Burnout: From The Top
Posted: May 15th, 2009
This was a driving around type of trip.
So it paid to bring supplies.
The very tip top of the Indian School ditch.
Pausing to bask in its majesty….
This thing: totally awesome.
Holy shit! Is that spine wearing sunglasses?
That must be the coolest spine ever!
Don’t go back there.
‘And then Riky Barnes totally carved over him ……’
Don’t worry. We hit handrails, too.
Alex had a ball.
and hubbas .
This thing landed into a sand box.
Tony held shot gun to keep his eye out for new spots.
And Jamie, well, his tracking sense is so keen, some say he’s part owl.
Tony took a spin down Oasis and found this uncharted territory.
Alex snaps an ollie.
Lutheran blindsides it.
And then a sensible stop at Whole Foods. Wait. Is a $9 juice sensible?
And then ... Ahhhh.
In the end, the session sometimes disintegrates into grown men killing ants.
That, and ill-advised sandwich choices.
Still, a totally bitchin’ trip. I’ve got a movie for monday. Thanks, dudes.

3/13/2020Phelper took an all-time crew of heavy hitters to Chile in January 2019 for what turned out to be his final HELLRIDE. As he fired up the session, legends like Koston, GT, and Ishod took things to the next level. It’s been a year since his physical form moved on, but the Old Man is STILL WATCHIN.

3/05/2020The Bay Area scene lets loose on Treasure Island’s new concrete walls to ring in another year of the survival and growth for the DIY oasis. TNT, a bunch of young transition terrors, some bands and a pit turn the event into a full blown bash. Here’s to an even bigger fourth.
2/13/2020Guy Mariano’s new pro truck is a cause for celebration, so Thunder hosted a private, invite-only skate jam at his park in North Hollywood with some heavy rippers, cold bevs and a taco truck. Plunkett got some tag-along birthday cheer too!
