This previous Sunday, we went with Satellite Boardshop on this summer's first RIDE WITH US Colorado skate stop to Parker Skatepark. I must say this park is a blast and a half! The sun was beating down upon us as we skated through the park for hours, properly giving us the idea to take a short trip to the creek nearby for a delightful cool-down. Not too mention some soccer on the side. Enjoy these photos taken by Jon and Brendan, and hope to see everybody next time at Satellite's next stop, Laffayette Skatepark, June 12th !

Yesterday myself and Jon Hill went to Parker Skate Park with the Satellite Boardshop skate team to film the first stop at the 2011 Ride With Us Colorado Park tour. We had lots of fun filming and skating with all the Satellite dudes. Mid-day Jon asked me to film this creative line he had and I took a break from the team to get Jon his shot. Enjoy this clip from a very action packed day!

The City of Commerce has been gifted with a beautiful skate plaza. The plaza has everything you could ever ask for including endless ledge lines, and the gnarliest transition skating. So the other day Jon Hill and friends Austin Gregory and Andy Lindner teamed up to grab a couple photos. ENJOY!

This weeks showcase of art comes from a great man by the name of Ian Boll. He is also one of the raddical snowboard shredderz we've had the pleasure of video filming this season. The artworks displayed below are silk-screened photographs, broken into individual layers of color, lined up and printed by hand. To fully apprecieate this art form one must understand that Ian shoots the photo, breaks it down in a graphics program, turns them into silk screens, and follows it all up with a very tedious printing process; consisting of messy inks, lots of screens, and varying results.
Way to go Ian! Awesome prints!

Our friend Steve Pleines hosted a game of skate contest for multiple sclerosis at the University of Colorado. Many friends were in attendance and tricks were being landed left and right. The event had a very positive vibe that was enjoyable to all. Finals consisted of Robert Prehn and Patrick Tran, two local boulder skaters who have also been our friends for quite some time now. Rob took the 1st place prize with a perfect score against Pat, it was an intense game to say the least. Thanks to all the sponsors: Satellite Boardshop, Vans, Never Summer, Neuro Water, Beppo, Chegg.com, and the Colorado-Wyoming MS Chapter. Thanks to Steve, the Judges, and everyone else who helped set up and break down.
P.S.- Sorry for the tardiness of the video, finals, a stolen terabyte and a heavy workload are why it took so long to finish.
