So skeleton survived (mostly) the torrential rain that lasted almost all of last week. Most of the pits have drainage... except this swimming pool near the end.
I'm confused by the footprints in the mud. Why are the little animal tracks only in the middle? Did the giant bird get the little guy? And what the hell kind of bird made those tracks!

Larry Edgar is my new favorite rider. I remember riding with him out at the compound when he was about 13 and eveybody knew him as "Little Larry." He killed it on everything with effortless style. He still does... but apparently he's added some huge tricks to his game. He was also always one of the nicest kids out there. Back then, we would show up on 26s and he was one of the few who thought it was rad. He would even ride my bike... better than me his first time through the line (but I did x-up his tiny ass bike, haha). So, anyway, Little Larry rules. And he'll probably be winning Dew Tours with style before you know it.

X-Down... that's what I'm calling it. We made a little trails tour to Sheep and this spot last weekend. Both spots were in really good shape after the recent rain (although probably completely flooded just like everywhere else after the crazy storms this whole week). A janky 8 foot tall roll in gets you into this line... that is trails. This picture was actually taken a few months back. The place is looking and flowing a lot better now.

So, I've either been playing too much DJ Hero or listening to too much Girl Talk lately, or both, and was inspired to put this little mashup together using The Beastie Boys, The Troggs, and Tone Loc. Music is what I do on rainy days... and it's been raining a lot lately.

I met up with some old friends and some new friends out at the whoops yesterday. I hadn't been there in awhile, but we had a blast. That place is crazy. The jumps aren't huge and it doesn't really flow right, but for some reason I always have fun there. Maybe it's because there is always a good group of people. Maybe it's the number of jumps. Or maybe it's the location... you can see the bay and Catalina island on a clear day. Whatever it is, it's fun. And it is so cool to have a spot like this so close to the heart of LA.
Oh, and make sure you watch it on Vimeo if you want to see it in HD.

Here are some pictures of the first Liquids to find new homes! The blue one is Erik's ride up in Minnesota. The black one is being rocked by Richard up in Sac-town. I'm loving both of them... it's really making me want to build up one of each color! Thanks for the support guys and I hope you enjoy your new bikes.
