Clay’s Big Day
A rainy day Combi sesh was the perfect excuse to get the Madness team together. Weiss had everyone meet at The Corner bakery next to the park for a “team meeting” and you can guess where it went from there.
Weiss, Grosso and the calm before the storm—during the storm
Clay Kreiner was the first to show up
“Combi is over there, right?“
Then the sudden influx of bros
Trey Wood and Alex Perelson
First order of business…
Clay didn’t have a clue
Finally starting to sink in
Josh Stafford and Jimmy Wilkins made the drive up for the surprise
Welcome to the pro ranks
You’ve definitely earned it. Hugs all around
Pat, Lance and Salba heard the news from Grosso and had to come see for themselves
“Is this textured paint? An embossed board? How’d you do it?”
Quick group photo out front
Time to make this news public
Instantly flooded with FaceTimes
A quick beer with Gregson, then it was time to hit the Combi
Omar sighting in the parking lot. Never know who’s going to be at the Vans park on a rainy day
Shit! Forgot about the waivers
Clay tweaks a grasser into the finger
Trey Wood, egg in the square
Alex blasts a lien in the circle
Fardell took his nosegrind tailgrab into the shallow
Clay with the ol’ heelflip money grab.
You know Omar was hyped on that one. Congrats again, Clay!
1/11/2021Spending more time in the air than on the ground, Clay clashes with the riskiest ramps in the game paying homage to vert giants before him—Hawk, Way and Sluggo to name a few. This part ain’t for the faint of heart.
1/05/2021Last year was the worst, which means we’ve got an extra-stacked pack of T-Eddys for the skate world’s gaffes and god-awful moments. Plenty of praise in there, too! Don’t get pissed if you made the list.
11/23/2020Shea Donavan, Archer Braun and Jimmy start with a trek to Baldy and end their over-nighter at the Vert Jungle for Thunder. Skating’s better together.
11/11/2020On the mend from a broken leg, Larry tosses up head-high money grabs and slides across every coping block in sight. Pure stoke has no age limit.
11/11/2020Jimmy and Alex barge the Birdman’s ramp, smacking disasters from ungodly heights for Bronson.
