It's a technological amazing piece of equipment and we are happy to get our hands on it for the F video in pre production right now. "Holy shit!" exclaimed Foundation TM Mike Sinclair.

Foundation I've got nothing better to do...

Ad process for the F.
The Sinc gets the photo and decides which rider is on deck.
Nilo does rough layout. Not really rough. More like 99% finished.
I get my hands on it and screw it up.
Everyone complains about the results.
I tell Nilo to sneak it off to the mag.
Wala! Amazing ads from a cooperative team effort.

Foundation Dave Swift from TSM: Two Thumbs Up: Tye Dye Heart Deck!

I met Dave in like 1981 or 82. We became fast friends skateboarding at Del Mar Skate Ranch here in San Diego. We did all kinds of skate journeys. Pools, Ramps, distches, curbs, hills. This was before modern street skating came about. Fast forward 30 years. Dave is co owner of The Skateboard Mag and is till ripping it up out there. He came by F-HQ today unannounced. I think it was his first time here ever!?! After checking out Angel's new Tye Dye Heart Weed model 8.5 X 31.75 and giving it a F-yea! rating, we hung out for awhile and talked the siituation in Libya and related middle east uprisings for democracy and the end of dictatorships. Good times!

Foundation Austinator and Harms in the HQ!

Toy Machine's Austin Stephens and Josh Harmony came by the HQ today. Harms told me his hip saga that resulted in his new bionic hip. We talked politics and finance, had a shot of whisky and called it a day. Ah the life of the skateboarding industry!
