While Kyle, Patrik and I were in China, we met up with the Converse squad which consisted of kenny anderson, eli reed, angel ramirez, sammy baca, julian davidson, ethan fowler, dave huang, anthony claravall, sam mcguire and a number of other heads. Kenny A hyped up the crew to hit the Great Wall of China at Sunrise, which seemed unnecessary when thinking about it the night before. The great wall was roughly a three hour drive away from Beijing and getting up at 4 to see some wall didn't sound too appealing. But fortunately we did and it was honestly one of the most amazing experiences of my life. We had to sneak up the mountain in darkness to get there, because it hadn't technically opened yet. When we got up there, it was one of the most incredible sights I've ever seen. Being the only humans on that wall as far as we could see was a feeling I'll never forget. Despite it being completely freezing, watching the sun cruise up over mongolia was epic! On the way down we discovered a cool slide you could take all the way down, which fully topped the whole experience.

Here's an edit i made of some slow mo's that were in the video. This song is a remake of a sam cooke classic, and for some reason it just really caught my ear and i couldn't stop listening to it! This edit doesn't quite do it justice, but i just thought i'd see what skating looked like to this song!

The burgher and brother have been up to some shredding! Austin Kanfoush and Kyle Nicholson have been traveling around the country with the rest of the axion crew doing demos and skating some of the roughest spots you've ever seen. Between the two of them they have racked up enough footy for a short little shared part for you to enjoy! These two dudes are the future of skating, with non stop progression and speed!

At some point during october of last year, I told Josh he should come down to SD and escape the cold wet winter in Seattle to film for his welcome to organika video. I told him not to worry about anything, that'd he'd have a place to stay on my couch for as many months as he wanted. Well a week or so before his arrival Hank, Kelly and I received a 30 day notice of eviction. Josh was a trooper though and came down anyways, helped us move and found a home on the couch of the apartment that Hank moved into. I felt like an asshole and just left the country, but I knew Josh would handle business and kill it while i was gone. This Welcome to Organika video is long overdue, but at least its here. Josh is one of the best skateboarders out there and I've wanted him to get on Organika for a long time. Here is some many minutes of footage he stacked while he was down here, as well as some clips from up in his home state of Washington. Enjoy
John and I had some little interviews online come out yesterday. Jay at CCS hooked up a little "what's what" on CCS, and John has part two up of "insight with John Lupfer" on shredordie. check them out

While I was out in Asia a few months back, Patrik and I pretty much tried to film something at every spot. Whether it was something new or just something whatever, we wanted to document all the amazing spots that are out there, many which are untouched by western skateboarders. Patrik and I were listening to this nina simone remix song a bunch while we were out there, so I asked him to edit together all the leftover stuff that isn't going in my next organika project. For now, this video shows some of the incredible spots we were fortunate enough to skate out there. thanks again to c1rca for helping me get out there, to the preduce homies in thailand for putting us up and showing us spots, and to all the china homies who took us around.

Ryan has been spending some time up in the east bay, with his real roots. No, not livermore or bend oregon, but his oakland roots. He's also been tapping into his old school pony tail days and freely lets his hair grow into one wild mane. If you see him, tell him to cut his hair. But for the time being watch him shred with the other true shuffl homie, Errol Langdon.
Packers won. I think they won. I can't say I watched more than one play of the game tho, so if anyone is going to be talking about what happened in a historic football game, don't ever let it be me. But i did take tons of photos which you can view here. Poo Screen also landed a few epic flatground tricks on danny wallace's cruiser board and I think his switch hardflip created the loudest reaction from the crowd at John and Danny's party than any moment in the football game. Its not surprising tho. What do you expect when you get a bunch of skateboarders together to sit and watch a football game? Here's some video of what you get...

Here are the friends sections from the video ! With so many homies it was hard to fit everyone we knew. there were definitely some friends and heavy hitters who we didn't manage to fit in, but for all who did its an honor and a pleasure to have you in the video. Since SHUFFL stands for skate homies underground family for life, its only proper that we packed in as many skate homies as possible.
Thank you to all the contributing filmers who made these montages happen.
