Mike Corts is an interesting fellow… Lover of ice cream and smoothies, maker of our last video “love it or leave it”, ex-hotel handyman, ex-fbm employee, good vibed, mid-west made, lover of bad movies, and totally down for whatever comes his way. Mike has recently moved back from cali to his home town around akron ohio. Glad to have this dude back. He is a sight for sore eyes! Mike recently returned from a roadtrip with us from austin texas… More to come!

A few days ago there was a undeclared team meeting at the louisville skatepark. Its been almost a year since that many team members were in the same place at the same time. Too bad it was raining the entire time. We rolled dice amd drank 40s instead. Bugsy, bojangles marcas grubbs, fids, leland, and mike corts. Were those in attendance. South end legend dillon deckerd was there for support.
Well, its fullpipe friday!! Everyone has been asking wtf is going on with the louisville skatepark?!? Are they tearing the fullpipe out?!?! yes and no, they are taking that section out with the deep bowls and fullpipe for the highway expansion project but the deal is they have to replace what the take out. So basically theyre scooting some stuff around and making another fullpipe shooting off the otherway, but this time with a few more mods and a bit more modern. The city meeting we went to a few weeks ago went really well… They didnt slack and got the right people for the job. Good job louisville. Constuction will start on the new park in december and hopefully will be dont by early as april. So if you wanna get your last runs… Bring it!! The city is rushing on this because they cant go on with their highway expansion until then. Heres some photos of fids, vert legend pat miller, and local anthony barmore killing it.
Over the weekend fids, speds, illviolation and your truly headed for the STL for the JUKE TRAIL JAM. Lot of old friends and a few new ones. Good to see everyone… Ledgend Rick Molinterno, Zack Warden, and the Fids were on hamd to wittness the festivities. Thanks for the good time guys… See ya next year.
