So here in the USA it’s Thanksgiving. There’s a lot of terrible things happening here so it’s difficult sometimes to look at the positive. Here at Oh My Back I know that we are all thankful for skateboarding and our crew. We are thick as thieves and have a lot of fun skating and bullshitting the world away on the regular.
So enjoy your family and friends, enjoy the time away from work if you are lucky enough to have the holiday off, and support your local skate shops. I encourage staying away from the large corporate mindfuck of the Friday following today and do something else…. maybe… I don’t know…. skateboard.
I still have a lot of video to edit and I know I keep promising to do that. Hopefully I will get to it after all the software updates and cooking today.
See you out there! Go skate!

We have a fresh batch of circle logo shirts and pullover hoodies over in the Merch Store for you to get your grubby little mitts on. Too late for Halloween but somebody’s having a birthday soon.
By the way… Thanks for the nearly 600 people who have checked the thumbs up on our little corner of Facebook and also the fun we are having with our nearly 500 Instagram pals.
Recently some of our good friends accross the pond went to Hamburg and made a little video and have an article over at ¿confusion? so check that out…
Now that the weather has turned into complete crap we will be skating indoors or under bridges and there will be a little more time for editing video. So check back for that along with some flow team announcements (better late than never kids) and other fun stuff….
Boxes of Death is out on tour heading to California and ending up in Seattle. Always super cool. Check the website and check this video.
We know we haven’t updated for a long time but we have been skating while the weather has been excellent. We have video to edit, new team members to talk about, t-shirts in the works and other exciting stuff. When we get some crap weather we will get you all updated.
A cool little clip about a great DIY spot from Peter Hanson. We are working on some other video for you as well so don’t worry.
Somewhat east of us on an island that is similar to Seattle in as much as it’s damp there are some skaters that we know. Nearly everyone has a cool nickname and has a good time skating. A lot like us, although we have not so many nicknames.
Our UK Oh My Back guy in residence, Scumtash (see… I wasn’t lying about nicknames!), has compiled some video for your viewing pleasure. Made me want to go skate!
We are having so much fun seeing our shirts and stickers out in the world! This shot was a screen grab from a video up on the Thrasher site where at about 2:30 in Chris Miller gets a hug from Christian Hosoi and just to the right of them Simon Reynolds is wearing an Oh My Back shirt. How cool is that? Super cool to us!
Thanks to John and Olga Aguilar for taking shirts and stickers to California and getting some people into them!
Epic Sundays are hopefully going to be a life long habit. Northwestern Washington Indoor multi level mini ramp. Super fun. Watch us suck at skating whilst having tons of fun.

We have been getting together to skate on Sundays for a while. Sometimes they are epic days for us. We have so much fun that we wanted to share it with you. So we are making it a point to do more than one Epic Sunday video (we have another one ready to edit) and hopefully we will get to do a bunch of them before we are done.
Hopefully you enjoy this as much as we did. But then again watching isn’t as good as doing. Go skate!!
