Growing up as a kid, I was a huge fan of trading cards, baseball, football, basketball, didn’t matter, i collected them all and still have most of them to this day. So back in 2012, I created this series of baseball cards for my friends an myself as a half joke/half living out a childhood dream of being forever memorialized on the all mighty trading card.

Since I’ve moved to Charlotte, I think its rained like 60% of the time, so this weekend, in efforts to thwart mother nature and get some much needed blading in, myself and Montre Livingston headed up to Concord, NC to visit Soul Ride Skatepark and thwart we did. – David Dodge (Ideasforlions.com).
My good friend Tim Taylor and I have been working on this edit for a while. It’s compiled of footage from past quick edits and unused footage that we’ve been saving up. It was pretty much done until my hard drive crashed.
Now, since all of my wonderful friends help me recover said crashed hard drive, I figured I should finish what we started and get this bad boy posted on the interweb. – David Dodge.
A plane ride to denver, 1500 miles in packed out car with 7 rad humans, touring 6 skateparks in the beautiful Colorado, coupled with 120 other amazing humans, open skies and some the most impressive nature you’ll see made the 16th annual Colorado Road Trip incredible to say the least.

In May 2013 in the last minute, plans came together for Kevin Dowling, myself and Garrett Slobey to travel to to Jacksonville for the infamous Panhandle Pow-Wow.
On our way down, we knew only two things, we were going to be camping and we were going to be raging, the rest was up in the air.
The rain on arrival definitely began the trip with a bit of a somber mood, but after Kevin was insistant that we needed to camp at the oldest skatepark in our nation regardless of the conditions, we got set up and good times ensued.
I can honestly say that this trip is the best single experience I’ve had in my entire rollerblading career and I can’t wait for the Panhandle Pow-Wow 2014. – David Dodge (Ideasforlions.com).
Music: BJ Thomas – Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head, Monster Rally – Honey, Javelin – Vibrationz.
That is exactly how comps should be covered, the boys, handling lifestyle hammers, some skating, Thomas and Adam, Blake clips, little dudes getting love from the elders, cussing, me saying suck my dick, its all there Dodge. – Kevin Dowling.
So as I’ve been promising, here is the 16 minute edit with all of the footage I’ve shot and been given in the past 2 years. I originally intended to make a video and in retrospect, there is no reason I shouldn’t have but oh well, life goes on.
Anywho, I used the last of all the footage I have from my HV20 (writing this now I realized there are a handful of clips i did not include so you will probably see a few more, sorry T Mart) and made it into this edit.
