In April Thrasher contacted us wanting to stop by with some pros to skate and play some music... They gave me a list of professional skateboarders who'd be coming with the bands... We thought it over.... Thrasher made promises of cleaning up all the garbage etc... So with a few weeks of preperations we put the blue ramp together, Built a roof over the stage, installed a skatable rail off the stage, and fixed the driveway.. Thousands of dollars spent... "All so that Thrasher could come visit"... Thinking back and looking over my notes I realized they never said anything about Antihero being with them... "Only David Gonzales and Frank Grewer even skated"..... The whole weekend was all about skateboarding and progression untill those Thrasher Pirates showed up.. It was like a black cloud rolled in... "I think they must've been all drunk and drugged up like rockstars".... Just 100% pure disrespect... "T-Mo even spray painted in the bowl"... 5 years of no Graffiti and it took only 1 tour van of proffesional skateboarders... No thanks Thrasher!!! "Your a wolf in sheeps clothing"... Your never coming back here.. You diddnt even take your garbage, and for your own crimes here... I've closed the gates to nearly everyone. Those who know are welcome... We have our own scene Thrasher, we don't care about your scene.

On Friday night March 9th 2012 Rob Dixon paddled out in kayak on Indian Hills Lake near Cuba, Missouri... His kayak, paddle, and shoes were found the next morning, and his body was found floating 2 weeks later.... Rob was a builder, an artist, mason, a traveler, a skateboarder, and a contributing builder of spots such as Skatopia, St.Louis City Museum, Cement Land, Kings Highway, Hermann's Hole, also many other skateparks, ramps, D.I.Y. pools around the country... Robert was always down to help out his friends and family with a smile under his beard.... His travels, work & generosity are inspirational to all skaters who knew him. Even with a broken foot he would do concrete work all day and then tape it up and skate the next day..(shown here in the layback grind) All the best to Rob's family his brother Ed, and his many many friends.... His memory will live on forever in the concrete he finished and the blocks he set here in Hermann, and everywhere else he visited in his time here on earth...... A true friend he was... Thank you Rob..

"Some members of "Minus Ramps" and "General Sherman´s Floats" have been on a road trip to exchange new building technics in future-oriented skateparks. In the first two weeks of february this year, areas like Los Angeles, San Diego and El Centro (USA) have been spotted for great sessions and the search for the ultimate ramp. On their way a lot of spots needed to be cleaned and fixed before the crew could get to work. During shreds Matt and Soup taped some motion pictures. For your pleasure here is a edit which shows what it takes to find the perfect ramp. Skateboarders are: Chad "JR" Leblanc, William "Soup" Campbell, Chris Cope, Landjunge "JP" Kraus, Old man Andy, Brendan Klein, Jamison Peil, Matt Grabowski, Sam Hitz, the shotcrete crew, Downless, General Sherman, Twister was there, Chris Cope and Chris Cope again.....those guys went down and got up back again. All modern building technologies base on the old 50´s swimming pools construct. A true inspiration, right?" Einen Artikel über diesen Roadtrip in Bildern findet man auf der CONFUSION MAG Seite.
