coolest day ever

ggso last saturday was the day i went blind 2 years ago, november 23 2011. for this day my girl rented out the whole skatepark the edge its indoor because its winter and there is too much snow to skate. she also got me a brand new element board with thunder light trucks and spitfire wheels and reds bearings! this was all a surprise to me untill we got there. it was epic i got higher than the quarter pipe on the vert wall and landed a full gap on a funbox that had a ramp on either side and a flat part in the middle i also rode the mini pipe and another box. 
i have another video being made with alot more stuff than the last one it will be huge i am doing things i couldnt do when i could see like front and backside boardslides and the pyramid and bowls and boxes and quarter pipes.
i just finished hanging with my bro goody the rapper from selkirk, i have lots of respect for him.   ffj

so i had an interview with shaw tv and it went great they shot me skating alot and they had some really good questions like she asked me if i knew how unique my personality and attitude is and i was like uh nope its just me:) they got me skating with my cane down the sidewalk and i told them that my buddy usuallygets interviewed with me and they were like can you call him so he answered some questions and they also shot us walking down the sidewalk just chatting about whatever.
while skating for them i took a nasty fall while mid air i was jumping the bank of the pyramid and lostfooting and tried to get back on the board and tripped myself with my board and i landed a bit away from the ramp on my hip my shoulder my elbow and my knee and ankle but only walked away with some road rash and kept skating first thing i did was look at the camera man and he said in a thank god voice "we didnt get that dont worry " i was like oh my god are you serious tha twould have been epic if you got that lol then i did a handstand for the camera then the interviewer was like i cant watch then she did watch and was like can do that again i need a picture lol im like yeah sure i guess:P
