Text by Nick WoodImages by Josh Diaz Last year the last man standing contest was the highlight of myextensive travels, so this year it was not an option to miss it. Our firstday started with my 7am arrival at JFK straight to Brooklyn for a session thathad a bad out look at first. It was windy and raining, but the NY kidswanted to get down regardless. At the first spot I met Dave Lang who waswarming up on transfer rails in the rain. Witch by the way, if you going tomake a first impression on someone from a boot company I can think of nobetter way. We were all over Brooklyn and got a lot of good shots. Dave Lang: Nailing trick after trick in NYC The transfer rail quickly dried and some more locals showed up to shred.Sean Alligator-ati, Jesus Medina, Land and my-self(wood) jammed out. Therewas some transfers style shots and I got a line that I was happy about. Mason Richard made it to New York P.S: All of the sessions will be in my proper edit on remz.com next week.Josh (Psyko creator) thought it was funny to walk us 2.5 mile acrossBrooklyn. But it was a badass view with a bank to barrier ledge and somecollapsed docks that made for nice terrain. We ended up at a gap to outledge to top it off and I was going to skate but the boys here are to goodto fast and I wanted to film all the madness. First day was veryprofessional, good skating and Dave Lang definitely stole the show. We fought and won our battle with mother nature on Tuesday but today shewasn’t as nice. I waited out the rain all morning while I anticipated mypackage of prizes from Remz. Dave Lang posing in the rain But at 1:30 we cut out to Manhattan. Streetswere wet but as Bladers do we adapt, we found gritty ground, undercoverspots, and spots that were not slick unless wet. Today along withyesterday’s posse we met up with the Texan prodigy Mason Richard who washaving his very first day in NYC. On the lower east side the crew was nailingtricks despite the soaked floor. My favorite spot was a cessslide spot onthe harbor with a great view. Wet as hell everyone jammed out and we gotsome good shots. Nick Wood likes the scenery in New York Tomorrow the weather man predicts clear sky, so look out for a qualityupdate. And when I get home the official edit will be coming as well. For now followthe snapshots and some corny Iphone B-roll footage. Check back in some hours!
