Sleep. The great earth is still. Leaves wither and brown. They fall away and touch the earth. Decay. The great cycle of life. New things will come from them after the earth sleeps. A few friends stop by from time to time throughout the year. They are from other places. Snow birds. Colorado. Pennsylvania. All over…
They try and sit out the cold spell. Frost glistens in the morning. Old bones crack and ache.The snow birds flutter and move to warmer regions. They long for warmth. We provide it. In spirit. They fly. They sing. They collect in groups and drink from cement ponds… nourishment for the soul. The snow birds are content. Thanks to Brandon Wong for the images. Skate- Ozzie

I got the line on the weird Anthony amoeba with a cool deck and diving block. Jake and Carlos cleaned it up and got it ready to rip. It only lasted a few sessions, but the memories last forever… especially if you have a few photos.
After years in the making, the Vans Off The Wall Skatepark opened this past Saturday and did not disappoint. Little girls, old men, street shredders and vert dogs all came out to get a sample of the 40,000 sq ft, California Skateparks built, wonderland located in Surf City USA. There has been a ton of coverage already, so I’m not going to go into design details, but here are a few photos from the day.
Check out the California Skateparks website for more info.
Huge thanks to Steve Van Doren and the Vans Crew, Jacks, CA Skateparks and everyone else involved in bringing another great park to the area. The Vans Off The Wall Skatepark is located at 7471 Center Avenue, Huntington Beach, CA, next to Old World. Hours are 10-7 right now with rumors of lights going in soon. After your sesh, head over to Grinderz in Old World for some burgers and good beers on tap.

Had enough of the Super Bowl references to skateboarding? Me too. Here are a few from yesterday and any given sunday at Salamander Ranch.
Cam, Kyle and I took a trip up north last month to Peacock Land for an epic weekend of pool shred. You can always count on Peacock to bring the goods and he did not disappoint. Hit some brand new ones and some old favorites. All in all good times with good friends… a perfect weekend hanging around Fresno.
Next up was a epic Blue Haven Rossmore Kidney. Could have skated this thing for days.
Swung by Ted’s to lurk out in the shallow end.
The next day, The Illusion showed up and kicked it into high gear.
Stopped by Ray’s for a game of skate and some House Beer that The Illusion was kind enough to bring to the party.
On the way home took a slight detour to check out this roadside gem. A little water never stopped an Aussie from shredding.
Oh wait, yes it did.
Huge thanks to Peacock for the hospitality and heavy shred… until next time.
