Rick Howard #12.
Slipping Into Darkness.
Rick shared a part with Mike Carroll in Mouse. Mike was recovering from some injuries that limited his on board time. Rick does a bunch of fakie 5-0 and noseslide variations to go with a number of frontside pop shove-its. He even hits up a couple of handrails. Also of note in Mouse is Rick's skateboarding in the woods skit. He rides through the leaves and fallen trees in the forest with a little help from some well placed plywood.
I hit my goal of skateboarding at least 200 times on the year today during my lunch break. I went to the park for fifteen windy and kinda crappy minutes. It was cheap, but it counts. I knew I'd get to 200, but I think I was stressing out a little the last couple of days since the weather is looking variable.
