Kevin Carlson is an OG member of the Southport Skate Crew. He made this graphic for us. What a moment.
The 22nd Big Ollie Olympics happened October 27th. I shot some 120mm photos. It was weird to not have it at the Southport Board Shop parking lot but it still had the classic BOO spirit. Janky obstacles and crusty ground has always been a staple. The GOAT ramp never made it. It was still fun.
This parking block was donated by the American Legion Post 180. I painted it and did a few coats of lacquer and drove it to the skate park I grew up skating at. The park is so neglected and poorly designed from the jump. But we still manage to have fun there and make the best of it.
Just putting a block on this mellow pyramid makes a world of difference. A million trick possibilities have been opened up where there once was limitation. Hopefully the city won’t take it away.
Skateboarding taught me that if I’m not happy to go and make my own happiness. If there’s something wrong to do something about it. Thank you skateboarding.
Dusty is moving to Arizona in about a week. We’ve been in the streets filming all summer for a full part for him. It’s been a trip working on it and we didn’t even accomplish half of what we set out to do. But between him getting married, working 40 hours a week, and traveling to Arizona to set up his new life; he hammered out a lot.
Dusty has always supported and pushed Broke Skateboards since day one. I don’t know what we are going to be without him but I know he’ll keep killing it no matter where he is. Happy trails Dusty, you’re one of the good ones.
