Solomon here. A few weeks ago I called my friend Jules to see if he was free to skate. Jules is an up-and-coming photographer who regularly contributes to Contributing Editor and I’ve seen his work in quite a few other elite fashion articles. Jules, who always has his camera with him, was down to skate and excited to get some shots in. It was windy, freezing and a little wet but time is precious in this city that never sleeps and the streets were finally clear of enough snow that we could finally skate without worrying about wiping out every push. Brooklyn we go hard.
Word. So I’m heading to Austin, TX for SXSW tomorrow. That’s right..awesome music, amazing weather, beautiful people and hills! I’ve been stuck in the NYC for the whole Winter season and I am beyond stoked to be taking a break! I’ll be gone for a week so I’ve stayed super late at the shop today to get caught up and drop a little material for you to read while I’m gone. I’m planning on updating you here at least once but I’m sure you’ll understand if I don’t. If you want to keep up with what’s going on during the music festival follow me on twitter at “stayskatin”. I want to leave you with more but my brain is almost as dead as my body and I have a long trek home…upstairs. Ha. I never get tired of that one. So I’ll see you guys when I return from the “great state”. Much love and as always….Stay Skatin’.
