I spent memorial day in the woods

I did my best to avoid the beach this past weekend, even though the weather was great and the waves were good I retreated inland and had a blast riding some old beat out Hondas and camping in the van. Good times for sure! More pics to come these are just a few my brother took with his phone. -SPK

Happy Tardzinger

Super fun paddle this morning, warm, sunny, clear water, so necessary. I'm so glad I didn't hit the snooze button. -SPK


Best youtube video I've seen in in a while. -SPK

Somebody Sunday's : Lino Gonzalez

Lino Gonzalez is from my home town of Southbridge Ma where he and I grew up riding Bmx. He's a few years younger than me so he was always just one of the groms riding around, until he wasn't. You see at some point he just stepped out of the shadows cast by the older riders around him, stepped out of the shadowy shit town were we lived and began to shine. He did it by getting good on a bike, sure, but more importantly he did it with the right attitude. Lino is true to himself and genuinely wants whats best for Bmx. While this isn't a line thats always easy to take its one that can't fail. He's married to a great girl, is a successful respected pro rider, started his own company, and just opened a shop. Now he casts his own big shadow. Check it out 90EAST and 90EAST on ESPN

Old Bikes

This video sums up old bikes very nicely, some chit chat, plenty of looking, lots of tinkering, and very little riding. -SPK

The good ol' days in RI ?

Well it might have been the good ol' days for these guys but I'm smack dab in the middle of my good ol' days right now . It's funny how the waves look exactly the same back then. I guess the beach has never been good. Cool video from www.kettlebottom.com -SPK

UPDATE: I was informed by one of my friends after he saw this post that I was in fact past my good ol' days. Well thats just like your opinion man. I call it like i feel it and I'm sticking with middle. -SPK

My Mom is such a beautiful, kind, caring, and patient person. She makes sure to tell me how proud she is when I'm doing it right. She'll tell me whats up real quick if I'm blowing it, but the best thing about my Mom is she took the time to take the time, and that showed me how important enjoying life is. She lead by example and I followed, I can't thank her enough for that. Thanks to Mom and Dad for doing it right. Happy Mothers day Mom, I love you. Thank you so much for everything.

The Endlesswave is open

I stopped by The Endlesswave grand opening last night after scoring some junk waves at the beach. I didn't feel to good so I didn't hang out to long, but I managed to meet some nice people and scope a few sweet rides. The place looks real nice. Hats of to Greg and the crew, well done. -SPK

On the road

It's been a while since I've posted. It was my son's 2nd birthday this past week so I took some time off to spend with the little peanut. Any time you ask Colton where he wants to go, or were he's pretending to drive to, its "THE BEACH !" So we took him to the beach in three different states. We packed up the old VW van and went north to visit friends in NH, Hit up my Bros house down the Cape and spent time with Grandpa in RI. We had a great trip and Colton had a blast. Happy Birthday my boy! -SPK
