The Architects

Wow. Hardest working band in the world today. The Architects are kicking ass in 100000 degree heat and sweating through their clothes and the drummer is starting to look a little pale. They sound awesome!

Quiksilver Super Groms

In the super groms division the little kids take over and simply get out and have fun. There were about 120 of them this year. Everyone gets something. Everyone wins.

Look at their little faces! Don’t trust ’em though. Shifty little surfers will steal you blind. Look at them…yep. Watch out.

Checking In with the Vans Team

P1000192
The whole crew was out to sign autographs today. Pretty overwhelming the amount of athletes there. Hundreds of people waited in line. (Thanks guys!) Not only do the athletes get to meet a great bunch of fans…after it was over they got pizza. Not a bad day. Look at those clouds, son. Daaaang.

Your Bike is a Sucker.

Chris (left) and Daniel

Today I met VA Beach native Daniel Turnipseed and his friend Chris Adams. These guys are a hoot. Daniel built both of these bikes because, “I don’t like other people’s bikes. I wanted to have something different.” So he designed and constructed both his gun bike and Chris’ chain bike.

The gun bike only took him three days to make. It is still a working gun with bullets in the chamber, though the barrel has now been moved to kick-stand status. Its got a grenade on it, too. The chain bike took 2 weeks to build. Each link is welded to keep the frame and handlebar shape. If you want to hit Daniel up for a bike email him dkturnipseed@aol.com.
