buena vista pool. this is the first pool i ever skated. i rode out there in the jump seat of jason strubbings old pick up truck with him and his brother justin after work one day. i had no idea what i was doing when i got there. matt ballard said i couldnt leave until i grinded it, so i did. a photo from the session ended up being used for a skateworks/ben davis ad in the old mag creature lee and davoud used to run called concussion. this is now the last pool i skated and will most likely keep it that way, forever. full circle, 100%
i drive a lot for work. i finished up in pismo beach at about 930am this friday morning with nothing to do but end up in l.a. by tomorrow around 2pm. looking at my schedule, i decided to drive off into the remaining sunrise. easterward towards the oilfields that surround bakersfield california. the sun was bright and the clouds contrasty. i climbed a bluff atop a run away truck stop for a quick view, brake check, and piss stop. two rusty barb wire fences crossed, one old rusty nail found. the 1900s.
