FEATURED ARTIST CHET CHILDRESS – PART 2

PUBLISHED August 21, 2013

Chet Childress might very well be the most straight up, real person that we have ever come in contact with. He says it like it is and doesn’t bull shit if he doesn’t like who you are or what you’re doing. His art is his way of voicing his opinions about the world and letting out the inspiration he gathers from seeing and skating in new places. A natural born wanderer, Chet loves being on the road and soaking up the new experiences that create the ideas in his head.

While we were in Denver, we had the pleasure of going on a weekend long camping trip with him and a couple of other good friends. We skated some of Colorado’s finest mountain parks and took in the nature around us. We topped it all off by skating a barrier spot on the side of the highway. The yellow caution vests one of our friends left in the van finally got some use. Ten minutes and two clips later, the sherif arrived and questioned our activity. We apologized and got off with a warning and a compliment on our safety vests…

SOUR DIESEL SUNDAYS

PUBLISHED August 19, 2013

The United States is a melting pot of all different cultures and people so it is hard to find food that is traditional to certain regions or areas since everyone is an immigrant at some point. We decided to hop on the green rush and take advantage of Colorado’s newly signed legislation that legalizes the recreational use of Marijuana.
