Hello everybody! We here at WEIRDO are stoked to ramp it up again gonzo style (whatever that's supposed to mean) with the next bucket of high-test exploitative media piss.
Taking a look back is sometimes an OK thing, when I did, right next to my shadow were dim frames of light. The memories of what we all have done, for better or worse. I also got some on my leg...anyhow
Jason Jessee Stops by the WTF
to Borrow A Cup of Buttery Trannies
A handful of Weirdo Training Facility (WTF) regulars were pleasantly surprised when Jason Jessee and a few of his photographer buddies stopped by to shoot some pics and film for some upcoming promo media that they are working on. If you've yet to meet any of them, they are all cool dudes, and we here at Weirdo are stoked to help them. It made for a "magical" (used in the absolutely gayest sense of the word) weekday afternoon, and later we were all left to wonder, "Don't all you guys gotta be somewhere?"
Well remember kids, staying out of a full time job, is a full time job...
Weirdo Field Agents Ruin the Environment at Lake Tahoe
Re-Terror 3 Dominated by the "SICKNESS"
Hat's off to Weirdo Field Agents Demarcus James and Jason Richardson for putting the hurt, and some fresh pine scent, on the Re-Terror 3 Contest at Pat Splatt's Ramp in Lake Tahoe. Both took First Place in their respective divisions, on a mountain mission in which the clean alpine air could have easily killed them!
We here at Weirdo are happier than a "dog with two of his favorite body parts" about the overall awesomeness of the Full Pipe Contest we held at the Lake Cunningham Regional Skate Park this summer. It was definitely a Summer in Hell Day in San Jo' and a goodly amount of our good for nothing friends were there!
There were no age divisions so as to keep it simple, just a good old fashioned local skatepark contest. Vert Masters Mitchell Mendez, Jeff "Ffej" Hedges, Gary Boodt, and Jason Richardson all entered, and totally tore it a new one, yikes!!! These guys have been on a COMPLETE TEAR this year, and for that, it's a special year for all of us. They did fine; keeping up with young whippersnappers like Shane Sullivan, Kevin Reynolds, Brad Barberi, Rowan Thunder, and the like. It's hopeful to see some youngsters taking an interest in the Big Vert, as it's definitely an acquired taste!
Weirdo Riders Thomas Beeson and Lance Ebert were also in the house, rocking it with their always unique approaches to skateboarding. Amongst other things...
We here at Weirdo are proud to announce the arrival of these excellent new additions to our line up of fine decks, featuring new shapes and graphics that are sure to please. Weirdo Artist - Joey Vela (left) and Head Weirdo - Tom Augusta (right) snapped these shots after unpacking the goodies at the Weirdo Training Facility (WTF). They will be made available immediately.
Holy Fucking Shit - Barge the Lake - A HUGE Success!!!
We here at Weirdo are absolutely ecstatic about the first leg of our contest series with the Lake Cunningham Regional Skate Park and Skidmark Magazine! The turnout was the best ever, the skating was intense, and the good old San Jose HEAT was absolutely relentless. HUGE THANKS to the Skaters, the Bands, the Sponsors and the Fans that made it all possible.
