Ok you fricking skate destoyers. I just happened to be at Crossroads skate show this last weekend and all of a sudden I see Angel Ramirez, then Nick Merlino, then Dan Murphy, WTF?!?! I saw Corey but I knew he would be there. Tall as F Corey Duffel. Of all a sudden Abdias Rivera was standing in front of me. Something was going on? A conspiracy? A coup de teat? Is it my birthday? Who else? Oh shit it's the skate monster, Nick Merlino. And wait I know that guy but I have not met him yet personally, Marquis Preston, in the house! Where's Sierra? I bet he's here somewhere.
All of a sudden, F Team Manger, Mike "The Sinc" Sinclair is standing directly in front of me. "Swank, I have the entire F team with me here. Plus I have three new secret weapons (riders). We are going on a Southwest tour to El Paso Texas and you can't stop us!" Next thing you know they are all running towards the parking lot where two vans awaited them all. I ran after them with my camera in hand. When I caught up with them they were quickly throwing bags, boards and bodies into the vans. I saw three dudes I have never seen before.
I yelled out after than and all of a sudden bam! I got blind sided but someone. I was out cold.
I woke up sometime later. A crowd of Crossroads rowdies around me pouring beer on me and laughing loudly. I jumped up and got away from the anarchy crowd. The F team and vans were long gone. I felt my camera in my pocket and pulled it out. I checked out the photos and this is what I found.
Foundation Super Co. team is on fire and traveling east through AZ, NM and TX ending up in El Paso for a massive rally! Look out for them, they might knock you out too.
F heads got together at El Faro in Barrio Logan to plan 2011 assault for the team, video releases and trips. Present were Corey "Duffman" Duffel, Mike "The Sinc" Sinclair, Tim from Thrasher (guest), Matt Barker and myself. Lots of names were discussed poling for position maybe but not limited to: Merlino, Marquis, Abdias, Smith, Spencer, Dakota, Zorilla, Damers. Video Release in April? Who the F? Texas demo trip in Feb?
i was up in the mountains yesterday in callaradhoe with Swank and some osiris homies. it was negative 12 outside. what the heck! i aint used to that kind of crapola weather! anyway, im back home now and this is what im up to. lurking with my dogs! check out that beardoh weirdo! i dont know that dude. who is it. is that the same kid that ate shit on his face in thats life?
the mountains were tight, but i aint no abominable snow yeti! a huge thanks to Zumiez for the party and all the support.
hey chumps and chumpettes!
so the swankster just taught me how to post on the yeto site. ive been thinking for many moons now how the mighty F needs more posts and love on the site. its time for the loyal foundation fans to get some stoooped posts made by yours truly- me. rambling about nothing and uploading photos that i take. its blogging time!
happy new year and go forth and buy some foundation decks. especially the duffman board, cause hes back for a short while longer!
Yes we were there. I was setting up the TY hard goods booth solo after Barker, Director of Affairs, left back to SD. It was a 10x10 and I was struggling and it reminded me of 1994 back in the day. But Brad Staba was close by setting up Skate Mental booth which was fun. He kept giving me dirty looks and thumbs up which kept me confused. We had Destructo and DLX to our left. DGK and Girl across from us. Sole Tech to our right and of course the Dekline booth right next door. The show was busy and fun. Agenda/Berrics had a bunch of core retailers flown in from all of over USA. Thanks was cool. People were hyped and I practically lost my voice talking so much. Mark Waters was hasseling me all to hell but I love that guy. He just had a baby boy. Sole tech ripped off our F... that campaign with some sweet F-you propaganda. For it's P-U in the shoe technology. It's ok, I understand. It's good shit! Kevin F was busy hella at the Dekline booth. Made some good distro action there. Ok here comes the pics! Party on people.
Our 10x10. Barker helped get it in and KF helped me hang decks. Looking good!
