News From August 2008
Directly after Nick's pro party, the dudes possed up and drove up to San Francisco for the Bust or Bail
They showed up on Corey Duffel's porch and said, 'We're staying here.'
They were just in time for a tea party he was having. What luck.
Matt B called the hammock.
They went skating and ran into some serious Loyal Pawnage. The brainwashing is getting through!
Johnny skates some thing while Nick and Matt
Then Matt decided to roll up to the thing and did something shocking
It was time for some fro-gurt.
Then they hit the BUST or BAIL comp. See the results on Thrasher.com
Matt B signs an autograph, yeah, he gives them out for free, unlike Sheckler who charges 5 bucks per 'graf.
Sinclair bought Matt B one size triple-D breast implant to suck on. But seriously, its important to stay hydrated when you are out skating. And sunblock would be a good idea too. Matt B was bogarting the implant all day and Nick started giving him the stink-eye
After a full day of ripping they guys decided to retire to a skatepark for some more fun into the night.
Whatever was going on, Matt B is down.
(See Matt B's 6-page interview in the new Transworld!!!)

Matt B and the guys try to find the place...
Nick sleeps like a baby with no idea what awaited him. He thought it was a run-of-the-mill shop appearance, but little did he know Mike Sinclair had arranged a mega-sweet 'blessed' going pro party!
A naked lady walked out and presented Nick
with his pro board adorned with all sorts of cooking paraphenalia: A bag of rare Oregano, some imported cooking Sherry, and a few beers. PHOTO KEY
(the difference between where Nick looks, and the dudes with cameras) (Nick loves Oregano)
But then Grif moved in for a snake
He got that sweet bag of Oregano! He will be cooking a hearty pasta sauce this weekend.
Oh yeah, NIck's mom
It was also a Pinata Party!
Nick swings at the Pinata with his first pro board...
Then it breaks open and everybody scrambles to get the goodies!
I have no idea what it was stocked with.
Kevin B. (AWV
) with 'the Boosh"
'Did you see that naked lady from THIS
They even had a Disc Jockey
Grif was doing some heavy lurkage
on the now clothed lady.
fuck you I'm having a good time.
Special Shirts were made just for this occasion.
Buy one you Loyal Pawns!
Yeah! Buy one! ---------Bonus Photo: A Parting shot

Prepping for the big show
All in a days work.

Jimmy, the RVCA TM drove us there. As soon as we left he shouted 'slut!'
, and pointed at this lady.
That is pretty normal here in the OC, but we were off to the IE. See Jimmy's RVCA Skate Blog
for bonus coverage.
Josh and Ed signing away. Nobody got their body signed, I guess we are not 'rock-starry' enough.
Austin was ready for some body parts, Josh, not so much. One kid had some Small ass wheels
, and Raymond was gonna give him a free pair, but took off and left the kid hanging.
Leo is just as handsome as Austin and Josh...
Spanky showed up too! That girl in the background was moving in for the kill. She wanted to go out with him, but all she ended up with was this guy
. Either way Spanky gets rad
These kids I have seen before. Their fro's are getting sweet.
Erica, Active's organizer extraordinaire, was there to oversee the festivities. I know you Toy Website Lurkers LOVE Active Erica so I tried to get some shots for you, but she is shy.
This kid made a home-made Toy Hat, hello lawsuit! Here is a close up
Just for the fans...
I found Jimmy and Leo in the swimsuit section getting weird.
The age group that the Toy team has been attracting keeps getting younger. Our 'Hello Kitty' series is coming out next month.
Each board comes with a big red lollipop?

Billy is on a whirlwind video premiere tour with Fallen for the Ride the Sky
video. They showed up in Barcelona where Diego lives, and took him to the screening.
We need more posts from Diego!!!!!!

Yesterday, A-Stone and a bunch of homies piled into a car and drove there. Purposely getting real hot, so the water would feel super good.
Always wear sunblock, it is important because by the time these guys are old, skin cancer will be happening to 5 year olds...
Posted August 22nd, 2008 by I wish I had went! Bummer!

Josh Harmony back from a whirlwind Fallen Video premiere tour comes to shred the ramp.
Stu, Jimmy's right hand man, is so happy that spontaneous man-love erupts like an ejaculating volcano.
Grant and Grif are only slightly amused by this, but really amped on Olympic Gymnastics
, especially Shawn Johnson
. They hate 'The Nasty'
I'm not sure Austin has been watching the Olympics.
Before the session, they got sidetracked by new magazines.
Check out Mike Burnett's Burnout
, its great!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY AUSTIN! Today is his B-Day!

