New year is here, how do you celebrate new years eve ?

this year i just kicked it with my family


Tell us a slippery story.

this one time my buddy schooner, danny dicola, and fresh floyd made a trip down to mexico to skate this bowl called the showbowl out in the middle of nowhere, when we finally got there it was almost dark and we realized we had no money or food and couldn’t pay for the camping spot. so my buddy schooner and i made the trip into town to get supplies. its about a 45 minute drive on a dirt road just to get to the main road. we got there and got food beer and money and started heading back. we were driving on the dirt road in the pitch black and couldn’t find our way back because there are so many different it roads to take. it started getting foggy and couldn’t see past a few feet ahead of us. we continued driving for hours. we almost gave up and slept in the car. we decided to stop and get out to see if we could see anything better. and I’m glad we did because if we had drivin two more feet we would have driven off a straight diff to rocks into the ocean. it was seriously so lucky that we didn’t die. we looked at each other totally freaked out. so we got back in the car and then knew which way nit to drive. we could finally see some lights off in the distance and long story short made it back. the boys were stoked and we were freaked out but had a rad story to tell the boys. we ended up drinking and feasting and had a rad day the next day.



thank you to all my sponsors, friends and my awesome family! and anyone else who has helped me along the way

Last words ? thanks and cheers to may more years of pyre epicness! love, -Alan
