Yesterday was a rainy day in SF, no Day 9 update but instead let’s see what’s going on around the world. Starting with this nice capture by Jim McKay of Ed Jodie at the One Love Jam last weekend.
A couple of thoughts passed through my head watching this well produced OG Flatland session this morning that I feel like I have to share. Number 1, my apologises to Jim McKay missing this the first time round. Number 2, if you are blessed enough to have an amazing scene like this.
I mean this looks like an average session without calling anyone, take advantage of this, hold jams and get togethers and grow the scene. Good riding from Ed Jodie, Ruben Castillo, Chris Anderson, Kenny Boucher, Bobby Burge, and Julio Cotto not to mention the quality of videography is really good with a nice tune to boot. Don’t sleep on this one.

Day 5 of the trip, it’s Friday. The build up to the contest is getting real, everyone is moving just that one step faster. We woke up to sunny skies again, and I wondered if I would get through this annual trip to Colorado without seeing the snow. James, Todd, Will Redd, and Bill Nitschke started to talk about making an edit for the week, of the best clips, but needed an intro. After much laughter, James started playing the Geto Boys “Damn it feels good to be a gangsta”, next thing the house and the cars outside made it feel like a movie set. It started the day off continuing the great vibe that’s been here all week in Monument.
