I went over to Mash’s to chill and have a beer. When I got there I got a sneak peak at two of his new customs, and OH DAMN are they sick. This one has an alien abduction on it, how bad ass is that? and that’s only on one side of the damn thing. Mash is really doing some amazing stuff with kendamas and the stuff he is making is just getting better and better. Full pics should be up soon on the Kengarden.
The Sac Battle was really amazing, and I don’t think it could have gone any better than it did. Everyone came out and shredded and had a great time. Big ups to Dave Mateo for throwing this massive event and building this giant, AMAZING, scene out in Sac. Also a big congrats to Jake for winning the whole damn thing. Charlie and I stayed at Mateo’s all weekend so we could skate a little bit. The hospitality was insane because not only did we get to go skate amazing spots, we also go a tour of Sac as well. So big thanks again to Dave and his brother Don. I love Sacramento and can’t wait to get back now because of you guys. Above are a few pics and you can find the rest of them here. See you all at the next one…
Ken Usa Fam. Thanks Jero, Jake and Colin.
Sweets and I did a little bit of barter action and I ended up scoring these two amazing kendamas. In front is the Coral which is just to epic for words and in the back is the Seafoam. Full review coming soon, once I mess around with these bad boys. But from what I have heard and what I can tell from my initial reaction. These are some quality damas. Pick one up here.
First ever East Bay battle!!! I’m stoked, I heard they have a fire pit and chickens, you can’t go wrong with chickens running around. Greg’s impression of Jake in this is just too damn good. Also Mateo is gonna be in town from Georgia, so expect to see some epic best trick ish like always. Hope to see you all there, check out all the details here...
I found this very odd looking kendama poster somewhere deep in the depths of the internets. The guy looks like he is having a bit of trouble, he should probably bend his knees more.
Some really crazy kendamas in here. I like all the really big ass ones in the bottom left corner. Also that really weird red one on the bottom with the weird elongated cups is sick too. I’m sure Van Rasta has 2 of them already.
This must be at some toy convention, that I would love to attend. So much sick shit in this photo, check out all the sports themed kens laying down at the top, and the metal ken in that baller ass case. Also there are so many other random wooden toys I’ve never even seen before. I hope it’s like this at the juggling convention that we got invited too.
It’s really crazy to think this giant truck pulls up to a kendama factory with all this wood and it pulls away with a giant truck load full of kendamas. Do you think the people that work in the factory actually like kendamas? After making them all day everyday could you still like them? I wonder if any of them are really good players, or if its the same as any episode of Unwrapped where you know the person making Frosted Flakes for 20 years wants to kill themselves.
