Well Pat and I are putting are feet forward and going ahead with these two new tv shows. The first is a skateboard show called “SKATE VANCITY”


It focuses on the Vancouver skate scene.. It should be a fun show and we hope to expose Vancouver the mecca of skating to the world again…. like it hasn’t already been done….. Yeah but it can always be updated… The show will start off being broad casted over the net and  then we  hope to sell it to a Network or corporate giant who will kill it and make it some generic fake piece of shit…. Kidding we hope to keep it core and real and hopefully give some of the local skate shops and local riders some exposure and tell the world that their is a lot more to Vancouver then just what they read in the mag’s… Each ep will feature a different skate parks as well as featuring different local riders of the park… Look for it soon, we hope to have the 1st EP out in June….

Now the 2nd project Pat and I are filming  is a show called Pat and Daveo. This show is a 8 min dramatic comedy series that is broken into 9 web episodes for the first season. The story line follows the adventures of two almost middle aged skaters, Dave who has a wife and kids but still tries to live like he’s 20 something and his best bud of 11 years Pat who is single and spends most of his time rocking his guitar and making home made beer while getting stoned…

China Creek Skate Park….

May 15, 2009

The skate park that won’t quit.

china creek China Creek is the oldest skate park in Vancouver and one of my fav’s.  It smells like piss, shit and barf and often there is a bum sleeping on the benches. In the morning there is rarely  anyone around and you can spend a few hours alone skating the cracked and beaten concrete. An eye sore that was once in jeopardy of being ripped down.  It now boast a sort of historical statues and is the first retried skate park in Vancouver,  due largely in part to the hard working people of the Vancouver Skateboard Coalition.( good job boys and girls).

Memories of a time before cell phones and other distractions, skating the park in the early morning gives me a sense of calm in this ever growing violent skate community.

The Jaks still hold there annual skateboard comp at China Creek in Sept and it is always fun watching the oldies drink too much, skate and talk about old times.
