Jun 5, 2006 lighterkid

thats pretty sweet. ledges like that are hard

Jun 5, 2006 AnthoFlex

no they're not

Jun 5, 2006 Mart

Shut your face Antho, this kid has only just started Soaping so it's hard to him

Jun 5, 2006 AnthoFlex

yo Mart, seriously, cut the shit out, i dunno wtf ur deal is but i'm trying to be cool wit you so just stop.....really....i aint that kinda person who likes to argue....especially this being a soap site and all, we like the last soapers on eathe, we shoudl be cool

Jun 5, 2006 Mart

'we like the last soapers on eathe, we shoudl be cool' - exactly, so don't rag on this kid, who you know has only just started Soaping, because he thinks something is hard

Jun 5, 2006 AnthoFlex

aight man sorry....but dunt get me wrong, i think lighterkid is gonna be great....i dunno why, i just got the feeling you knoe? But yea.....about that last Soapers thing, i really meant that...i know what its like to have "brothers" in your sport....especially me in sk8boarding...my friends are the best...i wouldnt trade them for anyone else....just like Soapers....we all kool...we unique u know?

Aug 27, 2006 AnthoFlex

OMG.....it looks as though Derek has another joint below his knee....eww ahahahaa

Sep 26, 2006 shdook

Sick pic!

Sep 26, 2006 shdook

I would love to grind that!

Sep 26, 2006 SonicSoaper

I agree with lighterkid, I suck at backsides. Did he wax that ledge because if I try to grind stuff like that, I stop short and bust my face.

Oct 8, 2006 matrix8967

awesome pic, i dont see the double knee thing? oh well, anyway, i tried to grind backwards...my waist down had it...but my waist up didnt move and fell on my ass...but the rail was a ladder laying on the ground, so i feel like...2 inches...my friend tries soaps and fell on his back on the rail...it was funny, aside from the 10 sec. i thought he would be paralized the rest of his life...that was scary...


Oct 9, 2006 SonicSoaper

Upon closer inspection, yes. Derek did infact wax that ledge, giving it a nice wet look along the edge.

Oct 25, 2006 snikas

Rock Hard Dude!!!

Dec 10, 2006 AnthoFlex

I think thats the same ledge Cullen Wurzer backslided, looks like sum @$$hole ripped the sticker off

Dec 10, 2006 matrix8967

yeah, cuz i think this was taken after cullen wurzer vid...

Dec 11, 2006 SonicSoaper

Cullen sure did shred in that vid.

Dec 15, 2006 AnthoFlex

He loves dem Backside Farfs!

Dec 16, 2006 SonicSoaper

I sure do love them A-Sides.

Jan 12, 2007 snikas

those are nice shoes

Mar 20, 2007 matrix8967

I used to ask myself "why the hell is there a random ledge there?" after seeing it in these pics and the cullen werzer vid...then I realized "it's there for the SOLE purpose of soaping...duh..."


Mar 21, 2007 SonicSoaper

I love how it sounds when you Soap a ledge. It's like "chhhhoooooooooooook!"

Mar 22, 2007 AnthoFlex

This ledge looks like its been waxed so many times, it might not destroy your plates as much

Mar 22, 2007 SonicSoaper

Wish there were as many of those around here. The closest thing that comes to a super-waxed ledge is the back of the CVS.

Mar 22, 2007 AnthoFlex

You EOB should really step up to rails...

Don't say there arent any rails around....thats what i thought, but look what i found...Soaptopia, 3 blocks away

When you take the time to look around, u can find the sickest shit...

if you guys stay on ledges, you'll never have rail balance....ur always gonna be shifting to that ones side

Mar 23, 2007 sam

Ive always wondered, what is that black sphere on the end with the soap sticker for?

Mar 23, 2007 AnthoFlex

Most likely a lighting system or sumthing

This image still isn't fixed

Jul 6, 2007 RamenRadio

I never knew alexei tajzler wore THE


Jul 6, 2007 RamenRadio

ohhhhhh XD, I'm sorry I meant to say that:

Aaron Taraboletti never wore the A-Sides.

That's weird, I'm pretty sure neither person had the A-Sides. :P

Sep 13, 2007 RamenRadio

Mar 31, 2008 moojuiceman

Mar 31, 2008 mets603412

Dec 18, 2008 Altman

Backsides are awesome to look at and to do. This pic is the perfect example.

May 20, 2013 Relate2Videos

A pair of these would have been amazing. This grind was a good one tho

Nov 15, 2013 mcgrinder2011

I'm not sure if this question was answered here, but HOW did Derek get A-Sides ing the first place? I thought those were unreleased.

Nov 23, 2014 grug250

Nov 28, 2014 mcgrinder2011

Nov 30, 2014 grug250

Dec 4, 2014 mcgrinder2011

Should be up tomorrow or Friday! I just need to stitch the soaping clips and if I don't be lazy like last week it'll be up tomorrow.

Dec 4, 2014 grug250

Dec 8, 2014 mcgrinder2011
