Steve Olson #3.
Making it a great Friday with the Funky Monk rocking some blue Kastels and a big crooked grind.
My friend had a pair of the Ricky Oyola pro model from Kastel. They looked tight and were all synthetic, which mattered to my friend since he is vegan. I had a pair of the Mercury team model. They were big and clunky space boots. I never got them broken in. They might have been a little too small for my feet as well. I gave the shoes to another friend and he was stoked on them.
The excellent Chrome Ball Incident turned three years old this week and has a selection of classics hand picked by Michael Sieben for today. Keep up the good work, Chops.
I actually rolled away smoothly from a couple of frontside boardslides to fakie last night. I don't think I had ever tried or done that trick before. I've been working on my frontside sliders on the old flat bar and they really are nothing to brag about, but it feels good to land a new trick.
