How Embarrassing!

Image Description Here
Is what Josh, Austin, and Spanky said when they walked around the corner and saw a 10 foot tall photo of themselves looking right at them. It's at the Active store in Costa Mesa, right next to one of our favorite restaurants. So I had to embarrrass them more by shooting photos of them with the whole resaurant watching. And they mis-spelled Austin's last name!

Johnny Goes Balls Out In SF

Image Description
This weekend was spent in the merry land of San Fran, on a spontaneous mission brought about by Johnny's intense yearning for a new shirt. We had a radical tour guide in the form of Chilen or if you're a Thrasher reader, The Jesus. Young Rob came along and ripped. Homies were dropping in on us left and right, even Bradford made an appearance. The trip was capped with an epic visit to Big Sur where some shadowy figure loomed over us. It turned out to be Austin, I mean Austin.

Well, I'm glad you asked. The world famous Mark Appleyard was on the start of some international playboy journey that mixes skateboarding, with hot women, and sunny beaches...

And Matt Mumford, who I thought was about to kick my ass at any moment... just kidding. He was on a skate mission, and of course, since he is in his homeland, taking it easy with Mark.
