Always into getting rowdy with the Destroy dudes so I jumped at the chance to camp it up with Gnarlos, Arimoto and Sean down at Sea Otter. After a solid sleepover of brews and bikes I snapped a few photos of Kenny and his rig before we bounced back to Sacramento. Nature jibs, viking portraits and a rape van if you’ve ever seen one. Rad weekend as they all should be…
The homie Kenny Arimoto aka Deadwood announced today that there will be a second Man Up! FGFS event. I was out at the last one and despite some issues with the cops it was a hell of an event. Peep some video from the first one below and check back for more on this…you can bet we’ll be there.
Was watching some old freestyle flicks earlier and this one came out. Still gold in here from the Destroy dudes a few years back. Brutal bails in the first half alone make it worth watching again.
I remember thinking how perfect this iMiNUSD flick was when it dropped a couple years back. The music and shots just work so well with Kenny‘s style. Helps a bit too that he’s been hitting big boy rails for longer than most. Hands down one of the best dudes around and still killing it. #billsorbust
A lot of morning I spend looking for some random clips to get the ball rolling. Stoked to have spotted this Arimoto quick one to mix in with a couple other gems. Flatland bits like that second one make it looks so sick. So smooth. Last bit is just some SF roling around type stuff. Haven’t been in the city on a board in a whileee.
Not only was I beat after the Trickcat but yesterday was a sick day spent on the couch. That means some shit needs to go up from yesterday. Luckily some peeps sent stuff over so now I just gotta dish it out. Here’s one Kenny shot over of him Destroying. Good stuff in the mix at his local park with some techy grindage. Love that bike throw…i can relate haha. Dig this dude!
For the pro event Sunday I planned on getting a bunch of photo/video to toss on here but I ended up judging instead. Had a damn good time cheering the dudes on and seeing what they had for us. I was able to get a few photos from the Judges spot above the quarters that are going up here. Also going to be getting a video up of the best trick jam that went down after…I was down on the ground for that haha. Click through for all of what I got.
Had such a good time today at Man Up!today in Palo Alto. Met up at the caltrain station about 11 and headed to Stanford to watch so many people get buck. There were heads from sf, stockton, san jose, sacramento (aside from me) and a few other spots around the state. Way too many sick tricks went down to be listed went but trust me…the Destroy dudes made it one hell of a time. Dawson’s bar off the Chrome Van at the end of the day was huge. Everyone who rode the spots threw down. Kids were going harder at this event than ever. I only snapped a few photos because I was in video mode most of the day. Ill get to that tomorrow so in the meantime enjoy these few flicks I managed to get. Huge thanks to Kenny and the Destroy dudes and BHSK for having me be a part of this! Bed time now more tomorrow.
Alex and I will be heading out to this to check it and cover it. Looks like there’s going to be some heavy hitters coming through for it. Bound to be some wild stuff at this with everyone pushing each other to go real big. Be there if you like seeing hammers all day! Check the event page and invite your friends.
Kenny was one of the dudes to watch this year so you know he went hard. He was the only other person going for flips out in SF and generally just charging. He totaled one frame on a backflipper attmept, knocked himself out on a rail hop and still had the chance to toss in a sick acid drop from the judges booth. His spill had everyone cringing and hoping for the best…like a true champ he made came back to watch the event after being taken out on a stretcher. Was way psyched he wasn’t seriously injured! Such a boss. Destroying.
