“In August my good friend Bernard turns 40. With a few month of’s out there, it’s time to showcase a true legend. With Colin Evans’ blessing, expect gems spanning over 2 decades. Stand by for daily updates” – Glenn Wignall

There was a Boom skateboards demo in my hometown of Palmerston North one day so I called in sick to my supermarket job to go watch them skate. A young Bernie was there and making this new hobby of mine look way too easy. Fast forward a few years and we are skating and filming in Wellington on a daily basis. Every few months we would do a little road trip back to Palmy to skate The Square, pretend we were at Love Park and then hit up a bunch of spots around town. Everyone looked a the rail at this spot, not the ledge. Mostly for good reason, it was rough as f**k. Bernie backtailed it and @davidread shot it masterfully enough to cut out a stair and make it look higher (check my story or @gwignall the ad)! Happy 40th @b_foo! Thanks for all the good times over the last 17+ years. Let's go film a trick! #monthoffoo

B I R T H D A Y B O Y S 40 & 2 (minus a day) There's a lot Jett can learn from his old man (that saying rings true now he's into the next decade)… @b_foo B is nothing short of a legend, not only in the skateboarding realm, but in life itself. Genuine, kind, hardworking, patient as a mo-fo, determined and loyal are just a few of his beautiful qualities. It's a pleasure & an honour to do life with him. This shot, perfectly captured by uncle Shauny @shauntunny is him in his element. Enjoying time on the board with his buddy. He's a man of few words but I know this #monthoffoo means the world to him. As he's put it. "It gives him the warm & fuzzies". So a massive shout out to @gwignall & the skateboarding crew for absolutely making his 40th one to remember
