Chisago County Skate Day.

Austin Young and Matt Grady showed up at my place in the morning and asked if I wanted to join them skate some Chisago County skate parks. Here is the story and pics of the day.

Austin getting all excited and setting up some plywood to drop in with.

Light check? Flash not on... and Taylor's Falls gas stations don't have double A batteries? Stupid little cities. I made due without flash for the day.

Matt Grady: Kick Flip

Austin tried... failed. But good try.



You can actually make some good lines at this park. Long mini with a half bowl and a decent quarter pipe make it a good time.

Grady looking to drop in.

Austin just always steezing out.

Grady getting some coping.

Ay doing his long and lanky thing.

I guess its the end of the road for this Airblaster head wear.

We made a trip over to the Chisago Skate Park... best mini around.

Young Ripped it up for a long time. Solo sesh.


Stick figure? Possibly a wizard.

More chillin, after 5 hours of skating siting feels real good.

Gettin a little crazy with it.

Cruising at paradise park. I have a pretty cool sequence of this that I will put up later.

The way home. Nothing like skating in the Midwest...

Getting Colder.

So here it is again; colder temperatures, leaves changing, that smell... Awesome.

Today I was thinking that its crazy to look at who is still involved with the snowboard lifestyle. Who is still pumped to make it to the premiers, and all the people that don't even bother anymore. It seems like the group gets smaller and smaller every year, but it also gets closer and more comfortable to be in after you have stayed this long.

Growing up, my dreams have only been being a shredder, or photographer for shredders. On a day to day basis its what I think about, its who I am. I feel like the industry is my family, the hills are my home.

Some people in my life tell me to grow up and forget about it. Sometimes I wish i did... But then the air changes again, it starts getting cold, you can feel it on your finger tips, on your toes, the cold breeze on your face. Suddenly I don't care about anything other than making the season happen all over again. Pushing myself harder than I did the last. Watching all the vids, checking out your friends parts, studying the tricks they do, and wondering how to make it better. Looking through the mags, studying photos from my piers, thinking how I can make my work look different than theirs, and hopefully making it up to par with their work. The wheels in your head start spinning. The thoughts take over.

This season I can't wait to spend most of my time in the cold states. Midwest mission. I can't wait to shoot with the people I grew up with. The people that have had the most influence on me than any others. There is a lot of talent here in MN, this season I plan on showing off that talent. Making it recognized, making it happen.

To all of you that are in this for life, with out exceptions, without much choice, those who were raised on it, and became it, its who you are, much respect.

I just put up a bunch of photos from last year and the years before it. Pretty awesome, at least pretty chill.
