I was holding on to these two photos for the purpose of using them in the first print issue of No Comply Skateboard Mag. In January of 2013, the mag will be 2 years old. I really wanted to release the first print issue of the mag in January in conjunction with the 2 Year Anniversary. But, over the last few weeks I have been doing a lot of thinking. I have unfortunately, come to the conclusion at this point, that I am not going to be doing a print issue of the mag. At least, not for now. This doesn’t mean that it is totally out of the equation. It just means that, based on where I have placed my priorities in life at the present moment, it just doesn’t make the list. I have decided to focus my efforts (After Family, Friends, and Work) on continuing to evolve the website, shooting more photos, learning how to shoot video, and on growing my new apparel and accessories brand No Comply.
That being said, I am stoked more and more every day on how the mag has grown and on all of the rad people that I have met (and reconnected with) over the past two years as a result. It’s also really cool to hear all of the positive feedback from people that I meet. That means a lot! Thank you. Anyway, I hope everyone continues to enjoy the mag. Cheers! -Nicks

There is a reason that I am posting this photo. I’ll explain the reason tomorrow. – Nicks
I heard about this crazy ship hull d.i.y. spot recently, so on my way back to St. Pete from P(A)yne Skatepark in Sarasota last week, I stopped to scope it out. The hull is actually two huge separate fiberglass pieces, side-by-side. Someone has placed old metal signs, thin plywood, cardboard, and whatever else they could find over the big sketchy seam in the middle to make it at least somewhat ride-able. The walls are tight and steep, there is almost no flat bottom, almost no deck, and just to make it that much sketchier, there is a huge seam that you can see just below the lip in the photo.
So, naturally, the first person that came to my mind when thinking of people I know that would be down for this crazy spot, was my good buddy Nick Murphy. I told Nick about the spot, and a few days later Nick came over from Orlando and we set out on a mission. I’ll just put it this way…mission accomplished, and then some. I couldn’t wait to post one of the photos from the day, so below is the backside boneless that he stomped. Check out the first issue of the print mag in January for the rest of the photos from the day. Cheers. -Nicks

Friday at P(a)yne Skatepark in Sarasota the weather was perfect for the Punk Rock Mini Ramp Jam. Losin’ It, Truth Inside, Slow Burn, Brainbust, Suburban Warfare, and Green Street Elite kept the tunes hard and loud all evening long, while a super-charged jam was going down on the mini ramp. Big shout-outs to Compound Boardshop, V-Town Surf & Skate 2, and Chris & Dan @ P(a)yne Skatepark for the giveaways and for making it all happen. Until next time…
Check out the photos here.
Quick 5 is a brand new, and hopefully regular, feature on the mag. Pretty much just like it sounds, Quick 5 is a quick, 5-trick video clip. I’m hoping that this will also force me to improve my filming and editing skills! Anyway, getting us started is Westside Skateshop family member, and one of Florida’s finest…TJ Sparks. – Nicks
