It’s been awhile since we last updated the blog. Our friend and Historian Jorge Blacktop has been released from the Mexican jail. We say “Keep Skateboarding a Crime” and the Mexican Federales will slap your ass in a 6×6 nasty cell, just for grinding some gnarly coping at the vacant hotel. Anyway it’s been 13 months, (We promised not to update the blog in his absence) We will try to keep him sober enough to update this blog on a weekly basis. there’s alot of positive sheez happening, and we’re right in the thick of things.- Lee
Hello Everybody, It’s been a long minute since I’ve been able to scribble some words down. Luckily for me, I bribed the guard to get internet access. I’ve been keeping up with EVERYTHING! We’ve added some new Virginia Beach young guns in the names of Nathan Midgette (That’s right Allen’s son) and Ronan Livingston. On any given day you’ll find Nathan, Ronan, Newest Embassy Pro Collin Graham and the Legendary Henry Gutierrez staying true to the “Fork Crew” Legacy, and that is SKATING EVERYDAY, having a positive vibe, and always having fun! With Mt Trashmore and Williams Farm just a few minutes apart. It’s all about “What kind of tranny do we want to skate today!
