Broken

Image Description
We went across the bridge to San Pedro yesterday. Johnny, Nick and Fletch skated some plastic tables before we collected some good times at the Double Set School. Then we went to check out an epic sunset at a weird church in Palos Verdes, after which we jumped the car and it got broken. We waited for a tow truck to pick us up and take us back across the bridge.

Blood Dyed

Image Description
Johnny was having a mellow day, jumping things here, jumping things there. Then he took a slam, cut open his hand and started bumming. Sometimes you ride the board, sometimes the board rides you.

Blast Off

Josh looks on at first a bit jealously then happily as Dylan Reider takes Grif on a ride in his Bat-Cycle. Apparently Dylan is always Batman and Grif is either Robin or Bat-Girl depending on his mood. They went vroom.

Juicy Johnny

Image Description
J-Lay took a tumble the other day and cheese grated his palms off. He was bombing an epic ditch when he hit a crack and took it to the body. Being back in the game means getting back with the slams. Heal up soon, Mr. Layton.

Be like Johnny and Suffer the Joy of skateboarding.

Bennett Stops Traffic

Image Description
Matt almost got his board run over by an SUV while skating in Moreno Valley some weeks ago. The driver rolled down the window and cursed at him, but Mr. B just walked away with an ear to ear grin and chuckle. Not much gets him down.

Go ahead, suffer.

Austin jams out in Josh's garage right before leaving for the wonderful world of Oz or Australia. Hopefully he meets all the challenges there with a sharp brain, a heart of steel, and a stoic courage.

Trapasso Gears Up

Image Description
After heeding Ed's advice the other day, Nick sets up and prepares for a wave of mutilation. When he gets going there's nothing to do but sit back and whistle. Also in Nick news, it's not up yet but keep your eyes peeled for a Trapasso web interview over at Thrasher.

There's some suffering to be done.

Diego!!!

Image Description Here
When Diego comes State-side he's always on his own mission. Barely seen but always busy, he makes it to every sesh and does his taxes to boot. Check out Burnett's blog over at Thrasher for a more comprehensive documentation of his visit.
As always, Suffer The Joy.

Josh, milliseconds before biting the dust.

Image Description Here
One of many slams he took that day. We went back to the ditch where the cop kicked us out, and got the photos I needed. HA!

On a side note, check out this Asshole's video for his Christian band.
The world needs less of these fucktards in it.

You thought this post was about some kid losing his tooth, but really it is about some impostor out there in cyberspace posing as some kind of Fake Griffin, while the Real Griffin is at the HB park.

Coming soon to Suffer the Joy.com...

Image Description Here
Billy Marks lays waste to all the cheap imitators out there by coming out with Billy's Balls, from Chode to Shaft (or some other title yet to be figured out.) It will be all you enjoyed about the first Billy's Balls, but this time with less hair, and more polish and shine. You will see what pro skaters on Toy Machine do with their spare time.
