Top 5 P-Stone moments

  1. He drove our van for Skate Rock Australia and drank about one beer an hour while on the road. Australia is really strict about DUI’s and when questioned about his beer consumption, he answered casually “I’m a big guy so I can drink a little bit more than the average person without going over the legal limit.”
  2. One day we were skating the miniramp in my backyard and my Mom comes out and asks Preston if he would like a Martini, Preston says “Wow I’ve never been offered a Martini during a miniramp session before! Can’t say no to that!”
  3. Skate Rock trip to Australia, Preston wore the same clothes for 2 weeks. Then on the last day he breaks out fresh pants & a shirt, I said “Damn Preston looking fresh!” He replied “Thanks, it’s my fly home kit.”
  4. Our friend Rune from Copenhagen asked Peabody to ask Preston if he could burn him a CD with all the songs from his video “BEERS BOWLS & BARNEYS” on it. Preston burned the CD and gave to Peabody to give to Rune. Rune was so stoked that Preston got him the CD that when Preston went out to Copenhagen for the contest, Rune had made a bike with a keg of beer built into the trailer. He painted “Preston’s Place” on the trailer and hired a couple Danish kids to ride the bike around & follow Preston wherever he went. Needless to say it was a very drunk week.
