Nor Cal has some of the best weather people say. It never rains in California people say. You can surf to school in California people say. I am here to let you know that that is complete BULLSHIT. It’s been HELLA cold the past two weeks (50°F), and raining cats and ducks nonstop for an eternity (2 days). While most normal people react to the rain by driving like morons and crashing into to people, long time super employee Tim ‘Bahoomaha’ Kahana took the time to take advantage of this rain and copped some freshies. He was so stoked to buds them that he decided to skate the shipping table in the warehouse. I managed to snap this foto of his soul grind using the latest Mark III 5D camera (iPhone) and was quite pleased with how it turned out.
I have tried to contact the fine folks at Time Magazine hoping to get this Pulitzer worthy foto on the cover of their February issue but they have not responded to my four postcards that I have sent them (e-mail is too impersonal).
I asked Tim what the tick tock was on his new skates, to which he saiiiiiid,
I used to skate Razors for a little over a decade. People constantly ask me why I switched. Razors makes great skates but I wanted something more stylish and since Valo is a hot seller I thought I’d give them a try. I got the TV.3 Camos because it was to pay homage to 6 years I spent with the Marine Corps. Anyone that knows me and my setups knows that I want to do something unique so I added a white toe cap with Ground Control F1XS frames. Unlike the popular Featherlites I wanted a wider groove and more solid frame…. These frames are simply amazing and you should give them a try! Aside from the smooth grinds I topped it off with Amall champion Swiss bearings, Valos 58mm wheels and Valo Brand antis.
You can get Tim’s Setup here at Amall piece meal, or you can get it via the custom page right here.
Tim’s setup includes the Valo TV.3 Camo skates,
and lastly Valo’s very own Anti Rocker Wheels, which allow you to grind smoothly over all obstacles without sacrificing any sort of maneuverability,
If you do decide to get some sort of setup, feel free to write something snarky on the order comments. Tim takes great pride in his setups as well as fulfilling the wildest dreams of all our customers, especially when it comes to custom warehouse art on your box (he will not draw batkid so stop asking).
Don’t forget to get your free Swiss bearings (along with other goodies)
