Last session of 2011 in Vegas...Yoshida twins in LA!

Last sessionof 2011 in Las Vegas went down today. A couple days ago I was driving down the street and spotted some dude with 4 pegs on a Zion frame. What do ya know, it's Louis! I haven't seen that dude for 2 years or so.  So I hit up some other riders and Josh came out and we had a session.



We sessioned this court while some dude that looked like Kotaro Tanaka played tennis on the next court. 



 Josh still got it. Turbining away.



Louis had some new moves...dumping into turbine hitchhikers.



I'm still on spin mode for a bit...





This story I was lagging on, but Nao and Koh Yoshida (TWINS!!) from Yokohama,  Japan visited LA!

This is Koh....


This is Nao...



AF THE NAYSAER, Anthony and I took these dudes to Ma Dang Sae, A cheap and really good all you can eat Korean BBQ. Koh handled the Grill!

 
Names forever etched out at a legendary LA flatland spot. Ralphs!


 

This spot is right across from the police station. We didn't see Eddie Murphy though...



I asked them what they like to eat. They said JUNK FOOD! Best junk food in town. In-n-out! 



Koh trying to conceal his MJ glove on H.wood blvd! LOL!


Chinese Theater...



The day looked rainy early on, but the blue sky opened up and we had a good session! 


Nao.


Koh.



In the Lab.

You know what it is....


I took them to Jin-ya for some noodles. There were stoked on the Yokohama style noodles. They noted that they were the same awesome quality as at home! Check their faces. They ain't lyin'!

Of course you can't come to LA and not eat a burrito. STOKED!

Keep it global.

Life and times from the west coast and beyond....this time we are taking it from the west coast to the space coast. Check this time lapse from the international space station.  Chill for a moment and remove your mind from the stress of the economic collapse and check the planet from this perspective.

Hawaii - Random Things part 2.



Pali Mountain vista point with tour guide Kala.



There were tons of these little spots around Oahu where you could swim in clean ocean water.


Yup....


Yo' boy, on duty, securing Hanauma Bay. All sorts of Ruckus was going down....LOL!


Just barely caught this xB-zee. the official flatland transport.




Here's an air quality comparison:

In picture one, (Los Angeles) a shot of the Hollywood hills from Studio City parking lot on a sunny evening. The hills are a few blocks away, but seem far 'cuz of the diffusion caused by smog.


In picture two, (Hawaii) Diamond Head, is farther away, but it looks like it must be a couple blocks. Crystal clear....



Lookin' for a new lab....
