Arizona Day 3-5

 

On Friday we picked up my friend Carli in Phoenix and made the 2 hour drive out to Sedona to skate
the park and get some other shots with the amazing scenery.  Lacey and Amy had some good doubles
lines going.

After the park we drove around searching for a hill to bomb with the Sedona mountains in the background.  
Tiffany got a long lens shot of all the girls coming down the hill, then we decided to sit in the back of the
van and film with a fisheye as the girls followed behind us.  Lacey was looking pretty stylish doing speed
checks until one of her wheels caught on the rough asphalt and pitched her forward onto her hip.

Saturday morning we warmed up at new park in North Scottsdale.  Letica frontside 180 over hip.

 

 

Afterwards Carli and her friends meet up and took us to a church that sets up obstacles and lets the
kids skate every Saturday.  It was pretty crowded and looked fun to skate, but not anything we wanted
to film.  A few of the girls walked around the building and found a rock gap with nobody around, so we
decided to film there.  As soon as we set up and the girls started skating a bunch of the kids followed
over and started hucking themselves.  Lacey switch 180 with ease.

 

 

Footy check.

Afterwards we skated the Cactus banks until the sun went down.  The next morning Stefanie, Evelien,
Elizabeth and I joined the crew for one last session at the Peoria park before we had to get on the road
to get home in time for work and Evelien's flight home to Belgium the next day.

Arizona Day 1 & 2

 

Tiffany from Villa Villa Cola is making a surf film called "Dear & Yonder" and wanted to include a skate
segment, so we scheduled a road trip to Arizona with 11 girls to skate, film and have fun.  We all left
from different locations Wednesday morning and met up at our hotel later that evening.  I picked up
Lacey that morning in Covina and made a quick stop by her local skate shop Utility to check out the
new etnies window display.

 

 

About an hour into our drive we meet up with Erica Harris's van load of girls.  She started out early by
picking up Evelien Bouilliart and Leticia Bufoni in Los Angeles, then stopped by Long Beach to pick up
Amy Caron and Stefanie Thomas before heading out.

 

 

Once we got to the Phoenix area Lacey and I split off again and went to the airport to pick up Alex
White and Elizabeth Nitu who both flew in from the San Fransisco area. Shortly after we arrived at the
hotel film producers Tiffany Morgan Campbell and Andrea Lessier pulled up from their drive that started
from San Diego this morning.  The timing worked out well and everyone was eager to go skating the
next morning.

The next morning we started out with breakfast at Coney Island Cafe.

 

 

Then we hit up the Wedge Skatepark.

 

 

Elissa Steamer's new Zero board is out now.  Go get one!

 

 

We got direction to a water park that is closed for the season and has a bunch of tranny walls in the
wave pool that get skated every winter.  Unfortunately there were puddles in the best spots, but
everyone still had a good time before getting kicked out.

 

 

The girls only got a couple minutes at this gap before getting kicked out as well.

The Tempe Skatepark was amazing.  We ended up skating there for hours and we got a bunch of
footage.

Day in LA with Blog Cam

 

Amy, Evelien, Stefanie and I cruised around LA today with no specific plan.  We check out a few spots
downtown then ended up skating a nearby school yard.

 

 

 

Afterward we headed to a foundation spot that Amy knew of with a variety of things to skate.  It looked
like a lot of fun, unfortunately there were about 30 grown men in a big circle playing some sort of game
with a small bouncing ball right where most of the skateable stuff was.  It was really weird, I've never
seen that before.

 

 

It ended up being a pretty mellow day, we weren't very productive but I had a good time hanging out with
friends...and I got to test out my new mini blog cam.

Vans Session & Video

 

Amanda and Julie from Chicago are in town visiting their friend Gina who recently moved here for school.  
They met me at the Vans Skatepark after work today and we had a fun session.  Amy and Evelien also
came down to meet up and Priscilla was already there skating the combi.  There was enough going on
that I got out the video camera.  Unfortunately Evelien wasn't feeling well so her and Amy left early.
