Lee Yankou stopped by today to show me the latest issue of SBC magazine. For all of you that dont know that mag its a Canadian mag. He's the latest recruit to the Foundation international team of schredders rocking the F.
One of are Foundation international team riders recently came up on the cover of the French version of Thrasher. You can watch a couple of clips of max in the friends section of Cataclysmic Abyss also.
We've been up in SF for a couple days now. Joe Brook let us raid the Thrasher and Slap warehouse. We all took advantage of that. Thanks again! Now we're just going to random spots with Joe shooting some photos here and there. The schedule is skate from 11 am to 1 am straight.
As in Josh and his wife Jenna Harmony. Yes! They have a music CD available from Toy Machine!
And yes, it is good.
I'm gonna try to get Kevin to post a song up on Suffer the Joy.com for you guys to listen to.

Started the day off hitting up this skate shop and the new Santa Cruz skate park. Had yet another BBQ with some new friends. Then we drove up the coast to Pacifica for a little indoor demo inside the Log Shop. Fun times had by all. We're done with the shop appearances and now street skating for the next couple of days.
We woke up in the best hotel ever then proceeded to watch the best ghost tv show ever. Made it to the demo on time(about a block away from the hotel). The guys signed a couple autographs then headed over to the local park for a demo and video screening. All went very well. Total epicness. i want to thank Mobleys and the skate park for having us. Everyone had a ton of fun. See you next time. Next up is a appearance in Santa Cruz around noon tomorrow then a demo in Santa Maria after that. We're deffiently not in the best hotel ever anymore...
Is what Josh, Austin, and Spanky said when they walked around the corner and saw a 10 foot tall photo of themselves looking right at them. It's at the Active store in Costa Mesa, right next to one of our favorite restaurants. So I had to embarrrass them more by shooting photos of them with the whole resaurant watching. And they mis-spelled Austin's last name!

Foundation is on the road. We showed up a little late in Santa Maria but the demo/shop signing went off great. Thanks to One Way boardshop for a good time. We're in Atascadero right now in about the nicest hotel ever. Demo tomorrow about a quarter mile away from are hotel. Maybe we'll actually be on time.
This weekend was spent in the merry land of San Fran, on a spontaneous mission brought about by Johnny's intense yearning for a new shirt. We had a radical tour guide in the form of Chilen or if you're a Thrasher reader, The Jesus. Young Rob came along and ripped. Homies were dropping in on us left and right, even Bradford made an appearance. The trip was capped with an epic visit to Big Sur where some shadowy figure loomed over us. It turned out to be Austin, I mean Austin.

Corey Duffel is the newest member of the Osiris Family. Let the madness begin! Corey brings original flavor to the brand with his unique approach to skating. He is well known for ripping spots and continues to crush everything in his path. When asked what made him decide to join Osiris, his response was simply, Buttery kicks and sick team. Basically, its tits. Corey is a welcomed addition to Osiris and we are looking forward to see what tricks he has up his sleeve. Kick out the jams Corey!
Quick trip up north for a couple demos and some street skating. Heres the scheduled stops.
March 13th - One Way Board Shop in Santa Maria, CA
March 14th - Mobley's in Atascadero, CA
March 15th - Log Shop in Pacifica, CA
The sun sets on Long Beach as the life of a great skateboarder and human being Shane Cross, comes to an end. Our thoughts go out to his friends and family and especially to Ali Boulala whose is currently in critical condition. Read here. (Fourth paragraph)
Flip rider Shane Cross died in a motorcycle accident yesterday. The 20-year-old was fatally injured while riding on the back of Ali Boulala's motorcycle in Australia. Ali survived the accident but is currently in critical condition.
Our hearts and best wishes go out to the friends and families of Shane and Ali.
Last night Ed lost it and tried to shove Ptah down the drain. Having a skateboard company like Toy Machine on your hands is a lot of work so a few breakdowns are expected. Good thing cool customer Keegan Sauder was there to talk him down. We could've had a disaster on our hands.
Posted March 6th, 2007 by Focus your thoughts to ALI B... (see comments)
Well, I'm glad you asked. The world famous Mark Appleyard was on the start of some international playboy journey that mixes skateboarding, with hot women, and sunny beaches...
And Matt Mumford, who I thought was about to kick my ass at any moment... just kidding. He was on a skate mission, and of course, since he is in his homeland, taking it easy with Mark.

Posted March 5th, 2007 by the only words i can make out are the riders names
Everybody pitched in to move the LAX Bump to Table across the sidewalk so Johnny could skate it. After braving some strong winds and cold drafts, we split and headed to a sweet uphil ledge. Coming home we took a scenic route and ended up on the bridge. Everbody kept their teeth.
Meanwhile Austin looks at sharks, and Ed and Deanna had yet another art show.
