Back in the Game

Been gone for Thanksgiving and couldn't update the site, but I'm back in San Antonio again. Got a way better line than this today, but this was the throwaway clip. Enjoy.

Smokey Shots

Lane got these at the mini-ramp palooza on Friday. I, unfortunately, could not attend. Spencer Noe got some clips from there, I believe. Expect a video from him up pretty soon.

Throwaway Monty and some Daily Kill

Been hard at work on the Winter montage and here is some bi-product from it. Just first of many throwaway videos to come so expect better and more throwaway. The montage is actually looking pretty good so far.

Lane Hoggard has made us a new sign, will be used for something in the future for sure.

Joaquin Herrera has, yet again, brought us some more photos. One is a really high Front Side Bigspin done by Josh Solis. The other is an unknown trick performed by Dallas Oneil, possibly a Kickflip 50-50.

This is the product of the other night's session with the new Churchill Chapter to ATAM. No one else got footage for this montage unfortunately, so this is just Grant McConnell and Aarron Snyder shredding some as usual, killing it. Filmed by Jared Ortiz and Alec Keith, editing by Jared Ortiz.

New Chapter

Against The Average Mind just got bigger. We have conjoined our group with some new homies. Expect a lot more people to start getting footage and be in the montage. Got two, I think, new photographers-ish and one other filmer. We're all pretty hyped on this, the crew is now a an actual crew of guys. he have us some photos from last night, just a preview of what is going to be in the montage and more.

Stephen has earned himself yet another clip of the week. Just the opposite of what he wanted to happen. Happy early birthday, buddy.

Filming still in progress.

We had an ATAM style Texas Death Match at USK8 on the super mini. Grant and Stephen go at it pretty hard. Grant gets knocked off once, but takes revenge on Stephen. Stephen then goes for the kill and straight hammers Grant in the last two rounds, see for yourself.

Montage still in the making.

Boerne Skateboard Contest/Jam

There was a contest at Boerne skate park this weekend, on November 6th. I unfortunately didn't make it to get some film, but our very own Grant McConnell and Aarron Snyder did. This contest was a jam format and un-sponsored skateboarder were only allowed. With that said, Grant came out in 2nd place for his division and Aarron came out with 3rd for his division, which were both the same divisions. Pretty good for our riders, pretty GNARBUCKETS...

Our new banner is brought to us by Ian Deloney. It's actually quite an old photo, I just decided to now use it.

Montage is still underway.
