Hey everybody, if you’re a fan of this blog and want to see more of this face,

Mad props if you know where my shirt is from

Mad props if you know where my shirt is from

I have a huge favor to ask of you. I have entered DreamJobbing’s contest for Nitro Circus USA Tour Reporter, and I could use all the likes and comments. Voting ends April 15 so check out my video:

Thanks for your support!

It’s back to school for a lot of you, and since we can’t always take our boards and bikes with us, we have to find other ways to express ourselves. When I was in school, I had difficulties finding skate/bike/moto-themed supplies. However, times have changed. Sci-fi Hun recently showed me a link for a Birdhouse SkateDrive, a USB flash drive in the shape of a skateboard deck.
You can get them at Walmart, Office Max, or Amazon, and if you prefer snow or surf, Action Sports Drives has some for you too. They’re the perfect accessory if you’re an action sports nerd like me.

My other Facebook Finding comes from Lady Gaga herself. Who knew the pop diva could hang ten? She posted the picture with the caption, “yeah thats me. no heels baby.”

Perhaps “Facebook Postings” would be a better title, but I like alliteration. It’s not very common for my friends to post action sports-related links and videos to either their facebook wall or mine. However, in the past few days, I’ve come across two instances.

The first was a video that many of you may have already seen on Youtube or Yahoo: the first ever triple backflip on a BMX bike. It was done by 24-year-old New Zealand rider, Jed Mildon. Even if you’ve already seen the clip, which is from Mildon’s helmet cam, check out the one I posted below. It shows a spectator’s perspective, as well as all the hardwork he put into pulling off this trick.

The other Facebook Finding comes from my fashion designer buddy, Naomi. She posted a feature on Japanese sculptor Haroshi (with a bit of Lingo Lolz). He uses old skateboard decks to create pieces with multiple layers of colors or mosaic patterns. He also adds a truck to the inside of each sculpture to “give [it] soul” (Haroshi: Artworks).
