Last week in Mexico.

I've been to this rally three years in a row and it's a treat.
The town of Guanajuato is amazing and the locals are so stoked on watching cars fly by.

For those of you who are fans of rally or Ken you should read this article Speed Hunters did from Mexico.

Evan Smith

For some reason there's been a lot of skating since I started bloggin again. Not sure why.
This new clip with Evan is pretty nice.

New spots and kinda new way of reading the terrain.

New Gino clip. OMG.

When he did the bs slide and lifted the rear wheels over the crack I think I might have giggled out loud.

A few years ago I was bored on a train in Sweden and ripped a few clips of YouTube and did this Gino edit.

Great skate clip

Clever clip with Kyle Leeper.
I used to do clips like this back in the days of vhs editing after watching a similar clip of Mark Gonzales doing a half cab to a bs ollie in Blind Video Days but they were annoying and not very clever.

This edit on the hand is very well executed.

Following Kyle from predatory bird on Vimeo.

Go to 3:24 in this clip to watch the early 90's Gonz version.

Still no internet.

Still in Australia

This past week I've had access to what Australians call internet at a 5 star hotel ($25 / day) and since that didn't work I bought a "4G" router for $150 to try and access the web. 
The first night I left it on (to charge) with no devices connected to to it and the next day it didn't work any more. Apparently here you use the internet regardless if you're using in or not, by the minute kind of.
So I called and asked what was going on. They said I had used up my 5 gb last night while it was charging. 
I said that was a really bad set up. Anyway I got my 5 gb back but then fell asleep with the router on, so now I've used 10gb in 48 hours and I haven't even used more than maybe 100mb.

Leaving Adelaide now. Currently at the airport trying to send emails. The wifi here is what you'd expect.

Lewis Marnell

Most skaters know that Lewis passed away recently.
I stumbled upon this new clip today.
The fact that I'm in Australia made the clip seem even more important.
