With age and the inevitable injuries, work and families you can get a bit stale and end up only skating the same old places, when you do pull your board out of the cupboard. The idea of the project is to get stoked by going out and finding new places to skate, like you used to 20 years ago when life was easy. So, from one birthday to the next you go out and skate the number of spots that corresponds with your age. I was 45 last birthday, so I'm aiming for 45 spots this year. I'm on 28 so far and enjoying the challenge that arises every time I go somewhere new. There are a couple of guys in the UK doing it and putting their photos and videos up on blogs. Check mine out here http://project4545.blogspot.com.au/ If you do give it a go, please send me a message and join the facebook group.

Not sure the world is ready to see me 5050 stall 39 different curbs but the concept is cool.

well i'm at about 8 tricks.  gotta get cracking if i'm going to make this. i guess i could have more, but i'm really trying to get all street footy. no parks. unless i'm really close to my goal, then i might put 1 or 2 in there.

i have a little over a month left and things are looking really good.  finding new spots, hanging out with my bros has been sick.  i think we've been inspiring some of the younger dudes to get out and skate more.  we took some kids to a few spots that they've never seen before.  good times and no park footy!

Right on Rob, are you getting this shit on film or just burned into the back of your skull?  Either way, get er done or some other positive reinforcement.

yes i am.  as the kids say, i'll be releasing a full part next month haha!  yea my friends have been helping me reach the goal, getting me out every weekend, filming and just general stokage!  i'm actually really siked about it.  the parks were really bumming me out and i have a renewed love affair again with the streets just because of this. 

snow has been threatening all week long and i'm hoping it stays away for just one more weekend.  a parked car has been keeping me from one last spot and i think we might have figured out his schedule to hit it up when he's gone lol!
