favourite memories from back in the day?  Blowing out the gas can on fire and not blowing my head up, we where trying to get the last snow out of the damn dam (Christies) to skate it, figured gas would do the trick somehow the gas can nozzle lit, and because i was half lit about to be fully lit, some sorta divne intervention must of happened it should have blown up in my face but it went out,  when I proudly displayed my fire extinguishing skills all 3 of the Wing lads Joe, Toad and Ickabod where running faster than I`ve seen any one run in the other direction. I have a million stories ...Jonzey at Wendy`s pretending to be retarded with his suicidal flyaway then walking out on his hands.  skatezone vert ramp slam fest, all the labor day skate/beer fests. getting away with alot of crazy shit alot of which these stories will never be made available to the public
