I came across this photo @blabacphoto took when @dannyway invited me to ride with him and watch him set a new high air record. May 2015.
I’ve supported this foundation for 15 yrs. I get my head shaved to raise money and exposure to childhood cancer research through @stbokc This is always in honor of the great Fletcher Vines who I was honored to have shaved my head the first year. Thanks @flipswinebar and @vzdsokc and the awesome people who come together and giver their support. Over 1.5 million raised in the last 15 years. Thank you. I’m bald now. ️
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.
