Warehouse jam video and photos

Our buddy Zoli snapped some sick photos at the warehouse jam. In this one, Totally team manager Patrick Guidotti snaps a sick lien air.

Team rider James Pitonyak isn't afraid of sketchy street obstacles.

Team rider Travis McCormack got busy in the deep end.

Warehouse Weekend

Just a quick re-cap on Saturday's warehouse extravaganza:
We were super stoked that the rain held out until late in the day. It arrived just as McRad was about to begin their set, forcing them indoors and onto the rollout deck of the bowl. This last-minute adaptation became inspiration, their proximity pumping up everyone's adrenaline and pushing the sesh to a phenomenal level of insanity. My friend Brad said it was definitely in his top 5 sessions list ever and I definitely concur. When they busted out their classic tune "Weakness," everyone went nuts. If you skated in the 80's, you definitely saw Powell's "Public Domain" video and you understand. Back in the day, I used to tape those songs by holding a tape recorder up to the television just so I could listen to those songs while I was skating my backyard ramp. 20 years later and I'm skating one of the sickest spots, and McRad is there playing live. I told Chuck Treece it was a religious experience for me. He smiled and shook my hand. Thanks again Chuck, thanks to the band, and thanks to all my friends for coming out.

I would like to thank everyone who helped make this awesome day possible. Scott Kmiec, Chuck Treece, Steve Miller and Exit Skateshop, Superbuick, PoPo, DJ Solomonic, and all of the great people who came out to show support for the warehouse, Totally, and skateboarding.


There will be more pictures and video posted as they come in, so be sure to check back!

Philthy strikes again

Totally team rider and wayward traveler "Philthy" Phil Jackson just sent us these shots from out in the bush. Here's a pretty sweet shot of a smith grind in a California pool.

This no-comply pole jam back home at FDR is also nice.
