A Custom Board & Amazing People (Photo Blog)

Updated: 3 days ago

I'm getting Daniel Nelson from Happy Little Slabs to make a custom skateboard for Fennario and I to take to skateparks all over Canada and the USA. Daniel is constantly building an evolving skatepark of his own at his home. He's a great guy, and his vision is pretty tight!

I recently met the photography teacher from the high school in Nelson because of a donation we made. It turns out that Jackie (Zelt) is a fantastic person too. She teaches skateboarding to kids at the local park in Nelson. Because of this major development, I wanted her to help design the board with Daniel. There's no way I could leave her outta this 'cause I knew it'd blow her mind. I asked her to come somewhere awesome with me, but I wouldn't tell her anything. She agreed to come, but was ever escalatingly curious. I dragged it out and drove her half nuts...on purpose. It was worth it, she was stoked!


After I do my first real long trip, I'm gonna give the board to my friend's son, Indra. He doesn't know a thing about it, but is insanely into skateboarding. We're gonna go pick it up for his 13th birthday...which is a few days apart from Daniel's.

Good times with good people, doin' awesome stuff.

These are the photos from it all, but I've also been writing a little series about it all. You can find them here...
