It was just two days ago when I succumbed to my first bout with cabin fever. Part of it had to do with contact from the Thuggish Behaviorist notifying me that a legendary rollerboard spot in San Francisco that usually looks like this;
-is currently looking like this;
This of course means that for the time being (and the short time it’s dry), sessions a-plenty are happening.
Now, since I was a young boy I’ve been aware of this spot, and the legends that have spent time in it;
T.G. Pitching style, back before high-res, and electricity, via his Instagram.
Captain Stranger, same era, via Mic-E.
This spot is dry and skateable only once in a blue moon, and as I sit gazing out the window I am only able to imagine the array of abrasions and sprained joints I would be enjoying along side of my four wheeled compatriots.
As it stands, I’ll wait until the next blue moon, and see if I can’t fall down in it then.
And while we’re on the topic of fat tubs of goo- There really is no greater bummer than carrying a tub of goo on your back. That is of course unless you happen to have a bag that is dialed in enough to be able to accommodate it.
Based on how quickly the first run sold out (a couple of days I think), if you’d like one yourself, I’d say there’s no time like the present to grab one;
Naturally, it maybe wouldn’t be such a big deal if it were simply a bag, but along with it, you receive a couple items that no self respecting transporter of goo would want to live without.
Those being a set of toe straps, and a custom, and very limited in edition Dank brand cüzie;
*Beer not included.
I have absolutely beaten the ever loving crap out of the one I’ve been carrying since September, and in that time, nary a stitch has torn.
It’s almost like it was designed by a bike rider or something.
Get one now, or forever fold your peas.
Lastly, it’s come to my attention that Matt ‘Trail Wizard’ Moore is unfortunately one of the many fallen friends I mentioned on Wednesday after getting creamed by a car;
March surely sucked for a number of us, but it seems as though for Matt, it sucked the most.
