Sweet sixteens and ice cream in Tampa.

Randoms from a day of street skating in Chicago.

Luan Oliveira with both a regular and switch shifty flip in Chicago. Chris Cole, P-Rod and a bunch of other pros joined the session, too. It was Street League weekend.

Just drove straight from Atlanta to Austin in one day, then went out for a beer upon arrival.

A few from a quick weekend trip to Baltimore to check out a skate park and contest they throw, Maryland Am. http://theboardr.com/post/Maryland_Am_Skateboarding_Contest_Charm_City

A night back in time with Big Brother magazine. Torey Pudwill on Grind King, The Muska, and Billy Marks’s crotch in ads.

Man, Brittany and I are having a damn good time with this boy Alvis. He’s 5 months now. Taking these guys to work with me tomorrow, 7am flight to Vegas for the Zappos skate thing. You got this, Alvie.

Timelapse of Flaming Lips in Downtown Tampa for Gasparilla Music Fest

I’m on the balcony with the computer dorking out while making time lapses of the Flaming Lips show in Curtis Hixon Park in Downtown Tampa. Pretty sick that we have good shows like this down here now. Please stop with the shitty cover bands shows.

The scene right now at gasparillamusic that just kicked off. Heard the Flaming Lips do a sound check last night, too. Will be watching the entire thing with the boy strapped to my chest from here while Brit enjoys it down there.

Multitasking with the boy strapped in this morning.

Everyone’s on manual labor while I’m on digital labor. We’re trying to get the basics set up for online retail doors opening up on February 1. I have a few more photos dumped from my camera here for you. Thanks for following along with our adventure to build something in skateboarding from the ground up.

Yesterday, Alvis Levi Meronek was born in Tampa, Florida. It’s been an amazing 24 hours. He’s healthy and chilling tight so far.

Are skateboard selfies just as bad as hot dog legs and duck lips? Maybe. I finally put down the iPhone 4 and got a 5. Just discovered slo-mo, ha. Sundown at Turtle Ditch with a couple meron grabs…

Brittany’s idea for maternity photos was us swapping out clothes. I of course had to change them all to animated gifs. Check the full size photos/gifs here: http://meronek.com/maternity/

I endured some nice stares from random bystanders as we quickly changed in our car for most of these. Meronek V2.0 comes on December 16th. I like this one with the full Tampa sign in there:
