Burnout: Texas Tech
Finally made it to the Lone Star State. Pretty Sweet Tour 2013.
Warming up in the motel parking lot with some of that tech shit.
I've heard they even have contests for this sort of thing. Can you imagine?
Ok, now we're ready.
Texas is famous for its sweet ditches and crushing heat. Got a taste of both.
Vigilante tranny up top.
Crankers was the only taker, as per usual.
Flickin' trés, crazy Canadian style!
Later, handrail logistics. That cabinet door would not be Street League approved, just sayin'.
Side trip to the river (not shown.)
We needed it though.
Moment of reflection with Austin's elder statesmen. Thanks bros.
On to the demo.
Yacht Clubbers, everywhere.
Killer bowl, marred by aluminum coping.
Not that the heavies noticed.
Ol' Bashful over here.
Crank's showstopper on the lightning rod.
Did you get it?
Uhmm, why, hello Miss.
There were babes everywhere at this stop ... wholesome sorority sisters ...
as well as more aggressive GTWYC types.
My original Texas skate buddy, Craig, even made an appearance. OG knows OG.
The cult portion of the evening.
I hope they all at least went home with a decal or two. I flew out the next day, leaving the boys with a ten-hour drive and in the competent hands of Hambone. Thanks Pretty Sweeters! Thanks kids! See you next summer everybody!
