PETE GRANNIS

These photo were taken at Cellblock 308 AKA my apartment. The Cellblock is the place where a lot of skateboarders have resided on the weekend for many of years now. Whether the good homies who didn't make it back to their house at the end of the night, or those visiting from out of town, this place has seen a lot of partying and sleepovers. Its kind of nice having a place like this, a place where everyone can just wake up next to their friends, rub the crust off their tired eyes and get straight to shredding. The photos below are just some of the great times we have had in Cellblock 308.

Me and my group of friends try to get out of the dry desert of Pheonix and into the forests of Flagstaff at least twice a year. Its so refreshing to go out to the forest and find natural ways to entertain ourselves (well sometimes, haha). We talked about bringing a generator TV and super smash N64 as a joke before we went on this particular camping trip. It was such a stupid/funny idea that last minute, we made it happen. The car that I was in kept this a secret until we got to the camp site and met with our fellow camping buddies, when then revealed what was in our trunk and everybody went nuts with excitement. We hooked up everything and probably played an hour of Smash until we called it quits and went on with our regular camping shenanigans. Nevertheless, Smash in the woods gooooes.

Aaron Goure is one of my good friends and one my most favorite skateboarders. He's the type of guy to always put our group in awe with his fearless shenanigans; he's open to our bad ideas and willing to give them his all. I am straying from the point of the photos, but just wanted to add that. In order to get this boardslide he had to prop open the door to a very classy office complex, his roll up was in the complex so it was a little nerving, whenever a skateboarder has to skate inside a building the secruity factor goes up a bit, I think people get a little bit more angry once you decide to skate in their office complex for one reason or another. this boardslide came really easily for Aaron and he did it a few more times just for the hell of it. The other dark photo (sorry I am an evloved ape when it comes to setting my camera) is also another photo of Aaron. We had heard of this Biker Park that was lit 24 hours a day and decided to go check it out. It was such a great park and a great night, just a group of skateboarders enjoying over sized launch ramps and quarters.
