I woke up early this morning to volunteer my manpower to Tim Franken and the Lux Armor Crew for The Blading Cup Fundraiser that they put together with Themgoods. Hours before the event we worked on the huge quarter pipe as well as other obstacles which came out even better than I imagined courtesy of Chris Calkins. When I left JJ was closing in rapidly on $1,000 so it is safe to say that the event was a success. Here are some photos from the LB-CAM of the pre-event setup. We put in work!

Bully Free Zone 4 Event at Houghton Skatepark

Posted in Uncategorized on June 2, 2014 by lordbrian

It’s a huge rarity to see Rollerblading BMX & Skateboarding join forces for 1 common cause but it’s something that needs to be done more often all around the globe. And the cause that brought us together is a common problem for everyone and that is BULLYING. Eventhough it felt as if things were a bit rushed the bladers from Long Beach and beyond still represented our sport lovely for all of the spectators. With Mike Obedoza as the master of ceremonies and the Best Trick Comp judging consulted by Los, Honeytoast & myself a great ol’ time was had by all. Enjoy the random pics that I managed to snap in between rounds.
