We headed up to Portland from San Diego on a mission to hit some big transition – documenting for the new Typical Culture “Mash with us” video. Click through the photos above & watch the video recap below.
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.
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..
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.
Chris Coogan and I headed up to the bay area for a few days to film for the Mash With Us video. We stopped by our friends at Lowcard to say Hi and check out their new ramp.
James Truesdale coming through with another killer edit of The Boys! It’s all about having fun on your board and getting out with your buds. No over produced roll-ups in these edits.
The weekend is here! The weather seems to be clearing up in San Diego just in time. Get hyped and go shred!.
Featuring: Tim Williams, Little Chris, Andy Mack, Brendan Keaveny, Dolan Stearns, Chris LaRue, Bario Mike, Nick Saurez, HEMAN, James Truesdale, JJ Rice, and David Cobb.
Yesterday was a blast at Route 44 Skate Shop, a special thanks goes out to Route & Gullwing Trucks for helping us put this event on. Always a blast BBQing with the boys and skating a one-time wallride set-up. Everyone was mashing tough, noticeably rippers & winners and taking home the cash was Dolan Stearns, Chris Coogan, Ricky Holderby, and Andrew Biernat. More video & photos coming soon. Brandon Greer already made a killer edit along with some visual stimuli from Brian Walnum. Thanks to everyone who came out to support local skateboarding!!
Pontus Alv took us for a little tour to this fucking epic park that me and Chris Russell ended up camping at. Here’s a fun sesh from The Skateboard Mag featuring Willis Kimble, Alex Foy, Tom Remillard, and Chris.
Here’s a few more photos of the last part of our journey in Europe. Chris Russell and I want to say thanks to everyone that helped us out along the way – Nicky Grunfeld, Henry Forsnor, John Magnusson, Ole Rauff, Pontus Alv, Allis Wonderland, and Willis Kimble.
Headed back to CPH to skate some more with all the awesome lads!
Have the man himself teach you how to do crailslide reverts in a backyard pool!
