Croatia 2002

with one comment

I got this amazing opportunity to go to Croatia back in 2002 to ride trials with some fellow Ammurricans and zee Germans. It was a ridiculously cool experience and it certainly changed my life in the sense that it took me out of my white-bread high school surroundings and showed me that the real world is out there. Also that people out there have real problems like “A decade ago, my house was blown up during a bloody civil war but now we’ve rebuilt and kept moving forward” instead of “Whaaa, my dad made me pay for my own haircut last week!”

The hotel where we stayed was called Stella Mare and it was great. Teo was the guy who owned it and he and his family ran the place and cooked amazing fresh food for us and just generally made sure we felt welcome and right at home. He was such a great and caring person and I miss the place. He’s the smooth headed fellow on the right.

 

 

He arranged for me to be set up for an interview with the Croatian news after we did a big trials demo in the town square in Jelsa.

I got to spend some time with some good people from back home like Ryder Okumura and Tony “Hella” Fernandez.

 

And certain got my ass handed to me by plenty of German riders.

And got to know a few of them like Maurice and Felix (not pictured as he was paradoxically too smooth for light to reflect off of him).

I’ll go back someday, maybe to retire.

Probably won’t be retiring any time soon though thanks to this stupid BFA I have…

Sometimes You Are Tripping.

Every single time that my girlfriend’s dog stumbles or misses a step, I ask her, “Bitch, why you trippin?”

Here’s what she looks like when we dress her as a hipster:

Flat Land And Street.

leave a comment »

I have had numerous conversations for the past 4 years with just about every person that I’ve ever been on a bmx ride with about how much I’d love to see more flatland integrated into street riding. Well, it’s finally happened and the results are god damn glorious.

This video is “old news” on internet timelines now but I’ll gladly come back to it every so often because it’s so damn fresh.

Best Search Referal Ever.

leave a comment »

I was peeping my search engine redirect results on here the other day when I noticed that I got one lone visitor to TNB from what is surely the best search term ever.

Some how this person, through some kind of glitch in google’s algorithms, came to this site via: “Blackest dude ever”

Costume Confusion

leave a comment »

Still not sure what to do for good olde Hallow’s Ween.

Would be fun to do something Adventure Timey with the lady but then I fear we’d end up looking like the extra-super-weirdos at a comicon event.

 

This would take too much effort and is also pretty gross.

 

We don’t have enough people to get the whole cast from Sabotage rolling:

But whatever I do, it will likely not be as offensive as 2006:

I guess there is still some time left to figure this out.

Maybe I can just go as Gatsy and then get shot by a jealous husband?
