This is the reason the blog has been neglected lately...I started a small skateboard company!

It has been a lot of work getting things set up and product made, but a lot of fun.

Boards and t-shirts now available at www.meowskateboards.com!  More to come soon...

I got word that there was only one female camper at the Element YMCA Skate Camp that week and received a last minute invite to bring a few girls up.  After a few phone calls I loaded up the car and headed out.

We only had a day and a half at camp before we had to head back, so we made the most of our short time there.  Samarria Brevard frontside tailslide moments after arrival.

This place is amazing and I highly recommend goinging if you ever get a chance.

I met up with Julie Kindstrand at Vans Skatepark to film some new clips.

Powerful 5-0's around the corner.

After we finished filming I packed my bag and was starting to walk out when these two showed up, so I decided to stay a little longer and get a few more shots.
