ATTACK OF DANGER BAY 14: Striker’s Memories

We wanted to do an interview with Bricin for the opening of Danger Bay 14 registration, but seeing as it happens on April 1st, we didn’t think anyone would believe use! So, not only is the Attack of Danger Bay now open for registration, we also got Bricin Lyons to bust out the old memory bank. Here’s what he came up with.  Of course he sent it in his trademark style, ALL CAPS!

“RACE MY SKATEBOARD BRICIN?!!? You’re kidding, right…..why would I do that?”

These were the words that come from my mouth when Bricin approached me in 2001 in English Bay [downtown Vancouver]. For better or for worse, it was a moment that changed my life. I like to think for the better! I know I’m not alone on this. Many of my rider buddies have mentioned they felt this way over the years and that is why they keep going back. For some this 4 day getaway is what they need to cross one off the bucket list, and for others it’s tradition mixed with addiction. – Dan

FUN FACT

When Strike approached me I wasn’t actually riding a skateboard.  I was riding an On Shore Board.  For those of you that don’t know, please google it.   Talk about accepting everyone regardless of what board you were on.  ‘Just ride’ was the Coast Longboarding mantra!  – OSB Dan

    we all love you Brian. I have the record for "most ambulances" and it was only 2x in 10 years. And one, i didnt even end up going to the hospital. The other, well, my ulnar nerve (funny bone) has been fucked up ever since.
