Hopefully you have heard by now, but in case you haven't, we are having one hell of a shindig next weekend in Salt Lake City. Everyone is invited. We will have free tacos, drinks, Gods Revolver will be playing a set and you can skate the mini ramp, and we will be running some fun challenges organised by Andy Carter (Pangea Speed) and be giving away one rad prize from each of our sponsors. Cant wait!
A couple of weekends ago on the Analog Run my Chinese battery decided it didn't want to play any more. I had gotten as far as Ojai, about 80 miles from my starting point, and the shovelhead went from miss firing to full on shut down mode in the space of a few minutes. Jason and I investigated the problem in a convenient gas station and determined it was indeed a dead battery. Jason took off on his bike and returned 30 minutes later with a (also Chinese) replacement. I was back on the road again. Forward wind to the journeys end at Lopez Lake and there was Eric from Anti Gravity batteries putting up his tent. Oh how he laughed when I told him what had happened. Anti Gravity are Lithium-Ion batteries made in Compton, CA, They are tiny, powerful and will not break, an amazing bit of kit. He kindly sent me one over and it's now nestled in my oil tank and working like a charm. You even get chunks of self adhesive foam padding in the box with the battery to take up any slack left after removing the old piece of shit lead one. I reckon every bike should run one these little beauties.
Hope alls well in your camp. I've been in LA for the last month and hit up your LEVI's party with the stripping babes and the cinnamon tequila- pretty trippy stuff. So cool to see you guys. I've got a little blog content for you if you're interested; I've just released a new video short called MALIBU with men's skate apparel brand HUF - a first and female joy fuelled collab for HUF where their product is being advertised on women (an angle that many Skate brands have started coming to me for). It's playful, sexy, empowering and sweet, and has been pulling in high volume views since we released it.. Maybe you're interested in taking a look, it's pretty hot, easy blog filler.
Very excited to announce details for the Dice|BoltsAction Issue 58 release party. We've teamed up with @supertopsecret and will be taking over their insane spot on the evening of 10.25 from 8PM-1AM.

See you real soon! #BoltsAction #DiceMagazine #SuperTopSecret #SLC #GodsRevolver
Earlier this year I was lucky enough to be at this event in Germany. Some people didn't like the new location compared to previous years when it was in Bottrop but I thought it was excellent. Good times indeed. Lagged on posting these pics 'cos I got caught up in Instagram. The ironic thing is I think blogs are way better. So anyway, here are some belated pics. Roll on next year.
