Long time no skate, Orlando.

It was a blazing hot day when David and I set out to Orlando. We got a bit of a late start, but the sun was still pretty high up. It turned out pretty successful though!
Myself warming up at this little bank with a back tailslide.
David laid down a buttery trick on this.
Here's a random spot we found, there's only about 10 or less feet of set up. What do you think went down?
This is what i call a true East Coast spot. The ground is a complete cheese grater. David handled it like a champ coming away with no injuries and a clip. Zing!


These ledges are starting to become the new warm up spot now. David, and I met up with Max here but ended up staying for what seemed like a few hours.
Shane met up with us here at BJ's since it's right down the street from him. BJ's is always fun, Max and I both battled our tricks and came away with some clips.
People have passed by these forever but never skated it, including all of us. Shane heard these ledges/manual pad might be skateable so we stoppped by and checked it out. Turns out its a pretty tight spot. Its a ledge to manny pad to ledge. Here's Max doin a crook.
After skating we went on an adventure into the deep ditches of Palm Bay.
Shane thought this was a good way to end the day.

The End Is Near.

Here we are (David,Ricky,Clive,and I) a few of the fellows in Commit or Quit(a video project we have been working on for some time now), sorting through years of footage at the Glenn/Lester residence. We have definitely made some progress in these past few weeks and from what I have seen I don't think any of you will be disappointed with this video!

Brevard 4/11/12

Yesterday David and I went on a little mission in Merrit Island/Cocoa. Adam met up with us too and we had a good time hanging out, getting some clips, and bombing some hills.
These ledges are pretty slept on, not the best for grinding but still great for slides. I got a line here.
Looking down at my skateboard makes me happy.
This spot is pretty gnarly. A decent size drop and gap into a hesh bank. David powered through it and got a clip just before the sun went down.
Cocoa water tower at sunset. When it turned dark we turned on Adam's camera light and bombed some hills to end the day.

Showing around some locals 4/7/11

On Saturday Dakota and Ish came to Cocoa Beach and Sam and I showed them around to some local spots. I enjoyed being the filmer and we got some stuff done.
This is one of the better spots in Cocoa Beach since you can skate it so many different ways. This picture deosn't show the whole spot though. Everyone walked away with a clip from here.
The is the infamous Durango's ledge. Sam, Ish, and Dakota were all close to getting their tricks when we got kicked out by some wack hotel worker.
Everyone liked Healthfirst manny pad and stacked pretty hard here too.
Sam warming up with an ollie. This was the last spot of the day and everyone was pretty tired but Sam still tried and I'm sure he will get his trick next time.

Wrapping up Spring Break

David and I met up with some homies this past Sunday,which was my last day of Spring Break and hit up some good ol' Brevard spots. I wish I was able to get more than 2 pictures though.
First we warmed up at these pop out ledges that are forsure slept on. We met up with Max, Jon, and Shane here. Suprisingly they barely even needed much wax and we seshed them. David put in some work and walked away with a solid clip too.
Here is a perfect example of a Brevard type spot. You definitely have to make due with what you have around here. Luckily we were able to get one more try in and the clip before getting kicked out. Thanks for reading and don't forget to like the Commit or Quit facebook page if you have not yet!
