My #1 employee helped take this pic below. When I posted it on Flikr and Twitter a lot of response was do I still ride flatland. Or as some people call it “flizzzzatland.”

I do ride as much as I can. Some times it isn’t possible to ride. So when I do it is as sweet as it was years ago. Never a bad time, unless my bike fucks up.

The flatland version is coming soon. Samples are done and some are being ridden. So expect them hopefully sooner than later.

Madera needed a poster pic of Tom, so we decided to head up to Gainsville, Florida to sesh the campus, city, and the new local free cement park.

Your going to have to wait for the poster to come out, but till then, here are a few pics of Tom trying to kiss an old man. They  were both talking about doing a 90 year old lady…wild conversation for sure.

“Hey Tom, what  you been up to?” “Nothing, working at a surf shop on the beach”

“Hey Chad, are you going to interview Jason Levy?”  “Ffffffuck yes. He is nuts, I am on that shit for sure. Will get that on Deco asap”

Coming soon, Jason Levy interview, Tom V bike check video, Mat Olson bike check, and Chad’s Deco Day.

As we rolled up to the gainsville park, it poured. But Florida weather will dry that shit as fast as it comes down.

When your on the road, you find the weird shit amusing.

We all had a lot of time on our hands, so we kept using our phone app called Pano. No, no Porno, PANO.

Porno doesn’t need an app I don’t think. Does it?

Thanks to Matt, Profile, and Danny for a sweet trip.

This first pic is funny. I needed a bed to sleep on, so an easy cheap way was to get a blow up mattress. This one was easy cause the girl on it is hot…

Profile trip 31

This is the #1 pic of the trip. Jeff K gave me this and said “doesn’t this look like Tony Malouf?”

Would you?

Profile trip 30

The house we stayed at was sweet minus the dog shit…this ramp was out back…pretty nice.

Profile trip 29

This was the crew. Jeff K’s head is real thin, Matt’s neck is real thin, larry is looking the wrong way, and myself…shit, just tough.

Profile trip 27

Dogs killed the house everyday. Ate everything and shit everywhere.

Profile trip 25

Jeff would not stop eating cheese…his quote “I am from wisconsin”

Profile trip 24

Not sure what is going on here.  The party was mostly inside, but and easy way to get outside was through the window.

Profile trip 23

Danny, thanks for letting us stay…

Profile trip 22

More dog shit.

Profile trip 20

I love expired sandals, specially when cigs garnish them.

Profile trip 17

Dogs had a session. Funny thing was they only ate carpet and fake plants to produce this mess.

Profile trip 16

The shit was everywhere. Was almost a common thing each day. We had to wear shoes at all times in the  house.

Profile trip 15

The first I heard of Tony was while we were filming for Baco 10. Freimuth told me about some dude in  Minnesota who could spin anything. He also can puke on command. Both will take you far in our sport. He had pretty much one of best sections in Baco 10. If you have a chance, take another look. We all wish him the best on his speedy recovery. -Chad DeGroot and the Florida crew

Tony crashed real bad at the trails on monday.. fractured his skull in a few places.
he had emergency surgery and he’s doing really well despite the severity of the injury..
he has no insurance and I’m organizing this jam to help him out with the upcoming bills.
I also applied for for the ARF athletes recovery fund on his behalf.
it’s a shitty situation for him already.. he shouldn’t stress about bills…
here is the flier so far…

This pool is insane. It is so big and full of possibilities. These pics, care of James Covington, are just a sample.

The pool is so big that the shallow end will never fill up with the Florida rain. So some quickrete action will be going down. Why wouldn’t it?

This first pic is a gap over the corner ladder and avoiding the crazy pole jam. Looks like I have  sweet pony tail action.

Chad pool 1

This is a classic. The tranny was so tight it was hard as hell to get up der…

Chad pool 2

180 the corner ladder and fell a couple times cause the filmer didn’t get the clip. I fell on my thumb, dumb thumb now…feels real crappy.

Chad pool 4

This is a pedal hang 5 in the shallow end. Trying to avoid the animal bones everywhere. The poor fellows would fall in the pool and not get out…bones everywhere. Boners all over to.

Chad pool 3
