Down Days

6.20.2011


Here’s a few photos from Newburyport, MA the other day – super fun and some sunshine never hurts. This was my first try with some of the sequencing – which is a work in progress.

Usually, when a beer distribution plant is closed down, it’s a sad day. Not so for skaters in Nashua – the old Budweiser distribution warehouse has recently been renovated and turned into a 25,000 square foot indoor park. This place has everything from a “kids” section to some Danny Way style drops. Having seen the other skate parks around the area – it was refreshing to see a professional indoor setup for everyone – for once, that wasn’t made entirely of sand piles and “QuikCrete.” It’s a couple bucks to skate and the cost is well worth it. That same weekend back on the Seacoast, I met up with Ryan and Andrew down at the Salisbury park for a mellow session after work. A couple other kids came out and just dismantled this little park, and quite honestly showed the rest of us up with ease. Here is a taste of what The Granite Skate has to offer.


Down Days | Part 1 – April 21, 2011

In between swells here, looks like Saturday might be surfable and then something way out like on Friday of next week. The sun was shining when I woke up this morning, it’s been so dark and rainy lately and I have been dying to use my new ND filter some more. This would require a sunrise or sunset – actually being able to see the sun going down would be nice. I took a little trip down to Salisbury skatepark with my buddy Mike before sunset – check out the clip below. Scored a few shots during the sunset but nothing I’m really that stoked about.
I am stoked that ESM (Eastern Surfing Mag – Easternsurf.com) has posted Part 5 of the Spring Verses series, thanks to Ryan Dunfee and Nick over at ESM. I’m stoked to see it up there and hope they can post Part 6. And hopefully we get some waves here so I can get out therrreeee.
