You are going to see dem around trust me.
Friday afternoon Summer in Oakland!
It was my first time to check this skate plaza it has a sweet style. Hope to see more like this popping up in more parts of town.
I am looking forward to going there for more events everybody was chilling with the vibe and sounds from the DJ.
Got first place in the contest for the different age groups. Got some new gear but better than that was the right to brag.

What to do on a Saturday afternoon? Oh wait I know head out to the lovely town of Livermore and watch a bunch of guys kill it on a mini ramp!! Mike and I met up and had a good old time at said jam at 6 Twentyone. Tons of cool people and a real positive over all vibe. Del the funky homosapien provided some rhymes and tossed some product. Brad McClain, Josh Mattson, Ryan Carpenter, Chris Jatoft, And Thomas Beeson to name a few got beasty on the ramp and tossed some sick tricks. Ron Allen put the "see I told you he can kill that" in M.C. And Bruce Rodella rounded it out with a vertical smile that could not be missed!! Good times like these really make me realize being involved in skating is the sweetness!

Went out skating with Noah the other day and was workin a grass gap when a dad and his 2 boys rolled up. He asked if it was cool if he and his kids watched for a bit. Both Noah and said totally. A few tries later Noah put down this hardflip with authority. After a pound and some hefty grinnin Noah climbed up the gap and as he passed the kids they asked the question....Noah belted out with "Spinwrench, the best board company out there!" Feels good to represent.

Thomas the Beast is still ripping it up we hit the Log Shop Sunday. The rain is keeping us off the cement but indoor ramps rule this time of year.
Check the FUNKTION
Three decks and a new one in the works. This new and up coming company is bursting into the east bay. Watch to see team riders rip up a spot in your hood soon come seen...
SPIN WRENCH can help you with getting your team or shop with the wood that just feels right under you weight. The best price and quick turn around just ask George from FUNKTION.

Yesterday afternoon I spent some time over at Mike's crib getting oriented to the process of posting his wood on the web for sale. The logical starting point is "Craigslist" Here is the link to the posting if folks are interested http://sfbay.craigslist.org/eby/spo/1534430866.html Ebay is the next leg of this mission. Another way to get local wood is to get over to Town Park in Oakland. Hood Games are events that are great for the community and make sense as a place to set up and get product out there and available. A post will follow about the next event that will be held on Martin Luther King Jr day. Stay tuned, and thanks.
