Take it AZ…like take it E-Z? Get it? Maybe we should have called it AZduzit..oh well maybe next time. Here’s what Jason, Bahlman, Drew, Tate and Myself got into on our first couple days out here in this desert metropolis…

Day one started off unfortunately with this disappointing sight…a pool we were anticipating going to ride being filled in by big business. Guess we were just a day late and a dollar short….

Oh well, no matter, on to the next one. Drew took us to another awesome steep tranny guy nestled somewhere in the mountains. Our homies Josh Betley and Greg Moliterno were also along for the ride.

Jason was right in his element here. This pool was insanely tight quarters and he seemed to have no problem dropping in and carving around like it was in his own backyard.

Pool guru of Arizona….maybe he should write a book.

I’m gonna go out on a limb here and say that this shit was pretty dangerous. Despite their riding styles Bongman & Tate apparently aren’t too afraid of heights.

Pool crew. The view from up here was amazing. From here we spent the rest of our day foraging thru the Phoenix wilderness looking for spots…

Wouldn’t you like to know what’s in the magic book. We capped off the day with some Scottsdale gems and on into the night with some generator magic from this guy.

Knowing full well it was gonna rain cats and dogs most of the morning, Day two got off to a very slow start. After the requisite Dunkin Donuts visit we found ourselves at this little DIY spot. Enns definitely can’t resist some tight transition so I snapped this little iPhone guy for him.

Rain rain go away. Bahlman got a raw deal…literally. As we were filming his moves his hand grinded against some super rough concrete cheese grading his palm…and to make matters worse it started sprinkling just as he was getting close to pulling it. Luckily for us Arizona is inherently dehydrated, so we were able to post up under this carport for 10 minutes till the rail passed over. Bongman hopped back on the horse and executed perfectly.

Greg and his buddy. I forget this dude’s name but apparently he was asking Greg for a smoke when he remembered they had met before. Greg had some crazy photos of this guy in an alley dressed up all nice in a suit like a pimp. It’s a small world in the streets of Phoenix apparently. From here on out the rain ended up coming back pretty hard and that was pretty much it for the day. So, In the spirit of Jeffery Lebowski we said… “fuck it dude, lets go bowlin'”
