Ugly Ducklings: January 2014

The saying goes, "Whats ugly on the outside, can be beautiful on the inside" or something along those lines. These photos may not have found a home, but this is the reason why I created this feature; so that these photos get a chance to embrace their 15 seconds of fame. So before I ramble on any longer, here's January's Ugly Ducklings!

January's Ugly Ducklings: Sean Imes, Kevin Baekkel, Blake Carpenter, Jack McNulty, Billy Davenport & Jared Cleland.

Happy New Years!!! Cheers to another year of skating and good vibes! Thanks for continuing to support and check out the site!

On a dry and hot day, the one place where Kevin laid was the ground...not a good day for skating.

Joey Brezinski Sequence in Transworld

I somehow grabbed a spot in the newest November issue of Transworld as part of the "Tested Development" article! We went back to this famous manual pad at Dorsey High numerous times to get this trick and through the mental breakdowns and near lands, he pulled through and rolled away. The crazy thing is that he snapped his board not too long before the land and was about to quit. Luckily I had my board which was a Cliché (Joey) pro model so I let him use my beat up board and he somehow did it not too long after. This is a spot thats been skated tons of times on the other side of the manny pad, but I've never seen anyone skate it this way, so it was pretty sick to see it skated differently than usual. Shout out to Joey for being a boss and nailing it right in time!
