Julien Cudot was in town and working on something with Anthony Medina. I warned them all week, “I’m still going to come out and film on Saturday.” I’m surprised we all got as much done as we did.
A few of the tricks in this were obviously left out because I don’t want to spoil what they’re working on. But in-between the tiny rail spot and the bank to curb spot, we witnessed some really crazy skating. For a day when I thought we’d be mostly side-lined and spectating, we actually all got quite a bit done. - Cody Sanders.
Episode 19 (December 2023) with Special Guest: Julien Cudot.
Episode 18 (November 2023)
I’m genuinely surprised we had a session this weekend. We woke up to rain and blazing humidity. But we decided to roll the dice and go to the meetup spot anyway hoping for a chance that it would dry. The ground was shockingly slippery, as were the ledges after some rain.
It would dry up just enough to skate and then drizzle again. The heat/rain combo was causing my camera lens to fog up throughout the day as well. It didn’t stop us from trying. I’m an optimist. I think even when we’re being thrown curveballs, it just changes the kind of fun we’ll have.
However, that’s only the case when it comes to spots. It’s not at all the case when your car won’t start. The second spot, my car battery died. The third spot, Andrew got a flat tire. And I had to leave early in the middle of the day for a dog costume contest. Somehow, we still got something done though. Congratulations to my dog for getting 3rd place in her costume contest. - Cody Sanders.
Apparently we’re more productive when I’m 5 hours late, half the crew is missing and we only go to two spots… I’m a little bummed I didn’t bring my skates to this one. We’re finally skating normal spots. I don’t even like handicap rails but man… The one we went to was so perfect. Fresh out of a skate video from 2002. Needed more tap dancing. - Cody Sanders.

We’re back! I mean.. I guess we never really fully left, but we’re back to regular weekly sessions. See yall in Miami next week! - Cody Sanders.
I took a week or two break, but we’re back at it again! This was probably the last session before the brutal heat of Texas summer sets in. The first spot was really cool. I just wish we had the time/ motivation to go back and rub-brick the whole ledge.
It looks perfect right?… Well… You’d be mistaken. The lines are really tight and weird. I think I filmed more awkward falls then I did lands. The sad part is, I didn’t even post them all. It would have been 15 minutes of very awkward falls and trips around the corners, haha. Although it might look like the easiest spot of the day, I think it may have been the hardest.
Spot 2 was… awful. I’m noticing a trend during these sessions, all of our spots are awful, haha. It was cool that Kraft and jferg showed up though. I can’t imagine showing up to a street session and the first trick you do being an alleyoop fish up and under rail… Kraft is wild. Spot 3, classic spot. A chill 6 or 7 stair downledge, so this one must not have been that bad right? Nah, no one even skated the down ledges.
They would rather try and roll up the things at high speeds… Did it work out? You’ll find out. But also, I’ll tell you. The answer is… Yes/no. Haha. Overall, another beautiful session. Dreadful falls, most of which I missed off of camera. But I’m happy everyone is ok.. I mean, they’re ok enough. Walk it off. - Cody Sanders.

Episode 8 (April 2023)
Our original goal this weekend was to take Zachary Gutweiler to only the biggest spots. Well, one thing leads to another and the session just takes organic turns and none of the spots ended up actually being that big.Whoops. Michael Kraft confessed at the first spot that he accidentally at the wrong kind of gummies before the session. Honestly, it would make more sense if he did that every time he skates. That would explain his trick/ spot selection, haha. […]- Cody Sanders.
Episode 9 - Waco, Texas - May 2023
I’m up way too late finishing this one. I have to work in the morning. But I’m still going to try my best to describe last weekend. We drove a couple of hours away to the city of Waco, Texas. It’s a smaller town between Dallas and Austin, so a few of our friends from Dallas met us there. Mick Casals lives there as well. Mick’s about the only reason I’d visit there. - Cody Sanders.
Episode 10 - May 2023
Man. I can’t believe I made it to the tenth episode. I didn’t realize how much work this was going to be when I started this project, but I’m happy it’s getting done. This week we went to Temple, TX. It’s only about an hour away from where we live. I like skating small towns. The skate spots are generally older. There’s a lot of character to them. Temple was no exception. - Cody Sanders.

No one is answering in the group text. It’s Saturday, where is everyone? The first spot was a complete disaster. Getting lost, can’t find our friends, the ledges are capped, but we made the most of it.
I guess since no ones around, we can finally check out the bad spots. The spots that look great on film, but you don’t want to bring 20 people to, ya know? Filming these glorified b-roll edits is a lot of fun, but we’ve been working on “real” edits this entire time too. I just haven’t been posting the bigger tricks in the 4TS videos.
I did put a few of the bigger tricks in this one though. Zach Gutweiler is a madman and what he sessions for fun, I wouldn’t touch. This edit is a bit of a slow starter, but the ending is pretty sweet. - Cody Sanders.
