Mash With Us – San Francisco

james-crookftmiley

I’ve been blowing it lately with the updates here on T.C. I have been so busy with work and filming for the next video. So here’s some photos from a recent trip that I took with Chris Coogan up to the bay area to work on his part for the video. We linked up with James Truesdale the whole time, and just freestyled around the bay area.

The first stop was a nice cafe in The Mission, we met up with Eric Polozzolo who informed us that we were going to the legendary “Hook” spot, so within 2 hours off the plane we were on the way to one of the most legendary skate spots of all time. This trip started off so bad ass, I knew it was going to be productive.


Eric Polozzolo directed James to the middle of nowhere – The Hook


Beers & Ollie – we made it inside The Hook ( It’s not easy! )


Coogan getting ready to roll down into one of the most epic spots ever, the stoke level was maximum.


Getting out is even harder, and worth every bit.


After The Hook we checked out this other rad ditch, where Coogan slayed it yet again along with Adrian Mallory and homies.


James killed it for us all week long, here’s a prime example of awesome. Pissing in the wind.


Mandatory visit to China Banks is a most to any skater visiting SF. Coogan got some killer lines here!


The fine folks over at Lowcard let us stop by, they hooked us up with some killer camping gear & product. Coogan and James sheshed the mini ramp. Here Coogan floats a nice ollie.


Another mandatory spot to check out is Twin Peaks, good spliff zone to enjoy the epic view SF has to offer.


Coogan & James at EMB – can’t go to SF without skating EMB!


James, Bs Tailslide at EMB.


Bs Lipslide as well.


We decided to take 2 days to head out to St. Helena, camp, skate, and check out what David Cole has been up to! All smiles in St. Helena


I got James to take a photo of me in these rad LC sunny’s.


But he was having so much fun with the camera he decided to take a few more, Bs Smith.


Bs Air


Terry Chambers came along the ride with Lefty, here’s a Fs Air. I grew up skating with Terry and his brother, it was rad to be in a different place with him doing the same thing we always have.


Camping in the middle of nowhere, about an hour out of St. Helena.


We hit this random park that was pretty fun. James got this Crook on the way out.


Back in the city – James messing around with a 180 Switch manual.



Warm up game..


Of S.K.A.T.E.


Had to stop by Flower Shop! Coogan with a ollie up Pivot.


Fort Miley is a easy spot to loose your board! James found his..


James, Crook at Fort Miley


We headed to this skatepark called Richmond


This is Matt Barry, he fucking rules. Thanks for letting us crash your couch and being a killer tour guide.


The homie one finger with a Bs Diaster


I did a Bs D too! James has been getting behind the photo camera lately, when not behind the VX.


Coogan – Fs Ollie.

We’ll be back soon to the Bay Area before finishing up the filming for “Mash With Us” Thanks to everyone that let us stay with you and showing us around. A special thanks to Eric Palozzolo, Adrian Mallory, and Matt Barry.
