This years “MAKE IT COUNT” contest series has been incredible, so I was really looking forward to seeing what the Europeans had in store. While our main focus was the Europe Make It Count finals, we couldn’t just sit there and allow our down time in Berlin to slip away. We were out for a good time, and having a solid crew is essential. In this case, nobody missed a beat; everyone was down to skate, lurk the streets at night or make up ridiculous songs on the guitar and sing them at the tops of our lungs. Don’t get me wrong, I love me some good ‘ol America, but I miss Berlin already. Here are some Prints and Polaroids from our adventures in Berlin:

Can’t wait till next year.
This morning I stumbled across a polaroid I took not so long ago, and was reminded how much I love to look at it. Specifically, Because it transports me to the time and place it was taken. As skateboarders we all know this feeling; the vibration of not-so-smooth asphalt massaging the soles of your feet accompanied by the rattling hum of a loose bolt or two. This feeling is priceless, and should never be taken for granted. Go skateboard, you will not regret it if you live.
