Flare to Freeze

See video

Above: Finally pulled off a freeze ( "Crossed-Lean Freeze from Shannon Technique" out of a flare.@ 0:14 Not the prettiest flare ever but sticking the end makes it postable. Been trying to come out of flares for years with something that is more dynamic than just putting my feet down.

Current Project Spring 2013

My plate is full this year with multiple ongoing projects. The Rex "project" mentioned below several months ago has stabilized after 6 months of staggeringly little sleep ( or awake-ness ) and I am happy to share with you that the Rexy continues to payoff in a myriad of very small beautiful ways and I am BACK!

NYC DANCE PARADE 2012 was a fun and exhausting affair. I danced every block two or three times using my skateboard to exhibit my Step-N-Roll Flavor. I cannot really decide on how to title the form. Is it Stepping-Roll, Steppin-Roll or Step-N-Roll .. These are the kind of decisions I am not very good at making. Tons more images after the jump

Come and see the Parade. I will be rocking my Stepping Roll Flavor on the board with the crutches.. and waving stiffly while wearing White Gloves  ; )