With the HB Park gone, the new spot appears to be the Volcom Park
. Austin has been going quite a bit.
Rob slid down the chimney to get there.
Grif got caught modeling...
So did Grant.

Josh skates the LB park while a group of kids slip in their BGP's
Grant back-tails and the BGP's are getting more noticeable...
Whoa! The BGP's took over.
So Grif just decided to start taking portraits.
He found some willing models. Bonus photo of Grant poking a Dead Pelican
with an oar.

While trying to skate a spot some sketchy luchador harassed us.
The crew was put at ease by Grant's air piano.

Came up on a JLay mission. He was already shredding when we arrived.
A little mangy dog went nuts on us as we entered the school.
Look what it did to Grifs paws!
Austin talked to Braveheart about some protection.
He teleported him to the relative safety of Mt. Grif Dog...
And made Grif pee in a corner for territory's sake.
The evening ended casually.

Searched through some urban wastelands with A-Stone.
Scaled Mount Grif Dog.
Seu 180'ed around some shit bags.
Grif gave us his smoldering...
Getting into some new trends.
Like Japanese drumming.
(Thanks Kevin for posting! Now it's Ed T. droppin' in for a quick announcement...)
Hey everyone, it's Kevin's Birthday! ----------HAPPY BIRTHDAY KEVS!!!!!!!

One of the stars of the evening, Josh Harmony and me shot by the illustrious Grant Brittain
Another ex-Toy rider sighting, Elissa Steamer lookin' tight.
Ran into Ben Gilley who has received an interesting tattoo
I was hugged by a drunken Tommy Guns in a throng of sweaty skaters being pushed out by security...
The master of the evening, Billy Marks, coming through with an EPIC part.
My favorite parts to watch were Matt B and Josh H's, Slash's, and Chris Coles. But the stunner of the night was how good James Hardy is, and how amazing Billy Marks is. See MUCH MUCH better coverage of the evening over at Burnout
by Mike Burnett...
Who do you think will have the best part? Comment below!

Young child getting his face stomped on while simultaneously getting stabbed with a bayonet.
Baby getting thrown into a fire: priceless.
A sequence of Rambo shooting a massive machine gun at a dude 2 feet away from him.
He explodes like a bag filled with strawberry jam. (note the decapitated body laying in the truck)
Leg amputation using a machete, straight through two shin bones, with spurting blood.
Thanks Diego! Get well soon, I'm getting scared!

Kincade was there to document it.

Just released! : L. Kincade #14
Rob went all Sun God on a blunt. Blonds really do have more fun.
He revitalized himself through meditation.
Grant and Austin thought he was being weird.
Never one to be left out, Grant got rad
on the bank, too.
The spot was lousy with rubbish.
Poor Brian was made to ride in the trunk. I think Kincade
needed some space from his creative juices.
As you can see, the juices are flowing.
Some psycho child went and re-created Nick's part
from Suffer the Joy in a video game... Creepy, but cool.

Butch has been resting up and keeping it real, watching the new Rambo
movie on repeat. With that sort of motivation he'll be up and slashing
in no time.
He was amped when P-Stone and Noro came by for a visit after his surgery.
In the meantime he'll be checking out his old Video Parts
and Kincade 13

Since nobody made the five person cut to the finals, today's post will highlight some of the finer shots by Mike Sinclair, TM extraordinaire.
JLay with a cruntslide into 15th. And a lipslide
gets smithy while a long lens crane gets the shot. Some bonus Nick: a Front Blunt
, a 5-0
and a Back-Lip.
Johnny and Billy
made a pact to make the top 5 next year. Watch out, Nyjah. Heres Billy doing a KF Board...
Nick sat back for some sage advice from X Games champ and former teammate Elissa Steamer. Maybe next year he'll take down Sheckler.

Got picked up for the X Games.
Had to check in my skate.
Magic pointed the way to the ripping. He loves Billy.
Billy was battling it out on the course. Hot as balls.
If you look close you can see Nick frontside 360ing during his heat.
This lady totally missed Appleyard's trick just so she could stare at her baby.
After the street we all went in to scope the Big Air.
D Way went down.
It was actually a little boring, but a fine crew of people make it all worthwhile.
