switch209 #wcw #wce to this beautiful soldier .

switch209 She is a beautiful woman, inside and out, and all without having to try. I still ask myself every day how I got so lucky. "Girl you're my angel, you're my darling angel..." 2w

switch209 My WCW goes to this beautiful woman. I've known her for 9 years now, and I remember the first time she told me she wanted to be able to travel and help make an impact by being apart of something bigger than herself and now after all this time she will be able to accomplish that dream when she is deployed very soon. She's always been so kind to others, been able to put what she does aside in order to be able to attend to someone who needs help, and through any challenge she faces, she always smiles and is happy, and over the years she has still remained to stay the same girl I had met back when I tutored her for her math class in high school, and that's one of the many things I love about you. This will be my first time saying goodbye for now and to have you not just still be around, but you'll be leaving the country to return in a year, but I'll be waiting for you to come back and tell me all of your stories and share what new experiences you had learning about a culture much different than here at home. Ive never stopped supporting your dreams, and I can't wait to see where they will take you in this coming year and where they will take you in the future. I love you Michaela 2w

switch209 It's all a mental game, and this one was the most challenging one in a very long time, but I am glad it's over. Unfortunately IG only has room for 15 seconds or id post the land with these attempts. Broke my 5th board trying this, skated it until I couldnt(broke it completely through on the full attempt clip), and nearly friendly fired against Devin on a bad landing, but after 2hrs, the roll away made working graveyard for 11hrs before hand worth it. Thank you for sticking this out with me Devin! : @m30wster 4w
  •   connor.sb That's one of @prod84 child hood spots 4w
  •   greglutzka Dope 4w

  •   m30wster You're a boss dude! 4w
  •   connor.sb @switch209 I watched it in a vid on YouTube. 4w
  •   switch209 @connor.sb what video? I want to see because I know prod has only been to this town once, and that was last year while filming for the brainfarm video 4w
  •   connor.sb Nvm. I'm thinking of Albertsons loading dock 4w
  •   switch209 @m30wster you are too! Just wait until we hit up SF or head to the mountains, it's gonna get sick really quick! 4w

switch209 5 broken boards, 10 different spot visits, 3 sprained ankles, over 12 hours for all visits, and after not being able to skate for two weeks due to work, the nosemanual bs 540 shov out finally went down. The land is on my SNAPCHAT: Switch209 if you want to see it within the next 24hrs. Glad to be back on my board again. 1mon
  •   xxmoufxx Are you working on a street part or some shit? It'd be cool to see one from you 1mon
  •   heroinsyringe Good for you man, you've been trying that trick for too long 1mon
  •   switch209 @xxmoufxx yeah, I am working on a follow up part to Reality Check, and I'll be putting out a throw away part soon. If you click the link in my bio on here you can see parts I've done before, everything is on my YouTube channel. 4w
  •   switch209 @heroinsyringe thanks homie, it was a very long, difficult process to finally get the trick, but it's finally over. I actually landed it at least 5 times before I got the one I wanted, 3 of the lands were done when my board was broken 4w
  •   brinweoth This is true dedication 2w

switch209 This was the most challenging, but fun clip, to film for the Week 2 Skate Camp video. I told the kids the idea I had for it and then the five shown immediately jumped on the idea to make it happen. It took a handful of tries, but to really see how stoked they were at the end was worth it. Jack, @Mr._pimmy, @dylan.vergez @trav_dawg11 and Kyle did great and I am stoked they came to camp this year, keep me posted on the new stuff you guys learn! 1mon

switch209 And that's a wrap for Skate Camp this year through the Riverbank Recreation Department! The kids from this week were the most determined, confident, and fearless group I've ever been able to teach, and I'm very proud of the confidence they gained in such a short time. @trav_dawg11 got this roll in on the flatwall right as the day ended, putting the best end possible to the best year of skate camp so far. Thank you to all the kids who attended, it wouldn't be anything without you guys. 2mon

