    The Gel Lab Shred Sessions / Shark’s Log – 170613

    I’ll never forget what it felt like to attend my first slide jam. I remember the crowds of skaters and spectators alike, all sitting along the sides of the hill. I remember the sound of skateboards and sliding wheels, cheers and hollers as skaters flew by. Here and there were the individuals you recognized from photos, the seasoned guys doing all things stand-up, rarely dropping slide pucks to the ground. It was truly a spectacular thing to watch.

    This couple of weeks have been very fun for DockSessionLA. We been having a strong attendance at our Franklin slide sessions and that makes us smile. Teaching people how to slide is always a good time.

    The Gel Lab Shred Sessions / Shark’s Log – 170525

    I don’t feel like any of us really chooses to stop skateboarding; life just prioritizes it out. That’s a weighty opening statement, I know, but for each and every one of us, eventually there will come a time where you will be forced to make a choice: maybe not one big sudden decision, but a series of smaller decisions that overall limits the actual activity of skateboarding.

    Loaded Labs Interview with Longboard Envy

    We recently had the chance to chat with the folks at Longboard Envy about the Loaded Labs Menopause project. Check out their introduction below, and be sure to read the full interview here!

    "Product research and development has usually been a highly secretive thing—companies would produce prototypes within their factories, and only reveal the products to inside members. This is a totally founded strategy—many products, in the early days of the development, are flawed and can tarnish the reputation of a company if revealed to the mass public. Sometimes, prototypes are released to the public in the last few months of development, but this is mostly as a marketing strategy and hype-building exercise. That means that realistically speaking, the consumers don’t have a direct influence on an end product.

    Many of us dream to partake in this secret research and development that happens behind the scenes at many skateboard companies- I know that when I was a wee little grom, I slobbered at the thought of being let in on company secrets. If only companies would tell us what happens in their secret Area 51 warehouses…

    Oh wait, Loaded does."

    DockSessionUSA April-May

    This past 4 weeks have been really fun and interesting for DockSession. We made the transition from parking lots games to skating a hill and giving people pointers on how to slide. "Franklin" has been the home of fun sessions for more than 10 years now, it got repaved and pavement was little rough for a while. Now it's perfect.

    The Gel Lab Shred Sessions / Shark’s log – 170503

    The Gel Lab sessions are just shy of almost a decade old. That’s almost ten solid years of skateboarding on Wednesday nights with good friends and in good company. I won’t lie, we’ve lost a few people along the way, and I mean that both metaphorically and physically. Life runs its course, and just like the cycle of the seasons, faces come and go. With that being said, I’ve also come to know that some of The Gel Lab session’s longest running attendees have had their stints of disconnection as well. Sometimes even the most fervent session goers just need to ghost out for awhile. However, for me, the greatest gratification is seeing some of those long lost faces re-emerge from the abyss of obscurity. I assume the reconnection stands to represent a bit of a revival of sorts, a re-association with something that made you feel good about yourself.

    DockSessionUSA April 9th & 16th

    This past couple of sessions have been amazing. Witnessing the gradual growth of DockSessionUSA and seeing new faces as well as recognizing "the usuals" from week to week always puts a smile on my face.

    The Gel Lab Shred Sessions / Shark’s log – 170329

    Some weeks had passed since we had been back to our beloved DTLA garage of garages. I had personally spent time casing the garage during the weeks of our absence, memorizing security patterns, making sure that IF we were to return to our weekly routine, things would be relatively “stress” free. I’ll admit, I wasn’t quite sure how things would turn out. The security had been staying later and later, which in corporate terms means that someone had to make a decision in a meeting to keep these guards hanging out longer, thus costing them more in the process. So the fact that our presence had become enough of a concern for them to start having their lackeys hang around later was reason enough for us to stay away.
