Augusto and Pablo hail from Florida… Well, I tell you what, seeing some southern Bladers hit me up to get the job done always great. These two guys are all about it. Moronie took care of the arrangements and these guys took care of business. It’s nice to be reminded of what Blading is, can and will be once again when going out to shoot with these guys. Show up late, get on the road, and handle “the business.” Augusto is the, shall we say, Pablo Escobar… Pablo, well he is more the, theatrical version of Michael Cera. Put them together and good times always prevail. A reminder of what it was like to be a “newbie” in NYC when I moved her three and a half years ago now… So young and naive. HAHA. Giving them the TRUE “WALK” through of NYC Sean Grossman and Sal Zosa manned up to show myself and the “Gringos” Long Island. Without these two we would not have been able to accomplish what we set out to accomplish. Wahooo! For the insider info, Long Island has the “SPOTS.”
That was Saturday, so it was nice to be able to show them Brooklyn on Sunday. A quick trip through the Ghetto to get to the real deal. Blah blah blah, we got these pics and sealed the deal. I hope, no I wish that every Blader I shot with was this juiced to just BLADE!!!!! Blade until their legs go to jelly… Blade until their wheels chunk… Blade until it’s not time to Blade anymore and then go to the bar to relax. Thanks to Pablo and Augusto I have a new(ish) appreciation for Blading in NYC. Don’t quit, just hibernate if you get tired. Keep on doing what you love, BLADE!
