Foundation What the F?! F that! Let's F-ing Skate!

Ok you fricking skate destoyers. I just happened to be at Crossroads skate show this last weekend and all of a sudden I see Angel Ramirez, then Nick Merlino, then Dan Murphy, WTF?!?! I saw Corey but I knew he would be there. Tall as F Corey Duffel. Of all a sudden Abdias Rivera was standing in front of me. Something was going on? A conspiracy? A coup de teat? Is it my birthday? Who else? Oh shit it's the skate monster, Nick Merlino. And wait I know that guy but I have not met him yet personally, Marquis Preston, in the house! Where's Sierra? I bet he's here somewhere.

All of a sudden, F Team Manger, Mike "The Sinc" Sinclair is standing directly in front of me. "Swank, I have the entire F team with me here. Plus I have three new secret weapons (riders). We are going on a Southwest tour to El Paso Texas and you can't stop us!" Next thing you know they are all running towards the parking lot where two vans awaited them all. I ran after them with my camera in hand. When I caught up with them they were quickly throwing bags, boards and bodies into the vans. I saw three dudes I have never seen before.

I yelled out after than and all of a sudden bam! I got blind sided but someone. I was out cold.

I woke up sometime later. A crowd of Crossroads rowdies around me pouring beer on me and laughing loudly. I jumped up and got away from the anarchy crowd. The F team and vans were long gone.  I felt my camera in my pocket and pulled it out. I checked out the photos and this is what I found.

Foundation Super Co. team is on fire and traveling east through AZ, NM and TX ending up in El Paso  for a massive rally! Look out for them, they might knock you out too.

Foundation F-U! Agenda Anahiem 2011

Yes we were there. I was setting up the TY hard goods booth solo after Barker, Director of Affairs, left back to SD. It was a 10x10 and I was struggling and it reminded me of 1994 back in the day. But Brad Staba was close by setting up Skate Mental booth which was fun. He kept giving me dirty looks and thumbs up which kept me confused. We had Destructo and DLX to our left. DGK and Girl across from us. Sole Tech to our right and of course the Dekline booth right next door. The show was busy and fun. Agenda/Berrics had a bunch of core retailers flown in from all of over USA. Thanks was cool. People were hyped and I practically lost my voice talking so much. Mark Waters was hasseling me all to hell but I love that guy. He just had a baby boy. Sole tech ripped off our F... that campaign with some sweet F-you propaganda. For it's P-U in the shoe technology. It's ok, I understand. It's good shit! Kevin F was busy hella at the Dekline booth. Made some good distro action there. Ok here comes the pics! Party on people.
