Yesterday we had some decent weather and so some of the crew decided to visit this tennis court spot. This guy Mike from NY brought a parking block and joined the session. It’s crazy what a day of 55 degree weather will do to make you seize the day.

Kevin Carlson is an OG member of the Southport Skate Crew. He made this graphic for us. What a moment.
How will we ever make it through the cold hard winters?
I took these photos with my grandma’s old Canon Snappy20 that I inherited after she passed away. I’ve never shot with it before so the photos aren’t very good. I also developed the film and printed these myself so that may also be to blame. Winter is here in Wisconsin but it’s actually been pretty tame so far and I’ve managed to get outside to street skate a few times this month which normally doesn’t happen. I’m sitting on a few rolls of film from some of the sessions but I’m waiting on finishing a few more before I develop them.
The next run of boards should be here this week. I’m excited to drop some new stuff on the world. This next run will have a new graphic and there will be a couple of new shapes. Just in time to miss Christmas.
It’s been a hectic summer. We’ve been working on filming a full part for Dusty and it’s for sure going to be a god damn barn burner. Seeing a homie tackle some of the stuff he’s been trying has been lighting a fire under everyone’s asses to get busy.
I was out in SF for two weeks working and skating. No footage because I’m the filmer usually so I got nothing. But my friend, and artist extrordinare, Matt Bajda took this photo of me at a sign painter art show that popped off in the Sunset.
I’m hoping that I can get out there and do some more filming of some of the other guys and possibly put out a Broke part that showcases everyone who reps us and maybe showcase some of the awesome skateboarding that goes down in our area.
Another project I’ve been getting stuff together for is a possible Broke ‘zine. I’m not sure when that will come out or how it’s going to look but I have a lot of graphics, drawings, and photos that I can’t put out as quickly as I’d like. I might do an interview or two to put the homies names out there. I’ll probably post the interviews on this site because things on the internet get more eyes on it.
Also there’s another ad coming out in the next issue of SKATE JAWN mag.
Just a quick update for you all. Keep skating and see you soon.
I just got three rolls of film back of stuff I shot at the Sky High block party. Here’s some of that good good.
