To those that have instagram
Very limited decks
I was in the warehouse going through some old Trade Show boxes when I came across a few of these 'special, very limited' decks. A hundred or so were made to assemble into completes to give to VIPs when Trade Shows were big. I guess these were left behind, and have been sitting protected these past years. It would be cool to have one. More on the decks in a bit.
If you haven't heard Bones Brigade : An Autobiography is finished and is being released this November. We have been encouraging fans to instagram a pic from the 80's (tagged #bonesbrigade), the guys are choosing the best images that are posted to include in the Bones Brigade DVD artwork!
Stacy and George signatures
Back to the decks; we decided to give one away. Yup. To participate in this sweepstakes you will need to instagram your pic (#bonesbrigade) from the 80's to enter. One of the pics that are submitted will be chosen to receive the signed deck. Simple. The more you instagram the greater the chances the guys will choose your pic to include in the DVD artwork, not to mention the increased chances to score the deck. Winner of the deck will be chosen on September 17th, 12:00pm.

More Europe FUN!
The guys sent over more photos that they're taking during their trip in Europe. Let's see what kind of FUN they're up to now!
The rain came so Terry, Josh, Deville, and Nils decided it would be a good idea to take a walk around Köln.
Steven snapped a photo of this amazing fountain outside of the Dom in Köln.
Instagram fun, outside of the Dom.
You gotta love blue ramps.
Over 700 years old. Beautiful!

YOU CAN SEE HIM
Press Release by BITTORRENT on AUGUST 28, 2012
Skateboarding for us began with a VHS tape that we watched on repeat until we wore it out. That was a thing that used to happen. Now we feel old. It’s called The Search for Animal Chin. It’s the movie that started skate film. And it’s never been distributed digitally in a formal channel. Until now.
An official selection of Sundance 2012, Stacy Peralta’s Bones Brigade: An Autobiography documents skateboarding’s youth revolution. The ollies. The inverts. The airs. The insecurities. The impossible achievements. It’s the true, untold story of Tony Hawk, Rodney Mullen, Steve Caballero, Lance Mountain, Tommy Guerrero, Mike McGill, and the moment skateboarding became skateboarding.
To celebrate the new Bones Brigade doc, we’ve partnered with Stacy Peralta to bring you guys a free download of The Search For Animal Chin, available in all its digital glory for the first time. We’re also throwing in a BitTorrent Bundle of exclusive content from the Bones Brigade: HD trailers for Animal Chin and the Bones Brigade doc, wallpapers, stencils, music and more. Head over to featuredcontent.utorrent.com for your copy + Bones Brigade exclusive content.

Mimi Knoop wins the 8th annual Chili Bowl contest!
While the other gals were competing in Colorado last weekend, Mimi Knoop was in San Francisco at the Chili Bowl contest with Poseiden Foundation. Skaters, Fabrizio Santos and Jen O'Brien were also there helping with Poseiden's mission to better the community by educating the youth. Kids were rewarded with hoopla goodies for picking up trash around the park. They also held some best trick contests for the kids as well.
Chili Bowl 8 crowd!

Just wanted to give you a quick recap on last night's screening, I was quite busy so my photos don't really do justice but we'll send you an official recap shortly.
First come, first served
We had over 700 people attending. We invited 600 people and had approximately 100 tickets at the door. A few people got turned away but mostly everyone made it in. The line up for tickets at the door started at 2pm, doors opened at 7pm.
We had an amazing crowd that included many young kids as well, many were lining up to meet Rodney and Tony.
Two of three screenings
The event went really well and the guys we're fantastic to deal with. The general feedback I received was that everyone felt so blessed to not only witness the movie, but having these legends there to share it with was a lifetime opportunity.
Rodney, Mike, Tommy and Tony
Once the emotional dust from the movie & Q&A settled, BLKTOP project gave everyone the icing on the cake and made sure everyone returned home with a smile on their faces.

Thank you for letting us make this happen,

Let's see what's going on with the team while they're in Europe.
As the guys are on their trip in Europe, they're taking many photos along the way. Let's take a look into what they've been photographing the past couple days.
Kicking it by what seems to be the Titus Limo.
Skaters can always find a way to make a spot skateable.
I wonder what amazing tricks were going through Brad's eyes as he snapped a photo of this fun bowl.
Steven captured a picture perfect moment of these geese and the awesome windmill.
Nils from 24/7 Distribution provided the guys with a guitar for the road.
Terry uploaded this photo of an amazing up ledge.
