John Bristol, Walter Pieringer, Adam Streiby and I ride the vert ramp at the old Gorky park skatepark in Moscow between rain showers back in 2001!
Cameron Birdwell Podcast
Early in Summer 2019 I sat down with Cameron Birdwell over at Oscar Gonzales’ house and we talked about how he grew up in the Norcal scene, riding with Ryan Nyquist and Chad Kagy when they all were young, his years riding for 2-Hip, his crazy tour life that covers 2-Hip tours and Warped tour, and his battles with addiction and how he brought himself back. I was so excited to hear what Cam had to say and I hope you all enjoy it!

Leigh is definitely one of the best all around riders to have ever put it down. Im a sucker for parts that mix street & vert. I wish we could have gotten to see a full vert part from Leigh but until someone digs up some old tapes this part from DK’s Damn Kids will have to do!
I had missed out on the Southern California Book release for the “Birth of the Freestyle Movement” and I was not about to miss another epic gathering for the Norcal release. After replacing the U-joint on my van the night before I was off and running towards Berkley, CA.
After a quick power nap outside of Lake Shasta I still made the starting time of 12 noon at Rich Avela’s coffee shop Highwire.
