Matt Costa at Union Station

 

The girls were lagging this morning, so Ana Paula and I took the opportunity to go visit an old friend who
was playing at Union Station.

 

 

Matt Costa's live performances are always great.

 

 

On the way back to Ana Paula's car we stopped by the Alameda ledges to see if the rumors were true.  
Sad sight.

Tickets For All

 

The Skate Plaza seems to be the new meeting spot.   Evelien was already warmed up when I got there.

 

 

When we arrived at the first spot the Blind team was already there filming along with a 13 year old local
kid.  Evelien got her trick within a couple tries and was working on another just as the school police
showed up.  We were informed that we were in the middle of several gang territories and it wasn't safe
for us to be there, especially with camera gear.  

 

 

The minors parents were called and had to be released to an adult, luckily Lacey was allowed to leave
with me.  The 13 year old kid wasn't as lucky.  His Mom had to come down to the school to pick him up.  
We all watched in horror as one of the officers placed the boy's board up against his back tire, got in the
car and ran over it per his Mothers request. The sight of him standing to the side with tears in his eyes
almost made Evelien started crying. 

 

 

A little over an hour later we all had tickets, except for Evelien who used her Belgian charms to walk
away clean.

Want To Play Me Skate?

 

The second the girls rolled into the plaza today they were challenged to multiple games of s.k.a.t.e. and 
bombarded with 20 questions.  "Are you sponsored?", "How many stairs can you ollie?", "Can you do a
hardflip?", "Can you skate the rail?"  ...Evelien answered one of the questions with a frontboard.

 

 

Abisha getting in a frontside 5-0 between the constant questioning.

 

 

Evelien Bouilliart.

 

 

Yes, Abisha can varial flip and 360 flip the stairs.

 

 

Evelien is up for the kickflip challenge.

 

 

On the way to the car we ran into Yesi who was really excited to see us.  She said she had never seen
other girls skate before.  We invited her to the next spot with us and got her to film a couple tricks for
the blog.

 

 

Ana Paula, Yesi, Abisha and Evelien at the spot.

 

 

Afterwards we went to the Ellington's for lunch with friends.  Liza from Check It Out magazine was
talked into taking a couple runs on the mini ramp even though she wasn't dressed for the occasion.

 

 

Patiane joined in as well.

 

 

Fun afternoon with friends.

 

 

Abisha's 19th birthday is tomorrow, so we surprised her with some cupcakes.

 

 

Seconds later they were getting smashed in faces.

 

 

Thanks for having us over Luci!

 

 

Evelien and baby Mya.

Mellow Day at the Park

 

Brazilians striking a pose at the skate plaza...again.

 

 

Monica and Patiane decided to skip the skate session and go surfing instead.  Monica was so eager 
she started catching imaginary waves in the dirt. 

 

 

We didn't want to deal with getting kicked out of any spots, so we all agreed on a fun day at the park.  
Leticia backside 5-0.

 

 

Evelien boardslide.

 

 

Abisha backside 50-50.

Lunch With Friends

 

Evelien and Micaela had a meeting with etnies today regarding the upcoming Poseiden Mexico Tour
they are doing in June.  Their meeting was ending just about my lunch time and there was talk of
skating afterward so I planned to meet them for a quick session.

 

 

We planned on meeting Lauren at the park, but ended up taking longer than expected and missed her.

 

 

Everyone was hungry and I was short on time, so we just had lunch instead.
