If you were at our BBQ yesterday at the Dream Driveway, thanks for stopping by for a roll and some sauce from either Red Bull or PBR depending on what side of 21 you're on. It's nice to see everyone in our hometown again for the big skateboard contest this weekend. I'm looking forward to watching Tampa Am without 14 hour work days anymore.

Porpe has BBQ skills naturally running through his Latin blood. That steak and chicken fed a steady stream of people passing through.
What is Dylan Perry going to gap to this weekend?
Jereme is back from his first trip to Europe. He spent it on tour with Lil Wayne and Young Money. We're getting some great stories out of him.
Jamie Foy made quite a splash at Tampa Am last year. I'm sure he'll repeat this year.
My fellow FSEC member Cameron Hunt. This dude has goats. Do they eat your t-shirts?
This will be Zion's first Tampa Am this weekend.
Scott Bentley probably skates the Dream Driveway more than Clements does.
JS Lapierre is here with the full Canadian crew.
We don't usually see much going down on the tightest tranny in the driveway. Pat Tremblay's got a blunt fakie on it.
John Montesi got a break from kid duty today. Mine starts a week from Monday when my first child will be born.
Zach Godlewski is here from Texas. He's got nowhere to go but up from 135th place last year. We're backing you, Zach!
One of the smaller projects we're working on is helping Mike Rogers out with a Grind for Life project in Florida involving a few contests open for all. We'll have some details on that soon.
One of my favorite artists is back in town through all of December.
Chris Blake takes a break from the front yard with a cast or two in the back yard.
Jorge, shortly before a running touchdown dance because he shot down an innocent Red Bull can.
Thanks for supplying the PBR, Seamus!
Pat Stiener is on his regular video logging duty this weekend.
A pellet gun, PBR, and Kevin Wilkins equals classic Florida backwoods.
Scotty Conley is a regular visitor to The Boardr porch and offices.
Treshan Oshaughnessy is a Largo resident at the moment.
Chris Blake is now in the front yard on a back tail.
Alejandro Burnell and Jett Eaton. The east coast and the west coast have different sign language.
Jon Cosentino can pick some grapefruit while he's up there on this stale fish.
Cullen rolls this thing all around Florida. Thanks for parking it here and filling the airwaves.
The top of the Dream Driveway is better than the flat bottom on a vert ramp for games of SKATE. Tyler's got a fakie 360 flip and a letter for you.
Ben was part of the deep Canadian crew.
We're going to have to get a Canadian flag if any more show up. Zack Ferguson is taking this frontside nosegrind to fakie.
Out here in these parts, you can have a sasquatch sighting if you look close enough into the brush.
Pat Tremblay was blasting the stinkers over the hip.
As we expected, Tyler has grown up to be ripping young man.
Jereme has to ollie that grass in the foreground to a quick setup for this king sized backside snap.
Piro Sierra lives in NYC, but comes and stays down here in Florida during winter. That pretty much makes him Canadian.
This is what heavy metal parking lot looks like in the Dream Driveway.
Uncle Sam got his hair did before the big contest this weekend. Judges better take notice.
Is Justin Ryan going to be employee #5 at The Boardr? If that happens, I'm preparing the full fluff style press release with the headline, "Staff at The Boardr Grows Leaps and Bounds by 25%!!" More on that later.
The moon and skies are looking amazing as the sun sets on our BBQ. Thanks to everyone that stopped by!
Alex B is no longer on sneak attack missions when it comes to the booze. Welcome to the post 21 world, Alex.

Brands We Back


Mike V has been one of the hardest working dudes in skateboarding since he started skateboarding. I remember as a kid seeing him in the early Powell days at Cheap Skates in PA doing these half cab method airs to fakie on the mini-ramp and just having to pick my jaw up off the ground. Then there was the recent year he came back to Tampa and stole the show where it ended in the crowd carrying him around at the awards. Elephant Brand is his new project that includes Jason Adams and two close friends of The Boardr, Kyle Berard and Neal Hendrix. Mike's also the new frontman in Black Flag. It's all good all around with Elephant and Mike V's crew. We're hyped to have his gear in at The Boardr Store.

What if a bangin' grip tape company like Mob made a video? It would only need to be one trick per rider to be full length and it would be off the charts. Your favorite pros from Kenny Anderson to Daewon Song to Jamie Thomas rep Mob as you can find on the back cover every month in your favorite magazines. Keep your feet on board with some of the best sticky sandpaper out there.

Some of the best skateboarders in the world push on Spitfire Wheels. That first backside noseblunt on Hubba Hideout? That frontside flip AND backside flip down Wallenberg? That was Koston and Andrew Reynolds on Spitfires. Today the new generation, like Nassim and Kyle Walker, keep it burning and make Spitfire Wheels one of the best selling wheels, not just in The Boardr Store, but in all of skateboarding.

When our long time friend Nick Matlin wanted to start a wheel company in 2010 with a fresh and positive vibe, Paradise Wheels was started. He runs the company with the help of Westside Skate Shop's John Montesi who handles the paper pushing while Nick runs with the team and inventory duties out in San Francisco. Paradise Wheels wheels represents the true nature and spirit of DIY in skateboarding. We don't just build our own spots, we build our own companies, too. Welcome Paradise Wheels to The Boardr store.

DC was started in skateboarding's golden era, the early 90's. I've heard two stories on what the initials stand for. At the time, Droors Clothing, associated with Danny Way and Colin McKay, was super hot. They started a shoe company and called it DC, for Droors Clothing. Or was it for Danny and Colin? I don't know, but when I see Danny Way at events we do, I'm always too intimidated to ask him. It's been amazing to watch DC's roots start over 20 years ago in skateboarding through what it is today, still supporting skateboarding first with one of the best teams out there including Nyjah Huston, Evan Smith, Felipe Gustavo, Mike Mo Capaldi, Wes Kremer, Matt Miller, and more. Our young friends skate for them and our old friends work for them, and they work with us doing some great skateboarding events around the world. We're proud to have DC as the first shoe brand in The Boardr Store!
