On our second day in Israel our friends Avi and Noam took us a half an hour ride away to the city of Hashdog. Ashdod. We’ve all been pretty amazed to find out how mellow Israel is and how friendly the people are. Not sure exactly why that should surprise anyone, when basically it’s what everyone will always say after visiting here. Suppose you just have to see it for yourself for it to really sink in. Hardly anywhere seems to be a bust and people are mostly just stoked to see skating. Even the few winos on the street are polite. There’s a strange we’re-all-in-this-together good vibe about it all. So Hasdod then. Wainwright’s day, skated all day, shot three things, filmed a couple more, decorated the trash in front of the spot in true Arte Povera style. Bet he’ll be feeling it today in dem legs.

Nassim had a brush with the gods of bad ankles, but seems to have escaped their wrath this time round.

After a night of storm and thunder, the sun seems to be out again and it’s time to start over. Little appearance for the television today, apparently, and then hit the streets again. Good times.

Manhead gets creative to show you how he really feels inside.
