One Sunday we went to the foothills, got hassled by the police for parking badly in Carnation, and then skated Duvall. We got a little bit of video from there.
2014 comes to a close and it marks another year for us being here. Our first post was back in 2011. in the last year we have been on some cool trips (videos to come) and have met some new people on the net and out skating. We even got a flow team. Not bad for being a few years old. New Year’s Day we got out and skated like it was a Sunday and hit up the Southpark skatepark here in South Seattle. A good time! 2015 looks to be even better after we heal from some tweaks. More trips more videos, tshirts, stickers and who knows what else. Thanks for your support for us and skating in general. We here at Oh My Back wouldn’t have much if we didn’t have skating to balance out all the bullshit.
See you out there!
So it’s true… we now have a flow team. We are proud to announce Levi Starkweather and Oliver Starkweather have joined Oh My Back! We dig their style and attitude and we think they fit right into our down to skate and have fun mentality.
So check out their welcome video and look out for more stuff from these guys in the future.
Also check out Levi ripping up the Delridge park in this video that Thrasher put up a while back.
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.
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.
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!
