Old pics....good times

On our way down to NC we stopped of in VA. We surfed the jetty at the far end of Virginia Beach is was so much fun we stayed out until 9pm something finally spooked us. This pic was taken with a timer on the boardwalk.

There was a shower on the boardwalk.

These things are everywhere on the OBX, trust me you don't want to find them barefoot. -SPK

Here is an old pic of me at the Charlton park. I probably got kicked out three seconds after this was taken. Out of all the bikes I've had this one was my favorite, S&M PBR. -SPK

Examples of prejudice

In the book To Kill a Mockingbird , one of multiple themes concerns a man wrongly tried and convicted because of his race. The movie Gattaca is about a future where genetically-enhanced people are the majority, while a non-genetically enhanced minority are socially and economically discriminated and marginalized for their "imperfections". A noteworthy example is the Mutant race in the X-Men, which are frequently subjected to prejudice. And of course me hating paddle boarders because most of them are idiots that don't know what the FUCK they're doing. I didn't take this picture but I did write puke on it. -SPK

Easy Rider

So this is my Grandmother Ruby, she is the most amazing lady you'll ever meet. At 95 years old she still drives, knows how to use a computer, stays up till 3am instant messaging people, and says stuff like "I don't know why but some time I feel tired in the afternoon". She just keeps on going. When ever I see her she makes me think of that quote from The Shawshank Redemption "Get busy living, or get busy dying." I took the picture last spring, I was cleaning out my garage and had all my bikes outside she just hopped on and started riding them around the yard. I hope it runs in the family. -SPK

"The Quiver" or as we say in Mass "The Quivaah"

This was most of my board collection as of 8/01/08.

Skate: top to bottom
1. Some stupid longboard I built up when my cousin and I were trying to break each others speed records. Its fast as fuck. 40+
2. One of those springy Sector nine deals, its actually really fun. It's my guilty pleasure.
3. A replica of a 70's board, I made it for my brother it's only in the pic cause I made it. It's really his board and he rips it!
4. Duane Peters Red Kross deck. I don't deserve this one, I can't skate it the way it should be skated.
5. Beer cruiser /old stand by.

Surf: left to right
1. Some old 60's board my brother got for free and gave to me. It's junk but I can't get rid of it.
2. 10' Bing Gold Standard w/ glassed on 10" fin. This board is heavy!!! I love it. Get out of my fucking way !!!!
3. 9'6" Infinity Rad Nose Rider. This board rips! It's found its way down the whole East Coast, to Costa Rica, and Hawaii
4. 9'4" Infinity Rad Nose Rider. Not my board but I've probably surfed it and stored it more that the owner so I'm counting it. You know who you are.
5. 9'6" Rainbow. My first board ever! I've surfed this this all over the country from Matunick to Malibu it's beat but I luv it.
6. 7' Egg. I forget who shaped this some SoCal guy. It's cool.
7. 5'11" Mike Perry 70's single fin. I got this board for a steal I don't use it much.
8. 6'4" 70's Sunset Gun. The jury is still out on this one. The colors are sick, the green is metal flake.
9. 6'6" Bing Bonzer. So sick! This board is a blast. I drove down to NC to buy this board. I just had to have it.
10. 5'10" Channel Islands Fish. This is a pre Burton model made with Clark foam. I surf it all the time. We traveled light to Panama last year and this was the only board I took.

1. LibTech TRS 157. I cut the tip of the nose and tail off so it would look like a T.Rice Board. Custom checkers make it go faster. I love this board and rode it way past its prime It finally broke, so I've moved on.
2. O-sin Powder Gun 168. What can I say look at the thing it's awesome! Everyone should own one of these...wait everyone I know does own one. I had a great day at Alpine a few years ago with this Bad Larry.
3. Rome Notch 158. East Coast powder slasher.

I have a few boards that didn't make this shot. An early 90's Burton Air 6, a LibTech Growboy 196cm, and Re-issue Burton twin 158cm. I have a couple more skateboards kicking around too. Plus my 7'2" Cannibal truster that I bought from Sid @ WaterBrothers it was my first new board. Sid was rad he actually took time to talk to me even though I was kook. Maybe next year I fit'em all. -SPK

One more for the collection

It was like Christmas at the Worcester shop today, thanks to the Capita Super Corporation. We all got our boards in the mail. Thanks Capita! Your the best!!!!!!

Today is Veterans Day, Show Some Respect

Today some of you don't have school, some don't have to work, but there are some that don't get to come home, some that can't walk any more, some that miss their loved ones, some that have nightmares every night, some that are dead, and their are many who fought for our country. Today is a day to remember these men and women and take pause to think about the sacrifices that they have really made for their country.

It's not just another day off.

Here is a link to a video that has the storys of seven men who served this counrty. They where also POW's. Take a few minutes to check it out, or not, after all it's a free country. -SPK

Wind Power

So a school near my house just put one of these bad Larry's in. The neighbors are bummed because they have to look at it but I like it, I think there cool looking. It supplies the school with 70% of its power for the year. I'm currently building one on my roof with plywood and scrap metal and I'm going to paint a spiral on it so anyone who looks at it will become hypnotized and do my biding. Free electricity and an army of loyal pawns......SICK

My dad in the 60's?

No it's just me with a sketchy mustache. This pic is from a few years back on a trip to the OBX in NC. I've made the trip down to NC every fall for the past ten years. This year I've decided to skip it do to bad weather and good surf here at home. So ends the decade run. -SPK

75 CB500T Chop

This is a 75 500t chop that my friend Jay made for me. I've got a bit of fine tuning to do still but I can't wait to get out on the street and rip it! Check out some of his other work at Special79

It was one of those tiny days when you can't even decide to go out or not. But we had this disposable camera in the car with a few pics left so we figured why not? Bryan, Kier, and Spike
