Having Nothing : [

As most of you know, i spent the last week at Ethan Ebelings house and had the time of my life. It was great until i left because i forgot to transfer my fingerboard stuff, and camera from his car to my car. I brought my laptop, and clothes but not that stuff. Don't ask how i could have let that happen. I just wasn't thinking.

Anyway, the point of my article is that because i forgot everything to fingerboard at his house, it has forced me to fingerboard without a camera, and good fingerboard stuff. When i got home, i got a package from Sydnee. it was my Naipe. The deck is sick! I put on esmooth, and luckily had my g7s from my g12 which i had in my pocket. I scrounged my floor for screws, and set it up. Withing this time that i havent had a camera and stuff, it reminded me what real fingerboarding is about.

I made a ramp out of cardboard, a damn good ramp out of cardboard. Since my only wood deck is the Naipe at the moment, i learned all my tricks on it, and was forced to work with what i had, instead of being able to change around the setup whenever i wanted.

It reminded me of when i started in 06, and all i had was tech decks, and skate grip. I used one tech deck, and made all my ramps out of cardboard. I kinda like having no camera, but i really od miss it, and realize i have alot of reasons to film, all the time.

Anyway, keep this in mind too. I'm fresh out of inspirational articles for now, hope you enjoy my thoughts!
