Added the 4 parks I checked out in florida to the skatespots page. The legendary Kona Skatepark, Team Pain's St Augustine, and south FLA's West Palm Beach.
The last park is Team Pain's brand new masterpiece Oviedo. This park just opened up in late July and might be the best park on the east coast. A new park in Orlando just opened up last weekend and the locals were saying that was going to be better so I will have to wait and see.
Put up the 3 parks I checked out in Colorado. Its about damn time a Grindline park showed up on this site. Check out Trinidad. I was also lucky enough to sneak in a session at the Vans park in Westminster before if closed. Denver was the other park I checked out on that trip.
Busy month. I went on trips to Colorado, Florida, and Michigan. I have over a dozen parks to add to the list. Stay Tuned!
Three more skatespots put up today like I promised. Clairemont, Fontana, and Upland. Now on to the Colorado parks.
Don't worry, I haven't stopped updating the site again. I should have three more Cali skatespots added by tomorrow. Next is on to the Colorado parks I checked out recently.
Breen Rourke sent me these photos of an old maryland ditch called Still Waves. It is supposed to be filled in with rocks now. I am going to try and check it out this weekend to see whats up.
Added the PalaPipes to the skatespots page.
A group in DC are building a bowl using all recycled materials. On Saturday June 28th at 9pm in Arlington, Virginia they are having a benefit with some bands. Go check it out and help the terrain spread. Check out the flyer
Added the Hesh Bowl to the skatespots page.
Tim Cline sent me some new old photos of the falcon. I am really really stoked when I get stuff like this. Check em out here. I think Tim is getting ill in 2 of them. Go badger him on the messagebored about his get up. His name is microedger
I went ahead and put the new skatespots in place. Sucks for you if its slower. I gave you the chance to let me know and since no one really said anything I take it that its not much slower.
I also added two new spots. Palaround and The Pink Square have been added. Check them and get pisssssed. More spots comming soon.
I need some help out there from you people on dial up connections. I really want to go ahead and make the switch to the new skatespots page but I do not know how much of a bitch it is going to be to load. What I need is you to clear your cache on your browser and go to the New Skatespots page and see how long it takes to load. Next I need you to clear your cache again and go to the Old Skatespots page and see how much faster that loads. Once you have done that email me at riskus[at]criticalthrash[dot]com and let me know the difference.
I started to redo each spots page today by adding a new spot in the new format. Check out Milwaukee's Four Seasons skatepark.
Messing with the skatespots page even more. Check it now at startpage5 and let me know how long it takes to load with a dial up connection.
I also redid the links page a little bit to go with this page and the tentative new skatespots page.
Playing with a new layout for the skatespots page. Also looking at new colors. Go check out startpage4 and let me know what you think. Keep in mind it is not even close to working yet. Most of the links dont work properly.
Posted a bunch of shitty photos of the bowl bash on the messageboard.
Updated the links page.
Messageboard is back up. The database was fucked. I dont know why. Hopefully it doesnt happen again. Everything that was posted after midnight is gone though.
Got back from the bowl bash tonight. Met tons of twisted dirty bags and moped ar ound. Tooks some photos that I will be getting back tomorrow and posting on the messageboards. Eventually, I plan on writing a shitty attempt at an article on i t and combine it with some junks and put out a paper zine too. Maybe I will get it printed on toilet paper.

Well I'll be fucked. I am actually thinking about working on my site. I have tons of photos, some dating back to last year, to scan and put up but I am lazy. Site redesign coming maybe... for now check the links page. It is a work in progress.
I have been slacking on the site. My car has been busted for close to a month now so that slows me up some. I should have some new pics of riverdale and skatopia up pretty soon aswell as this new ditch I was directed to the other day. Stay tuned for that.
I got this video made by Brian Lilla today. Its done in all super-8 and is mostly pool, pipe, and hill riding. It is a lot like fruit of the vine and probably is just as good. I suggest you get a copy by emailing email@example.com.
When I went to the shady grove ditch last saturday, I met a local ripper named Tom. He showed some blatant localism pulling out too many trick to keep track of. I really would like to see him skate something bigger.
Check the photos.

A week ago I went to Asbury with Scott Greene and I took some of my best pictures yet. They still might not be professional or whatever but I like them. Check them out.
My site is also a "featured link" on www.teamgoon.com. I think that's pretty cool.
I went to louisville on saturday and took some terrible pictures. Go here to check them out.

I need a new logo for the site. Piratical Skates finaly started using the skull, that was created for him anyway, and I do not want to have the same logo. So if anyone out there wants to draw something up, send it to me and I might use it. I might make stickers and shirts and use your graphic.
I put some pictures of the Skatoia Bowl Bash up in a directory for your viewing pleasure. I might make a web page for them eventually. For now check them out
