4th of July.
Attached is a board my late son - Pete Harwood Jr. - did the graphics on. I shaped the board in early 2002 a few months after 9/11 and he had at it with Posca pens. The "flush" on the top rail was his name/logo for his board graphics and t-shirt design work.
He was 16 at the time.
Happy 4 th - Be Safe
Celebrate your Freedom.
Glad you have that as a memory Pete.
I paddled out on a longboard tonight to watch the Ocean City fireworks. I had the best seat in the house. The fireworks are fired from a barge and I was between the barge and the 100,000 people on the beach sweltering. In the distance I could watch all the fireworks displays from Atlantic City to Cape May. Good stuff.
Serriously though, no offence to patriotic Americans, I like my country too but in the
last 10 years U.S government policies have lost you more freedoms than any
other time in modern history (these policies are mostly beyond normal citizens
control and would have come into place no matter which stooge was standing in
front of the people on (Rupid Murdoch’s/News Corporation) television)..
Other countries such as Australia have followed US policies and we aren't
too far behind on loosing many of our freedoms as well. To summaries you've
Freedom of speech
Freedom of association
The right to access government information/government transparencies
Freedom from unreasonable searches and seizures
The right to due process and freedom from being held without charge
Right to legal representation
Right to a speedy and public trial
Freedom from cruel and unusual punishments
Right to equal protection

Independence?? Your country is out of control!!
First, Pete, sad to hear that. Hang in.
Second, Marsh is right....... and don't get me going on that. Patriot act my @ss....
Third, for the day, I went and did the Amurrican thang - yes, I blew stuff up. Seemed appropriate.
Marsh, you are crossing a line. Stick to what you know about. You have a right to your opinion, no matter how off base it is. Don't start some jingoistic rant without facts. To call the U.S. "out of control" is going too far. GO PISS UP A ROPE!!!!!
Marsh: you and your ignorant bullshit slam on the US of A can GO FUCK YOURSELF.
