Proof of my age. Here’s to 2018. Ken Nagahara photo. South Dakota. Thanks for the support over the years. Let’s keep rolling for the ones that aren’t with us anymore. Every year just goes by faster and faster. #4qconditioning

Over the last couple months every Sunday evening the neighbor kid knocks on the door to ask to go for a ride on the Motorcyle. They started out slow and around the block, yesterday we jumped on the freeway and weaved down to the bay. “You can see so far and you can really smell all the different smells in the air”, he explained to me. His obsession for skateboards, motorcycles, and to explore parallel mine, but hearing about them through his 10 year old eyes is truly a reminder of how amazing the world can be. #4qconditioning

Happy Dec 25th 2017 Downtown Oakland.
I am a passenger
And I ride and I ride
I ride through the city's backside
I see the stars come out of the sky
Yeah, they're bright in a hollow sky
You know it looks so good tonight. Fun with the family. Thanks Toby.

I heard you rumble through the clouds the other night, your laugh roared like thunder, and as you throttled behind the glow of the moon my head filled with a dozen memories of you. Tom I can’t believe it’s been a year. Hope you’re blowing minds out there. Love you. This photo @_garcia took says it all. #4qconditioning

There’s a few different versions, I didn’t want to hear myself talk so I posted this one. If you’re in Japan next week for the @mooneyesjp show please come check out Ken Nagahara’s photo show in Tokyo brought to you by Whites Boots and @roller_magazine . I’ll be there come say hi. Thanks to everyone that helped with this. #4qconditioning

Lil Sara gassing my old shovel, after her bike broke down and I naively offered to let her ride mine. Almost Immediately she flew by us on the freeway and I saw the bike go faster than it ever had. I couldn’t even catch her. This must have been about 07. We were headed to a show, where she proceeded to almost drive the bike into two show cars and then a tree. Her little arm had become so sore from pulling in clutch, she couldn’t do it anymore. When she finally stopped I was laughing so hard. It was elegant and terrifying. Saw this photo today and thought of those good times. #4qconditioning

A young Mr. Frank Gerwer and myself. 2004. Filming for Tent City. Skated with Frank yesterday, and was reminded of how much of a skate rat he still is, and probably the funniest person in skateboarding. How he does not have his own talk show already is beyond me. Good seeing you Frank. #frontsidechüüto #4qconditioning

Put my little sweet leaf onto a boat headed for Japan🇯🇵. Whites Boots and I are sending it to the mooneyes show to keep us company at their booth. I tore it down last week and re-did the Silverleaf on the frame, to fix a few places I wasn’t happy with. This bike is is in no way affiliated with the invited bikes for the show. Congratulations to all those in that group, it’s a complete honor to get that invite and throttle into that building. If you’re at the @mooneyesjp 2017 show, please come by the @whitesboots_japan and @roller_magazine spot and say hello. #4qconditioning

Helped design these marbled @realskateboards decks with help from @andy_pitts as well as a @spitfirewheels “lifer wheel”. Extremely happy with the outcome. Any involvement with real and spitfire is always fun. I’ve seen both these companies grow from the ground up over the last 20+ years and it’s insane with all their success how they’ve remained true to their original ethos. Skateboarding has gotten so fucking crazy, it’s good to see them both still killing it. #spitfirewheels #realskateboards #4qconditioning Thanks you guys. Love you.

Welcome Home 69. Today my van broke down on the way back from south-Calif. 180 miles from home in the middle of nowhere..after a tow and some big help from @_busby_ I ended up at a mechanic 100+ miles from home. So i unloaded my shovel that has been to and from England last few months kicked it to life and blasted home. For whatever reason, and after a pretty screwed up day.... it was one of my favorite rides. Everything was alive. No explanation for it, just some strange harmony. I’m just getting news of all fires up here and down south. Thinking positive thoughts for all those involved. Forgot to thank @scottystopnik for grabbing the bike from the shipper! #4qconditioning

In may of 95 I got a THRASHER cover. A moment you never forget. Though it says "sick switch vert" this is actually a half cab, but most people thought it was an Ollie to fakie. There was an amazing Tom Boyle interview inside, who was a huge inspiration to me.RIP. We had to shoot this cover twice, because Jakes warehouse was a cave and the first shoot was too dark. @thrashermag thank you for this, and thanks for all the years of dedication and inspiration. #4qconditioning

My 69. 7000+ miles after riding round trip to NYC. 2010. With Ken&Chris. From the smiles, rain storms,and staring into the sun.... a lot of wrinkles were added to my face that trip. We didn't really take any extra gear, just what you see here. Which at times seemed like too much. We met people from all walks of life, backgrounds and beliefs. If you ever have the chance, and want to see how big this country really is..... do it. #4qconditioning

Some film shot down @lowerbobs by @kanoazimmerman . Those are some of our friends names that aren't with us anymore under my feet. Set in tile and cement by the amazing @farkus . We lost Phil Shao to a car crash, Curtis Hsiang dropped to his death while skating in front of us from some strange aneurysm, Ruben Orkin to lung cancer.... way too young, and Swenson.... well that was his own choice. I miss them all, there are those things that I still want to share with them. Sometimes I find myself reaching for the phone, when I have a question they would know the answer to, only to get lost on scattered memories. This photo, and that doorway.... are some heavy symbolism. And now only weeks after this photo was shot, Preston Maigetter's name is under there. Hold those that you love close, and fuck all the dumb shit. Life is here and then it's gone. Thank you skateboarding, I am truly blown away by the love, support and the money raised for Preston's wife and children. #PSTONEFOREVER

1997. @jon_miner posted this yesterday.... it really brought back some beautiful memories of skating @jimthiebaud ramp. This footage was myself, Dune, and Mark Gonzales, I either had random t-shirt change halfway through or maybe it's from two different days pieced together. We skated that ramp a lot. And that Flexi piece of plywood, for as sketchy as it was,provided so much fun. I can hear @tommyguerrero shouting and laughing in the background. #4qconditioning #jimsramp

After a very long hiatus from weaving, my mom is back at it. She's stopped working 7 days a week and finally has made some time for one of her old passions. She hand dyed the Boucolé yarn, and then wove it on her loom. She's always been one of my top creative inspirations, never satisfied with her work, always critical of the outcome, and welcomes criticism. Very cool to see her have a chance to work on these again.
