Street and Park Practice, Monster Party Lurk with Joey Badass, and More at X Games Austin

HiDefJoe comes in with another episode of On The Boardr documenting the shred here at X Games Austin. I've got a few skate photos, and Porpe runs the nightlife at the Monster party where Joey Badass did a small private show that I didn't know about prior to making my decision to stay in. Stupid. Moral of the story kids: always go out and party. You never know what you're going to miss.

There are some long days here at work, but when we can, we go on break mode and get beat by our new BMX buddies on the shuffleboard tables. Jorge and I are now hooked on this game. It's the new pool table.

Our Offices at X Games
Luan Oliveira Photo

Our office for the week has literally the best, most solid ground you've ever rolled on. There's something about this Formula 1 special smooth concrete that's ceramic like. Anyway, we get the rock stars coming through playing games of SKATE and other random flat ground antics. Look at the media documentation going on here from Grant Taylor, Shane O'Neill, Tom Asta, Paul Rodriguez, Chris Cole, Ishod Wair, Curren Caples, and Jaws. We're all blown away by Luan's switch 540 flat ground ollies.
