If you are anywhere near the upstate/ central NY region, you should def check out East Shore skatepark! It is an awesome park with a cool vibe, and the owner Shane is a super cool guy, and talented artist as well.
Check out this Graffiti event that they are having the 29th of January. They whited out the walls of the park and are putting up some new pieces, so come check it out!!!
Here are some more pics from our trip upstate. Some of from the comp and some are from chilling.
Stew Johnson won the giant size 66 Vans sneaker that was in the $20 Raffle. People probably wanted this more than any other prize that was up for grabs.
The Pon Digga was out tryin to relive 2000. J Finagle can’t find a straddle cable! This genius had the great idea of putting 3 bikes and 3 people inside of a mini cooper instead of using the bike rack.
Rob Dolecki was shredding at Bakers with Digglestein. He was killing all the lines there no problem.
FBM had a really fun jam last weekend up at East Shore Skatepark. A ton of people came out to raise money for Mike Tag who was recently diagnosed with cancer. There were raffles all day, food, beverages, riding, and fun all over! They ended up raising over $3,ooo during the day which will go to medical bills.
This weekend, we made it up to the Mike Tag Cancer Benefit Jam in Ithaca, NY at EAST SHORE SKATEPARK. Me Brett and Austin the Pon Digga packed 3 bikes, 3 people, and a bunch of random stuff into a Mini Cooper and hit the road.
This car was packed to the brim with people, bikes, shit talking, and good times. Brett and Pon Digga up front, with me lurking the back seat.
Big Thanks to John Lee, Steve Crandall, Kelly Baker, and the rest of the FBM crew, as well as all the Richmond dudes, upstate locals, and anyone else we chilled with over the weekend.
No thanks to Cancer, flat tires, and the dandy market by bakers acres!

Come up to Ithaca, NY to ride East Shore Skatepark and hang out. The Pon Digga is goin are you?
We are hopefully going to make it up to the Mike Tag Benefit Jam next weekend at East Shore Skatepark, right outside of Ithaca, NY. Any FBM event is usually a good time, and this one will be no different.
If you can’t make it up to the jam, you can still donate money via paypal RIGHT HERE
Even though I didn’t shoot much up in Ithaca at East Shore Skatepark luckily some people had their cameras out. One of them also happened to have one of many gnarly beards in the building and goes by the name of REDBEARD check out some of them below as well as on his FLICKR account.
Me and Brett went up to East Shore this weekend with Pon Digga, Mr. Nick, and Nasty Nils. It was a real experience, especially for everyone meeting Nasty who turned into Donkey Kong and started throwing barrels at plumbers, especially when he got his 4lok’s.
4LOKO OASIS IN UPSTATE NY! HAD THE CRAZY SUPPLY LEFT OF LOK’S
Grilled Cheese Sandwiches were the food of the day, thanks to anyone who bought some toasty melted goodness, or a tshirt! I bumped off melts all day and had enough money for Cracker Barrel pancakes the next day in Binghamton!!!!
GRILLED CHEESE SANDWICH MEETS GRILLED CHEESE TATTOO!
I don’t think I have anymore pics from the trip which seems odd, but the whole weekend was. Any time going to an FBM event is always super fun if you haven’t been to one you are really missing out on the realest BMX shit around.
