My life long session buddy! Mickey Gaidos

Tuesday, September 29th, 2009


Today my boy Mickey Gaidos came over for  a session at my home spot. Mickey is a big reason I began riding flatland and I owe a ton of thanks to him for that. I met Mickey when I was 12 years old and since that day we have been obsessed with riding with each other for so many reasons. I could blab for days about why we love riding with each other. The obvious reason is that we know that flatland has brought us together. It’s very crazy to think that because of a 20 inch bike you can find a life long friend. That is exactly what happened with me and Mickey. We both know that we owe thanks to flatland for our awesome friendship and it shows in every session we have. We have had so many memorable sessions through-out our friendship. We will roll out “anytime” of “anyday” to meet up and ride. That is how it has always been and always will be. We have ridden and watched the sun rise, ridden when we were too tired to walk, and the best sessions were when we rode

and then talked about our love for flatland.




 Mickey is by far one of the most talented riders on the planet. I have always admired his love for flatland because he seemed to be driven by the challenge of the trick. I have watched him pull more tricks than I will ever learn. He will learn a trick simply to get feeling of pulling something new. I am pretty sure he is addicted to that feeling and that is the reason he is the the most progressive rider I will ever know. I wanted to throw him a special thanks in this post for all times he rolled out to share that beautiful feeling of flatland with me. Most importantly I wanted to thank him for all the years of motivation and all the years of friendship. When the session calls…..  We will be there…. Until the end….

Demos in the Chicago Redbull Office

Riding in the office!


I flew into Chicago last night because Redbull was throwing a party at their new office. I spent the day hanging out, doing a little flatland, and shooting some photos for a local Chicago magazine. It was yet again another fun trip on list for 2009. Right now I am chilling in my hotel starting to pack for my 7:00 a.m flight that heads back to Louisiana..  ahhh..  Gotta get some sleep tonight!

My trip to the nasty!

Thursday, September 17th, 2009

Sorry for the late update but I have been on a really crazy schedule traveling all over the midwest doing a ton of College tours for Red Bull. It has been a month jammed packed with with nothing but traveling but I have been loving every second of it. Since it would take forever to talk about every trip I am going to talk about my favorite one so far. I just did some demos around Detroit, Michigan yesterday and then I had Justin Miller take about a 2 hour drive to come pick me up so I could spend some time with him and his family back in the good ol’ town of Saginaw.  Now this was a very special trip for me for many reasons. I have traveled all over the world with Justin and It was always a dream of mine to see his home town and visit his family. I also had a dream of riding with him at his personal riding spot. I also just purchased an investment house in his home town so it was really awesome to check it out before it gets rented out. Thanks to Justin & Cris for showing me around the Nasty! I love you guys!
