Old man winter has really been taking it out on us here in Utah. The falling snow is now being measured in feet instead of inches, which makes skating outside pretty much non existent. The only way to strap up during the dead of winter is to head to Wasatch Action Indoor Sports Park (or WASP as we refer to it) to get some indoor blading done. Below you’ll find a few photos from todays session. Forgive the graininess as I didn’t realize my ISO was to the moon.
It seems as though Hazen Bell is on a mission, a mission to destroy every skate spot in SLC and surrounding areas. On the day we all decide to give thanks, Hazen and Alex Bass released a monster of an edit. Hazen has had a really busy summer and fall, not only filming for my project but Erik Bill’s video as well which is set to release in December and also this project with Alex. Lets not forget he also recently became a father so considering how busy this guy is it is truly amazing how much content he has been putting out lately. If there is anything I can give thanks for today it is the fact that Hazen Bell decided to start rollerblading all those years ago.
I’ve been going out of town lately and so that has obviously had an effect on me updating the blog. Anyways, I wanted to post the photos we shot a few weekends ago before the weather turned to shit. I hope you all enjoy. Photos shot by Kirill Braynin and edited by me.
Fall is here and fully knowing the nice weather wont last too much longer we felt it was necessary to try and film as much as we could this Saturday. All in all we had a pretty fantastic day with lots of tricks, filming, photos and just all around good times. Not to mention the fall colors with our pumpkin spiced lattes from Starbucks made the day really nice.

Well the summer has officially come to a close. Of course this is always seen as such a bummer knowing the cold is near. Because of this I decided to throw the second annual BBQ and Blade event at our favorite location Rose Park Skate park. Along with the event we also premiered my second release “This is Livin” at the Beehive Social Club which was very special to me mostly due to the fact that it felt much more “organic” than say my first video mostly due to there being less pressure on everyone to perform such gnarly stunts.
Either way I couldn’t have been happier with the event. The skate gods held off the rain for the entire BBQ and I was able to give out free stuff to people who were truly stoked to be there. I want to thank all the amazing sponsors for helping out and being the best at what they do. Rollerwarehouse, Razors and Ground Control, Oak City Skate Shop, and especially to my sponsor K2 skates for always taking care of me and making this event legit.
