Also modified my anti-crutch invention thing. Used crutches and a Asterisk knee brace this time vs a cti BAMA fork combo. Last time i broke my talus and couldn’t put weight on it for 15 weeks, but had to figure out a way to weedeat. So I made the first one. This has a lot of potential. I hope to fine tune it soon to be able to adjust how much pressure I can put on my foot as it heals for real-time physical therapy. This is a way I figured out would get me back on my bike quicker.
Been MIA since I got broke off. Been spring cleaning and working a garage sale, on Facebook, of some random goodies I found. Started painting again. Here’s a couple. I added some color to a b&w pic spike took in 1990
of my first public flip fakie in Paris France at the Bercy stadium for Jerry Severson. The other painting I made for Jim Hadd. I was riding with Jim and Jay Eggleston when I crashed and broke my heel and ankle. They wanted to get a pic of me riding with them on the deck before I crashed, so I painted the pic I would have hoped to make with them. Oil on @skatelite
My heal and ankle fractures are healing. Have about 4 more weeks before I can put any weight on it so if you want me to paint something for you I have the time and could use the challenges. DM for prices. Thanks.
Here’s a #tbtbmx Photo I have framed in my house with broken glass from Ron Wilkerson’s enchanted ramp contest back in 1987. Last week I passed by where this ramp sat, that you could see from I-5, and exited on Leucadia Boulevard, which happens to be exit 43 and the exit to get to this ramp. I was headed to pannikin coffee shop with @bigislandmike. I passed by Juanita’s taco shop where the awards were given out over 31 yrs earlier. I was then asked if I was @mikemcgill while I was getting coffee where I said no, but I know him, exchanging high 5’s. I then went to @zeroskateboards to do a podcast with the great @jamiethomas. After which I crashed at one of my favorite peoples house @staabpirate1 where Mike McGill called him and Kevin handed the phone to me to say hi and didn’t know about the day I had. This was a crazy trip down 3 decades of memory lane. Broke but Stoked. I think this was shot by Steve Giberson? But if anybody knows better correct me. #condorsess
I was honored to hangout with the legendary @jamiethomas for his new podcast starting in May titled @thrillofitall – thanks for putting me up for the night @staabpirate1 Been friends for over 30 years. and thanks for helping me get around @bigislandmike and packing up my bike ️ I’ve got good friends to lean on. Now headed home to see my doctor….
