When I came across this kickstarter page, the first thing I thought was, sweet, another kook invention. Then I put my thinking cap on and said wait, maybe it is possible. Who knows. They always say you can't reinvent the wheel. Well these dudes did, and it kinda makes sense. What are your thoughts?

We took a trip down to Mammoth with the crew from Solitaire Skateboards for a solid weekend of skating, camping, swimming and to generally get the hell out of Dodge for the weekend. A solid crew of rippers, an awesome skatepark and epic camping make the trip go off without a hitch, minus some grief from Johnny Law over some disputable trespassing into a river and hot springs. All in all it was worth it, here's some teaser B shots, look for a full article in the upcoming digital magazine. Thanks to the guys as Solitaire Skateboards for having us, we have to keep the trips like this rolling!

Heckler has done it again. The generator was humming, and the bearings were buzzing. Or maybe it was the skateboarders and spectators that were buzzing. Either way, some heavy stuff went down. So many tricks were landed it made it hard to decide what to put in the edit without making it 5 hours long. Great job to all the skaters for absolutely killing it. We will let people know next time the lights hit the park! Thanks everyone!
