as long as people are blogging about brava spectre, take a look at this ridiculous picture. this show was one of maybe two times i went to academy skatepark even though it was pretty close to where i grew up.
my favorite photo that’s ever been taken of me. Just a hardflip over the gap at Academy, but the lighting looks so sick and I’ll never be able to take a photo there again so it has a little bit of memory to it. This was taken by my main squeeze, Bobby Murphy, about a year and a half back when Acad was still booming. I miss that place so much, and there are so many things I wanted to try but didn’t get to because it closed down. Not only was Acad a good place to skate but it was like the meeting point for the group of kids that I enjoyed skating with the most, most of whom I don’t see anymore or haven’t seen in months. Hopefully a new place like Academy comes up soon so we can all skate together soon. If not, I guess I’ll just have to man up and spend the money to go to NY with everyone so I can catch up with the old crew and finally get some damn footage. Maine has been sick so far for anyone who’s wondering, having a computer is definitely making the down time more bearable. I think I’m going to go sit out on the porch, have a nice cigar, and listen to the ocean before I go to bed. Peace.
