This is one of my flatland buddies Jean-William Prevost AKA "Dubs". I had no idea he could do this stuff, as well as being one of the top flatlanders in the world! Enjoy these vids, and remember, Go where your heart takes you.

I am very sorry to report that Dickie Sanders (Talented flatlander, and loved by many) has passed away from suicide. I leave you all with this memorial video clip of Dickie, made by my good friend Mark Dandridge. I also want to add that if any of my friends are considering something like suicide, please, KNOW that you ARE loved! And, please come to me if you need anything at all. Love and respect, Joe

I am always talking about the importance of an education to all of the kids at the shop. This is my friend Dr. Arthur Thomason. He has been a pro flatlander for close to twenty years and still got a PHD in Physics, and is currently employed by NASA. Enjoy this video of Art riding, and try to imagine the work ethic it took to accomplish the things he has. Much respect Art, you are an excellent example of success!
This little man is named Quentin, and is seen here with his 77 year old Grandmother. I actually got to witness this little guy learn to ride without training wheels yesterday. It reminded me a lot of my Dad teaching me how to ride, too cool! This is why I love my new shop and the family I've been able to create there. Thanks to all my local Homies for all the support. You guys are the best! L8r, Joe

Team Unknown Skater, Big Joe Robinson was featured in todays Herald-Bulletin. The skate comp was killer with lots of surprise winners, the top three in each class were as follows: Novice 1st place Austin Rees, 2nd place Luke, Third went to one of youngest competitors Gabriel " don't call me little" Martinez. In the expert class 1st place went to Jason Jones, 2nd place went to Joel Vaughn( who Ruled! even though he has a cast on his left arm ) Third place was Team Unknown's very own Austin Moore. Great Job Homie! On to the Masters, Things got shook-up a little. First place went to Team Unknown Skater Quentin " I do it all " Roundtree. Way to represent "Q"! 2nd place went to a man I have a lot of respect for, Noodles, who not only Skates for Team Unknown, but works full time and is a full time Father to a beautiful newborn girl, Way to go Brother! Family represent! Third place went to another local favorite, Stephen. I would like to mention that if I didn't print your last name it's because you didn't put it on the sign-up sheet, and I don't want to make any mistakes in that regard. Thanks to everyone who made this contest a complete success! We'll have another one in the future. L8r, Joe
Also special thanks to Aaron Piper of the Herald-Bulletin for helping me display our VERY talented local youth.