switch209 Wallride fun after skate camp this afternoon. : @occynegrete 2mon
  •   _conreezy Ahh damn 2mon
  •   andeeroohoo I just rolled my ankle here the other day. 2mon
  •   switch209 @andeeroohoo sorry man, it almost got my right ankle when I was learning to backside wallride. My board got chewed at this wall 2mon
  •   andeeroohoo Yeah that wall is chunky as hell. Super fun spot though. 2mon
  •   switch209 @andeeroohoo yes it is. I have been thinking about a tail drop into the bank. The guys I went with said it hasn't been done yet 2mon
  •   andeeroohoo Damn, that would be so sick. I know of this gnarly bank in oakdale that I want to see somebody drop in off the chainlink into. 2mon
  •   switch209 @andeeroohoo a chain link to bank? Where in Oakdale? I live in oakdale 2mon
  •   andeeroohoo Its near the country club. I can't think of the name of the street, but I know you turn on Atlas from the 108, and then take your first left. 2mon

switch209 @trav_dawg11 and @mr._pimmy have been progressing at nearly the same rate and trying similar new tricks, and today they both decided to charge the spine and try to air over it. They spent most of the day trying this and they never gave up on it, and it was great to see them not competing for landing it first, but instead hyping each other up to land it. Adam landed it twice, this one being after his mom came to pick her up to show her what he learned, and tomorrow will be another day to see what else they will try, and to see Travis land it as well. Great job both of you guys! 2mon

switch209 @dylan.vergez was new to intermediate week for skate camp so I had no idea what he wanted to learn, but after seeing @trav_dawg11 handling dropping into everything, he didn't hesitate to join him with dropping in on the extension, and he had never dropped in to a ramp before. The first few times trying it by himself he took a few slams, but he continued trying and now can drop in every time, and even used this to join in trying to go over the spine with @mr._pimmy and Travis. True showmanship that you can overcome any obstacle in front of you. 2mon

switch209 This is one of the most amazing roll aways I've ever filmed. Ethan had been wanting to roll off this ledge after seeing the ones who landed this during the first week, and after many attempts and a handful of slams, he decided to try it again...no speed wabbles, no stepping off at the ramp, no hands at all, and balancing off the nose of the board...he took it straight to the bottom and I still can't believe he got it like he did! This year's kids are, by far, the most determined I've ever taught and there progression day after day shows that. 2mon

switch209 Nine visits(six different spots total), three broken boards, three sprained ankles, and four broken bearings so far for this one trick...I have not rolled away on camera yet(twice off camera), but this is the closest I've come to it, and I know the next visit, I will roll away so I can finally be done with it. There have been very few tricks that I've tried that made me feel like I can't learn anything else until I land what has been challenging me, and this is one of them. I would love to knock this trick out asap, but whenever I have the chance to go back, it'll be finally over with and I'll be completely done with this spot as well. : @yeahbucky209 2mon
  •   joerisitano U gotta get that 2mon
  •   switch209 @joerisitano I will, I just don't know when I'll be able to go again, very few people in my area skate anymore and it's rare that someone wants to film 2mon
  •   joerisitano @switch209 you live in Cali there's gotta be more people and even so do it for yourself man 2mon
  •   switch209 @joerisitano not in the part of Cali I live in, most either have quit or moved to SF an hour and a half away, or to LA and that's almost 6 hours away. I've landed it twice now, no matter what I need it on film, that's the only way this will count for me because it would be my third 540 shov it out variation I've done 2mon
  •   joerisitano @switch209 dam I feel you that sucks man ! But keep it up and eventually you'll find someone to film u 2mon
  •   heroinsyringe Robbed so hard bro :\ 2mon

switch209 This year's skate camps have been about breaking new ground for both the kids and for things that haven't been done before. All I said was, "last week we had a few go down the wall, but so far nobody has tried to go all the way up and escape it", and immediately 4 of the kids charged the wall and Adam got up it with ease. Adam and Kyle were trying to do back to back doubles down the 4 but the wall caught him a few times, but he now can Ollie down it almost every try. Last clip was first try warm up line after watching @brianpeacockcrap new full clip Friday and trying to do the stall 360 out he did in a line. Can't wait for tomorrow! 2mon
