Anything and everything


This was the last time I got to skate till at least 2015. August 2 crailslide @ my Ramp jam . It’s been on full month tomorrow . I took a strange slam and snapped my L4 and herniated both my L4 and L5 . The last month has been kinda painfull , herniated disks create nerve pain throughout either your legs or arms . Mines in my right leg . Take care of your spines guys . My July could not have been better , Landing the Backflip @ Vans @motherHastings in front of my mother and my kids and all my friends was the kinda thing I thought possible in my dreams . I live a truly blessed life surrounded by positive loving and healing energy. I take the good with the bad . I d like to thank my friends and family for all the assistance this month . @cfuruya β€οΈπŸ€„οΈ

Happy birthday to my best friend Colin Mckay . It’s nice being part of a fellowship like the Red Dragons πŸ€„οΈ. A group of individuals that will watch my back to the day we all die . Love you Colin ❀️all the RefDragons .

The European tour in the 80s and 90s used to be so rad . I think this was 1998 Amsterdam @tonyhawk @geoffrowley @paulzitzer @willysantos @flipskateboards just happened opinion each other cruising the red light district . What amazing memories . Skateboarding a great ambassador β€οΈπŸ€„οΈ

Back in 2000 Canada had a event sponsored by Molson Canadian beer called Snow jam . It was during the summer and it had a mega snowboard quarter pipe a street park and Vert ramp . It was a super fun event . And Canada could really use an event of this caliber again . πŸ€„οΈπŸ‘Š photo @jodymorrisphoto

This is a fun photo that was in Warp magazine in 2000 . World Industries was hired to skate @ the Teen Choice awards in Hollywood . @overground_skateboarding , Mike Crum and I skated a vert ramp and Carlos De Andre skated in and around the stage during the show . I am not into wrestling but it was a blast to meet a ton of rad people back stage . Riding for World Industries in those days was a really good time , Steve Rocco was a very generous man to ride for .

I have a few fav skaters , I lave a bunch of people I am happy to call friend s. This man falls into both categories . @steviecab flying 7 ft above the tallest person on deck . πŸ‘ŠπŸ€„οΈπŸ™πŸ‘

My beautiful daughter @little_red_dragon737 working on her backflips in our BJJ , gymnastic / crossfit gym in our basement . I love this lil girl more than words ❀️. She s smart , brave and never gives up .

Fast plant off the Richmond skate ranch extension . 1989 , riding a G&S Dpug Smith , with magnesium Gullwing trucks and Airwalk 720 s I think .. Lol those shoes were like skating in a cast . There s no better memories than the ramp you learnt all your basics . The ramp was called Imra after a friend of the locals whom died in a car wreck ,

Back around 2002 @dannyway set up a mega quarter pipe in SD . I was lucky enough to ride it a few days with @colinmckay @tonyhawk @wolfmate holy shit was it scary to roll in from the top on your first couple rides .. I did nt make anything to get excited about but now looking back at that memory … Unreal I was getting to skate with worlds best skaters and witness first first hand the progression and evolution of the Mega ramp . @jodymorrisphoto thanks for the photo πŸ‘Š

No big deal , just flying over a massive football stadium full of people while performing arial stunts with 8 other fighter jets . This is the best selfie I personally have ever seen . He’s lucky there cops flying the opposite , he d have gotten a ticket for sure . Red Dragons πŸ€„οΈπŸ€„οΈπŸ€„οΈ

@dannyway way back in 1989 , 360 varial . Riding one of his very first @hstreet pro models . The Viking dude being held in the palm of a giant . @jimmyz and @airwalk sponsoring the event . If anyone knows which event tins is I d be stoked to know . Thanks @koolmeoleo for the shot πŸ‘Š

Never give up on your dreams folks . Cutest lil statement ever πŸ€„οΈ. #pma #lifelover #haveagoal

Our @centredist family put together this sweet Instagram video . Check it out .πŸ‘ŠπŸ€„οΈ

This is me 1988 I had just got fully sponsor by G&S , Gullwing and Quivksilver . This #BodBoyle shape was a couple years before it’s time . My baby brother @rds_designer shot this behind the Richmond skate ranch vert ramp . I was so full of myself . Ego ran my world … I was young , I had a lot to learn . It’s a process and slowly but surely it worked . The faster I tried to quicken this process the more painful it became. to this day I am still learning but proud how far I have come . I love the process and have surrendered to it. Skateboarding is an amazing tool to teach you many things , humility being one of the greatest lessons .
