Burnout: Spliff Bowse
Taylor Smith's surprise going-pro party
Usual assortment of longhairs in front of Dave's gallery.
Wait for it.
Everyone was there: the Brothers Lutheran
The Duff Man!
Uncle Lee, easing into a few C minuses!
Budgie Rhoades, definitely not biting anyone.
Missed a spot.
Nothing says pro like effin cake!
Splowse has been in the game for years. Kirby trips on his pre-teen vert prowess.
Don barges the baked goods but at least he made a custom T.
No such courtesy from Blake, also seen here using his girlfriend as a chair.
The Zavalas, well amped!
Ciphering the cryptic code of the top graphic.
Bless it, B.
What diabolical plans does Joey have for his new Splowse model?
Lensmen, at the ready.
False alarm. 'My bad ...'
The tension was killing us.
And then .... nah, that's only Taylor's dad, E Spliff.
There he is!
For a kid with certain levels of anxiety he took it with exceptional poise and grace.
And finally ... acceptance. Congrats Taylor!
'You think he's gonna make it?' 'That depends, is he a fighter?'
Somehow in the fracas JT got gum in his hair. I know, right!
Late Larrys, Wimer and Burke. Hey, nice jersey!
Oh yeah. This is gonna work fine.
F'sho, f'sho, f'sho.
From there the conversation grows casual - puppies and pretty eyes ...
pussy and megapixels ...
You know you can see Splowse's breakout part in Don's new Tee-Hee video, right?
Hambone with the good-looks re-up. Good looks.
Time to let it all soak in. Congratulations, T-Spliff. You're welcome, skateboarding public.
