We made a trip out to see the progress on the new skatepark in spring or actually Greenspoint. Things seem to be coming along well. Not too much to see but I thought it would be nice to share a few photos I took. I look forward to riding the concrete waves.
The next two Fridays the TruthRiders will be out and about in Houston. This coming Friday the 8th we will doing a demo at the PABN gym. The 15th we will be at Bethany Church next to Lamar high school. They will be showing the movie Hardflip and we will demo that trick along with other flat ground tricks. We will be talking about one of the local actors in the movie and how he got the part. Come join us we’d love to meet you. Ask for your free copy of the Skate Bible we have 50 to give away.
If you skate and live near Houston Texas you don’t want to miss this. Today January 7th 2013 at 10 am the city will break ground on the 2nd largest skate park in the world. Click the link above for details on where.
Remember God loves you and He is always willing to listen to your prayers. Peace be with you and I hope to see you at the ground breaking.
Finally the park has been approved to be built in greenspoint. Now this is how you help the community.
It’s been awhile summer vacation and a summer cold have kept me busy or just out. A couple of months ago a few of us paid a visit to the city council to ask why the greens point skate park and park without limits has not been built. We have heard that things are now moving along and only time will tell. I suggest we all call or write the council and kindly ask for them to push (pun intended) this project forward. The tax money is in the bank and the hold up seems to be the funds to have the park supervised…really! Well I’ll leave it at that and ask everyone to pray for our government to use the funds we have given in a way that will improve the community.
Thanks first to our Father God Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. It is through His blood we are saved. His grace and love are enough for you and me. Thanks to Shannon’s Street waves for sponsoring the event and the community of Magnolia for organizing the Love bug festival and allowing us to hold the competition.

Below is an article on the spring skateboard park that is about to be scratched for a new Greenspoint mall if we don’t act NOW. Do we really need a new mall?
Come to the next City council meeting and speak of how skating has impacted your life. WhenTuesday, june 19, 2 pm. contact city scheduler if you would like to speak , 832-393-1100. If you do plan to speak remember be kind courteous and present facts. Below is an article about the park and some stats about skating written by a local skater and friend. Use this info and your Personel story about skating to help the city council understand why building the skatepark is money better spent than spending money to refurbish the Greenspoint mall…
