I had been working in a small mom & pop sporting good store that bought and sold used sporting equipment. I had gotten the job as a way to earn some meager cash over the summer while school had been on recess. The owner was, often times, in a drunken stupor in his little upstairs office, while my co-worker and I ran the store.
It's been such a fun month for DockSession! Franklin Sundays are growing strong and more people are starting to come. We had an awesome little session in Vancouver before the Giant's Head Freeride weekend. Hosted by Flatspot Longboard Shop, the crew skated through Vancouver and stopped at several spots to hang out and share with the locals. Here's a little recap of some fun clips we've filmed at Franklin.

Skateboarding has been the focus of my life for the last decade. Whether it was playing an active role as a photographer/writer contributing "content" to the hype machine or being the eye candy in front of the lens, I've managed to carve out a double existence within this small humble realm, and there is not a day that goes by that I don't acknowledge the fact that I've been extremely fortunate to have been able to live such a life. With that said, if there is one thing you realize through all of this, it's that stagnation is the swan song to our industry. The moment we accept complacency within our spectrum, is the moment when everything begins to unravel.
