The GKM Award at Yokohama

Couldn't quite believe it but the Mooneyes guys have asked me to present a GKM Award at their show in Yokohama.

It's strange – and incredibly fulfilling – as I sit here in my little office looking out at the snow, to think that other people (especially of the calibre of the Mooneyes Co) actually see GKM as a proper magazine, with some relevance to the talented individuals able to build bikes I can only dream about.

Anyway, as it's last minute and I can't think of anything better, I will purloin another vintage trophy from my collection to give away. That makes it a personal gift.

GKM is a world class publication which speaks to its readership! You're up there with the best!

No need to humble ...it's deserved!

I have given away framed prints and personalized trophies for my Big ramp skate events over the last 5 years.
There is nothing as fulfilling as giving back to something you are passionate about.
Cool, more power too ya!
