Kyle Shifflett – blaster at Eden Prairie

MVP of the trip goes to this man right here. Kyle was hungry, and he went for it. When he’s not train hopping and you’re lucky enough to get him on a trip you’re stoked. He fucked shit up.

Cole Wyatt – lip to ‘cane at The Foundation

“Coal pile” came up with the name of our trip before we left. I applaud his efforts to produce team camaraderie but in retrospect after looking at his own profile picture and a few others we should have called it “peach fuzz tour 2013.” The little guy’s bag-o-tricks will surprise you though. This spot was super rad. All kinds of DIY stuff.

Blaine Harper – bluntslide at the Volcano banks

Otherwise known as “sparky” or “muscles,” Blaine hails from Junction City, KS. He’s a little shit-talker and a human wrecking-ball. And he will get the song “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” stuck in your head for no reason…

JP Redmon – f/s blunt

Nick Ward is a true friend and quite the character. It was great having you along on the trip man, and thanks for shooting photos like this one. The fact that you befriended a miniature boy and convinced him to stand on the bench as I bluntslid it speaks volumes, brother! Thumbs up!

Charlie Dick – back smith

Chuck D. is from Topeka, KS and smoothly annihilates anything that lies before him. He also buys coffee makers for people who don’t have them in their houses. Which reminds me, thanks for your hospitality Jack, Ally, Jake, and Lilly!

Micah Johnson – nosegrind

Micah is an old friend who’s always killed it and was kind enough to show us around St. Paul on a Sunday night. Keep ripping, dog.

Kyle Shifflett – transfer

Kyle bounced his back wheel on this one but that wasn’t going to keep him from rolling away. He did it again for good measure. He also nearly broke his neck on a boneless attempt… seriously. Check the footage. It’s fucked.

Josiah Tripoli – 180 no comply

Josiah is a strange bird. He won’t take advice. He won’t skate something he doesn’t want to. If he wants a trick he will most likely get it. But he does it his own way and it’s hard to tell if he even cares if you capture it or not. You’re not easy to work with, kid, but you kill it. This gap is no joke.
