St. Patricks day is today if you don’t know already. St Patrick’s Day custom of “drowning the shamrock” was very popular, especially in Ireland. At the end of the celebrations, a shamrock is put into the bottom of a cup, which is then filled with whiskey, beer, or cider. It is then drunk as a toast to St Patrick, Ireland, or those present. The shamrock would either be swallowed with the drink or taken out and tossed over the shoulder for good luck. Do something green, celebrate, and enjoy your weekend. Scroll down and enjoy another great week has come to the beginning of the weekend. Bangkok with Tim Knoll, Florida Swamp fest is heating up, Coplon and crew in pools, Puerto Rico, Shanghai with Tsutomu and Gshock, and a wedding crew. Holla…and fart…-Chad D

Dave Freimuth #tbw to a month ago in Quebradillas when Rooftop kindly set down his bike a minute and picked up his second favorite tool (GoPro) and shot an elusive shot of me getting locked in at my favorite skatepark in the world.
Who thinks we need to throw a Baco-A-Go-Go here?!!
Tsutomu Shanghai event Day1
Chad DeGroot “Here is a pic I got in my garage recently. Installed all new lighting, working on texture on the ceiling, and then full paint job. But also going to put a metal quarter in for speed and backwards tricks…been working on my garage clocking some hours. And next will be an AC unit for summers to have a dry and less humid lil spot to jib around.”
