My good buddy Erik Olsen performing a sweet backside flip.
I can’t really say growing up with this dude was that sick. The only really awesome thing he would do was give me all his used boards. He rode for World, so I got all of the most banging hand me downs. He showed up to my 13th birthday party and got drunk as fuck with this dude Travis Sayer and this polish slut Caroline Kowalshik. He barfed on my bathroom floor and pissed my dad off so bad he yelled at this drunk, miniature asian. One time we were walking home from school and I was listening to my headphones, looking down, and walked into a pole. He told me with a straight face that he was ashamed to know me. Then he dogged us all out to become the first dude from SJ to think he was from SF. None of this negates the fact that he ripped so hard in the 5th grade that high school kids hated his guts. He was the first person in my age bracket to get sponsored, and end up becoming famous for skating. Notably later in life, this midget thought he was tough and hit Darren Harper in the head with his board. Gangster moves!
Halba is out on the East Coast visiting his East Coast “peeps” and rekindling his BFF status with Shine Box (formerly known as Darkstar Dave aka Hot Tub). He’s most likely getting kissed on the cheek every few minutes and courted with fondness. Needless to say he did another pole jam/wallie type move before he ran off into his sidekick’s loving embrace. You probably are thinking to yourself, “this is by far the best wally type pole jams I have ever seen of The Screaming Lord Halba” (and lord knows you have seen plenty). Well, the reason this one appears to be the best one yet is because it was shot by your’s truly. And we all know how talent seems to shed off my head like dandruff from overabundance. Now if I only had a BFF of my very own….any bros out there looking to take our friendship to the next level?
The Kids got a mean Japan air!
