work today I met up with a few friends at the Vans park for my usual Monday night session.

Another Trick Down

 

Ana Paula picked up Lacey and a friend on her way to met up with me in Garden Grove.  I was really
impressed with her footwear choice for the day.

 

 

Lacey warming up.

 

 

Smile on her face after getting the trick we came to shoot/film within a few tries.  Good stuff!
 

 

We stopped by one more spot on the way back and called it an early day so Lacey could make it home
in time to have Easter diner with her family.

Filming With Abisha

 

I met Abisha and her friend Bryce at Garden Grove High.  We decided it would be better to warm up on
a ledge spot down the street rather than starting the day off jumping down stairs.

 

 

Abisha filmed a few lines.  She's pretty big time these days and travels around with 2 filmers.  Ha!

 

 

Monique lives right down the street and met up with us.  We skated this spot together 10+ years ago.

 

 

Next we went to check out a plane replica in a park that has been skated in a few videos.  You can
skate the wing as a bank or do wall rides.  Unfortunately the park was under construction and there was
a fence around it.  After a quick session we drove around checking out a few more spots with no luck
and called it a day after the sun went down.

LA with Lauren and Ana Paula

 

Lauren and I met up in Orange County, then drove out to LA to spend some time with Ana Paula who
has been a little lonely since Leticia went back to Brazil to visit family for a couple weeks.

 

 

We tried the Griffith Park ditch again, but most of it was still covered in mud and water.

 

 

Lauren warmed up on a little gap across the way.  If it didn't have the big crack, rough surface and land
into dirt it could be a fun spot.

 

 

I talked to Amy this morning and she told me about a new iphone application called iskateboard which
is a mobile skate spot directory.  So I downloaded it and we spent part of the day checking a few of
them out.  Amy couldn't join us today because she had "homework" to do.

 

 

Doesn't your school have skateboard lockers?

 

 

Or a mural like this?

 

 

Spot checking.

 

 

Filming a line for the blog.

 

 

The Wilshire rails have been knobbed and de-knobbed so many times that actual chunks of the rail are
missing now.

 

 

So they found a new way to skate proof the famous rails.

Arizona Ditch Day

 

We stayed the night in San Carlos after the Apache Skateblast and woke up early Sunday morning so
we could squeezing in as much skating as we could in Phoenix on the way back.  We only made it
about 2 minutes west of our hotel before pulling over to check out a ditch on the side of the road.

 

 

Leticia got a few tricks by 9:00 a.m.

 

 

Lisa, Monique, Monica, Abisha, Leticia, Patricia and Ana Paula.

 

 

The quick spot check turned into a couple hour session.

 

 

After food and a 2 hour drive we finally arrived in Phoenix mid afternoon.  Monique and our Az tour guide
Carli.

 

 

I had always wanted to go to this spot, but now that I've been I can say that videos and photos of this
place do not give it justice.  Leticia was killing the bank side and learned a new trick.

 

 

Abisha got a few things as well and has officially started filming for her part in "That's Blogable!".

 

 

Monica 5-0.  We skated the banks until everyone was too tired to continue. The lack of sleep and
amount of skating was catching up to us and we still had a 4+ hour drive ahead of us.  After Leticia got
one last sequence the Brazilians started their drive home while we stopped by the Thunderbird park for a
quick session before getting on the road shortly behind them.

P.S. - Losing battery power to an anti-theft radio and not knowing the code to reboot it before leaving on
a road trip is not advised.  :(
