March 30th, 2009 · 8 Comments

March 23rd, 2009 · 1 Comment

Well we missed the first pumping spring session at The Wall. It was painful to wake up early Saturday morning and check the cams to find solid swell. I was heading down to the cottage to meet up with Banane for some laps at Jay Peak. The above shot was from yesterday which was just […]

GTD @ plank, on my Mac and soon in teams

March 19th, 2009 · 1 Comment

No — I use about 85% of David’s workflow to keep track of my work (@plankdesign) and it’s slowly moving into everything I need to get done. I’ve been working with different systems over the past […]

The 6th sense

March 13th, 2009 · Comments Off on The 6th sense

This video offers a true glimpse into the future. Might seem clunky now — I can guarantee it won’t be for long. I say there’s something commercial like this that works via highspeed Bluetooth to your iPhone before 2014. Maybe it will come from Apple (one can dream). Watch the video here.

Dave and the 628$ skateboarding ticket in MTL

March 5th, 2009 · 17 Comments

My good buddy Dave Bouthillier is fighting the ridiculous fine imposed by the city of MTL and the police. Dave was given a whopping 628$ ticket for skateboarding (even though he was just standing around) at Montreal’s “Peace Park” on the corner of St. Laurent Blvd. / René Lévesque Blvd. Skateboarding at peace Park has […]

Some pow day footage at jay from stevey on Vimeo. Banane used his old Sony cam to “follow cam” me on a run at Jay Peak last giant pow day. Shaky/pukey footage but fun none the less. Love it.
