I can't believe you made that kid do those heelflips & then not give him the prize box... Did you give him a deck or something?

So much shit talking on that park roundup.

Gotta have TOY's back, ya' dig son?

Awesome video on Thrasher.

Austin's owl hoodie owns me.

And Kevin's, like Harm's, is really well-done. I didn't think you could get freakier than Ed's, but I think Grif eked that out.

Pobrecito Catch! No one's going to blame him when he goes off the deep end come puberty. ):
