So last night after our epic pool session we had a special treat from our buddy Ozzie Ausband by sharing his first and only copy of a new book he just released with @williamsharpimages . A historic book full of killer photos from 1975- 1980 from back yard pool, pipes, ditches, skate contests and much more. I’m honored and flattered to have a few images in the book and blessed to be in front of the lens at that time and era being at the right place at the right time. There’s two photos - one from Winchester skate park (Andrecht) and Marina Del Rey skatepark (front board slide) that I have never seen before this book is a must have for any old school skateboard enthusiast or even newbies who wanna know where their skateboarding roots came from. I ordered mine a few days ago on Amazon.com - it’s called “Back In The Day, the rise of skateboarding” , support the cause and order one today, you won’t be disappointed, so many gems in this book that have never been published or seen by our industry (Swipe left to peep some photos) #oldschoolskateboarding#storytime#backintheday#williamsharp#ozzieausband
I got invited to skate a permission back yard pool deep in the heart of LA with @lancemountain@eddieelguera and @christianhosoi - I managed to get a front rock in the deep end tonight. Photo by Ozzie Ausband - 2017

My buddie @johnbuultjens just came out with an amazing book titled RIDE which has also set to be released as a motion picture later this year, super happy he was able to share this unique story of redemption and perseverance- make sure you click on John’s IG to order this book- here’s the scoop... Ride lays bare the harrowing beginnings and the tough life lessons learned by John Buultjens on his rise to BMX Glory, Against All the Odds. Raised by his poor family on Glasgow's Drumchapel estate, he slept rough to escape his violent father's beatings. Placed in a children's home by his mother, he was then adopted by a bi-racial couple. After conquering his own racism, his life turned around, and the blockbuster movie E.T. inspired a love of BMX. Although spurred by bitterness, John's emigration to Australia saw him take his sporting enthusiasm to new levels. Then came the call from California to lead Haro BMX. As their global brand manager, he now backs and sponsors riders across the globe. Hollywood has since turned his unbelievable journey into a movie, set for release in March 2018. Here, John reveals inner secrets including family murders, hatred, sexual abuse - and how his white-knuckle ride has taken him to the top against all the odds. #ridethemovie#redemption#truestory#bmxlife
Success usually never falls on your lap, it mostly comes from perseverance, dedication and hard work. I’m not speaking about monetarily success, I’m speaking about reaching and completing a task at hand or setting a goal yourself. An idle mind doesn’t give you the ability to see such great opportunities when they arise... Experience and Wisdom does. #dowork#beproductivetoday#lookforopportunities#talentcomesinmanyforms
I just posted a great video on my Facebook page that was filmed by @mattevs about the great work that @skatemd.healinghearts is doing within their community that uses skateboarding to reach children and kids to give them the chance to enjoy the feeling that skateboarding gives you in a way that gets kids involved that would not have a chance or the opportunity to do so... awesome work and love what you gals and guys are doing - peep the video, it’s a good one
Happy 55th Birthday to this legend @eddieelguera Eddie in the late 70’s was the best skateboarder in the world, i had aspired to be and skate just like him someday because he pushed the limits and opened the creative door to progress our sport... Eddie influenced me then and he’s just as influential today as strong man of God To my brotha in Christ... thank you for your contribution to our generation and generations to come. Hope you are having a blessed time in Brazil my friend, love ya.
