We've been hanging out at the beach for the last few days. Now that's not really very interesting to report about in a normal case but when the Soul Bowl is built up on the sand and a whole lot of pros are invited to shred on the ramp, it's a different story. Add a "BMX Legends" jam and you've got yourself an event that you did not want to miss. The whole BMX contest a part of the US Open of Surfing festival and it's held right down in Huntington Beach. It turns the town upside down with tons of people on the streets and people on the road showing off their exclusive cars and motorcycles. It's almost like a circus but an ultimate weekend if you just want to watch people.
The BMX Legends jam turned out pretty good but could have been better if Mike Dominguez had not been injured, Tony Murray would have shown up in time to ride the bowl and if Eddie Fiola would have stepped on the bike. The riders who put on a hell of a show were Xavier Mendez, Dave Voelker, Brian Blyther and Ron Wilkerson. It went from good to better and the grand finale was insane.
Like BMX, graffiti is worldwide. We found these pieces on a trip in the South of France in a village that wasn't as "Urban" as you would think by seeing all this paint on the walls. Some of them are pretty decent but others aren't the best we've ever seen. We still cropped the photos, re-sized them one by one, saved them for web use, uploaded them one by one in the system for you to see. Enjoy. I hope.

Life is good. I left for California earlier this week. Took a train to the airport, checked in and had to board right away. Right before hopping on the plane the lady said I had been upgraded to seat number 6G. Now if you look on your left when you enter one of those big planes and see those huge comfy chairs that fold all the way back and turn into a bed, now I was in one of those! The flight started with a glass of champagne, and another one, and one more..........

We've also asked Andy to comment on his version of the converter, since he's been working on it the past few months now. Here's what Andy had to say: "Sometimes we all have good ideas.
