Josh kicks it off at Clairmont with a little night session then throws things into full vert swing.
Well it’s the last day of July. A lot of Birthdays this month, hot ass fuck skate sessions, beaches, and BBQing! The best part of July is also having most schools out of for Summer. So we can session during the weekday! The 29th was my birthday, spent the whole day in TJ getting some dental work – not the ideal birthday but it got me super hyped to get back down to TJ with a crew and film some shit soon! There’s endless spots, and I didn’t see any skate stoppers?
Me and Josh Stafford have been working on wrapping-up a full part for Strange Notes. Recently we hit Hawk’s ramp for some maneuvers – padding up.
The walk to the top, get that PMA.
Yeah, I really need to learn how to shoot photos in-doors. I’ve spent my entire photography experience learning how to use natural light to be honest. So indoor photos & flash’s are extremely un-natural for me.
Another example, but a beautiful executed invert by Stafford.
Back to the streets! Balboa park offers a lot of fun flatground. Jamie Cunningham with a Fakie Heel in a game of S.K.A.T.E. w/ Chris Coogan.
I took Chris Coogan to Dead Man’s Ditch because he said he’d never been. A few tricks were thrilled, and this Bs Noseblunt was just the first of many that went down very quickly.
Then down to check-out this hot spot.
Switch Boardslide with some goodness after. Coogan has a Rip Clip coming from TSM in a few days! Watch for it.
Stopped by Jesse Corbett’s Union Leatherworks Garage, always feels good to keep the DIY ethic’s in your day.
Coogan and Ricky Holderby checking out this tail short rail.
Ricky gets a Bs Noseslide. This wasn’t the first time either.
David Cobb – 5050 the bottom part of the rail, so gnarly.
On a side note* During the session BK decided to go dirt boarding down the hill.
Ricky and Jesse Silva getting those clips! This is right before the make.
And right after the make! Ricky is a blue-collar working man!
Coogan and BK sit back and enjoy the show.
Now to this spot, it’s amazing how the most simple things can end up the best sessions. Brendan Keaveny gets a Pole Jam truck knee.
Coogan’s down – Mellon jammer
Ricky too!! Jah Jamming that bad boy with style.
Then Jesse Silva pulled off this crazy Fs Rock stall, here’s my shitty documentation of it.
Wait, it’s not over. Now BK gets this fucked trick. You can name this one.
Alexis Mariena caught all the action on the VX. You better believe it’s going to look amazing as his work always does.
Headed to Horace Man and Chris LaRue gets a Bs Tailslide
Chris learned a new trick on this ledge, Bs Crailslide. He didn’t like the pinky, but I had to use this one just because it’s too funny.
Better be quick!
BK gets down with a Fs Nosegrind zest.
Wax on Wax off.
Then Brendan got a bad ass line with Lurkville founder and over-all rad dude Tyrone Taylor.
See ya in the streets!!
Here’s a highlight reel from yesterday at the Vans Bowl-A-Rama in Sydney, Australia. Tony Hawk is in the mix and came away with the win for the Masters Division!

Here’s a video recap of what went down last Saturday at Clast At Clairmont. Tons of shredding and rad times!
Independent just released a full new part with the bird man himself Tony Hawk, so inspiring, to this day.
