Check out this short video by Jay documenting Cody’s last few weeks in Texas before his move.
Check out this edit Jay made of leftover clips from Cody’s last days edit. The full edit drops Thursday.
Before I ever got the chance to move to Austin, everyone I had known from there had already moved away.
So by the time I had decided to uproot from my current situation and give the town a go, I no longer had the huge catalog of friends that I used to. The new scene that I was experiencing was larger than it had ever been, but it didn’t have the essence of a “community” like what I’d enjoyed coming from a smaller town.
That was about to change.
Over time, with some effort, a handful of the older heads had everyone’s numbers and were making sessions, bbq’s and camp outs a regular thing. People from all around TX were taking notice of the amazing scene we were creating and Austin was getting new recruits every month.
During this time, a few of us, myself included, experienced some hardships and were taken in by our friends until we could get back on our feet.
(Sidenote: Austin has the tastiest waves a couch surfer has ever seen!)
With the amount of selflessness going around, it didn’t take long for all of my friends to feel like family.
THIS IS NOT A ROLLERBLADING EDIT. While this edit contains some blading, it’s just a recap of Foogie’s week in Austin for SXSW. Either way, check it out because it has some good vibes to it.
Some footage compiled from Foogie’s recent trip to Austin.
New edit from Ian Copp & Michael Kraft featuring himself, Cody, Mick, Heath, TK, Andrew, and others.
