Berlin, Germany part 1

A wonderful place to take the kids.

Whoa, the RVCA team is in Berlin at the same time as my vacation! So I showed up for the demo and signing. Here we have Deanna with the storied Mike Burnett.

Kevin Long – a man I have always known as Spanky, although I think he is shedding that moniker.

Cairo Foster, gets interviewed by the German media, they love to tell you how bad you are and see how you respond. I hope they realize this guy is a legend.

Jimmy-san and Leo Romero, together they are a handful.

Leo gets rad, always. I don't have any photos from the signing or the demo, but I can describe them thusly: Nobody came to the signing, and the demo was in fact a "jam" on the first day of practise for a contest. So basically we were asked to skate during a bunch of dude's practise time. and NO fans were there, only people in the contest who could care less about seeing and old guy skate. Me and Kevin are the only ones that skated over 5 minutes.

This is a girl waiting for her photos at the real old school photobooth that is just on the street in Berlin.

It says: Black & White photos for Passports. 4 pics for 2 Euros, which as of today equals $2.40 American Dollars.

No more Spanky. Got it.

Leo's greasy.

Mmmmmm, European girls...

I guess when it's not art, you shouldn't look at butts.
Deanna was in wife mode, huh?

Do the girls there look the same here?

THRUSH METAL.

I never liked the name spanky.

I would love to skate in a robe. One guy that goes to my local park got back from a wedding one day and went straight to the park. Skated in a tuxedo, it was sweet.

Does the nickname Spanky insinuate that he has a chorinc masturbation problem? Jk. Looking forward to his part in that Stay Gold.

Cairo Foster is how old? He still does some big shit.

Sucks about that Demo. Welcome to everyday life,rockstar.

That girl with the blond hair looks like a boy. She's pretty cute.

I can tell you didn't have the flash on those lurk pictures to not bring attention to yourself. It sucks when you see something at night you want to take a photo of but it's just not going to happen.
