ift from the Be-Mag msgboard continues his tradition of touring in his lecture-free time with Buddy4, hailing from New Haven to Boston, Bridegport, Brooklyn, Virginia, Greenville, and back to his home state of Florida meeting new and old friends, sleeping through his run at Pow-wow and... having a blast!
Introduction by Be-Mag
Edit & write-up by ift
Living in Bridgeport, Connecticut this Spring allowed me to meet new friends and hang with good people including Be-Maggers mudhut jollyrancher, nai, drunkenmonkey, andrew nemo and ryanmatthewdaily.
I had two weeks to fill between moving from CT and the 7th Panhandle Pow-wow, so I decided to visit Virginia, South Carolina, Macon, and Tallahassee on my way to the contest. Rain interrupted quite a few skate days in SC, Macon, Tallahassee, and at the Pow-wow, but that didn't prevent me from getting in a lot of hang time with friends in addition to almost as much skating as I would have wanted to do anyway.
The 7th Pow-wow was understandably disappointing to those that had to leave Sunday morning. Unfortunately it rained nearly non-stop from the time I got to Jacksonville Thursday before the contest until the time I woke up at noon on Sunday (sleeping through my heat in the 25 and up division). Again I didn't let the rain take away from an incredible weekend partying with everyone that came to town. The Pow-wow continues to be one of my most anticipated weekends of the year thanks to the hard work of Blake Taylor and many others.
After Pow-wow I took some time to visit with my family in Tampa, and I got in a few sessions with the Tampa Blade Crew. Now it's time to pack my car again to continue my education in Miami for the rest of the year. I don't think I'll be able to 'Buddy Tour' again for a while, but luckily Blake Taylor lives in Miami to provide company and motivation to skate and film.
See you next time!
