Jacob and Ridley…. a children’s book

August 25th, 2021

Never in my wildest of dreams could I imagine illustrating or even writing

a children’s book.

But what starts out as doodles and friendship at a mundane job,

can transpire into full on project.

And that is what happened this past year at my day job.

I am going to provide links to purchase, hear the story of how the book

started and a commercial we filmed on location of Bethlehem Area Public Library.

I get asked what is your message in the book.


You are not alone. It’s ok to make new friends.

May the cool times never end!!!

Summerline is here…

June 16th, 2020

I feel terrible that I neglect this site.

Being a essential worker can take a toll .

We are still here. Just tend to focus on the lost soul instagram page.

This years series, conversational shreds, was done by me.

Layout. Cut, Rip, Paste.

I feel boards lose interest sometimes but I still get stoked

on a graphic that speaks more than just a brand logo.

I like a board that asks questions, or provides statements that

can have you just ask questions.

What was he thinking about this? Why did he add this? What is this phrase about?

That stuff to me is what we lack in this world in this day in age.

A fucking conversation.

Talk to each other. Stop staring at a phone screen. Take out the headphones.

The boards are in our shopping cart.

Thanks for taking the time to support us.

It’s another chapter of our lives which we will look back on.

Some will look in disbelief.

Some will be filled with joy.

Hopefully , you will feel inspired.

Inspired to make those memories with your friends.

Inspired to get out of the cage and look for adventure.

Trespass. Make Noise. Destroy.

The biggest of THANK YOU’S goes out to the editor.


Without him, it’s just footage on mini dv tapes.

Thank You for creating what a video of friends looks like.

Interested in the limited copy, it’s here.

This Is Why… Ray Gurz

It’s very hard to write about yourself.

Especially after putting out parts over the years.

But here is some insight.

I put as much as I physically can into a part

while working another job and playing in my band tile.

One of the main focuses I have for every part,

is to get this done locally.

You can go travel to other states and countries

but I can get more done in my local area for what I am into.

I never thought being in my 40’s ,that I be filming as much as I am.

But , if you continue to evolve as a person, and just do the cool shit

you like, skateboarding is still one of the best feelings ever.

Whether you respect this old guy or not, I don’t care.

It’s not one thing I honestly worry about.

It is the search for spots that keeps me going.

It’s the possibilities of the trick selection that keeps me going.

It’s the friends that keeps me going.

It’s the love of riding a skateboard since the mid 80’s.

I never thought in the last 3 years I have the last part.
