HELP A DEAR FRIEND OF OURS, ROB PONTES

A long time friend of the shop, co-worker, father, husband, and all around great guy Rob Pontes needs our help. Rob has been battling ALS for some time now and his medical bills are mounting up. With your help we can help Rob and his family take the financial burden off of their mind. Anything helps! Thanks -EB



From Robs Go Fund Me: 


Rob Pontes is a loving husband and father of two young daughters, Avery and Oliva. On any given day he could be found skateboarding with his friends or putting on events for work. Other days would consist of 7am wakeup calls from the girls ready to run around outside to create beautiful family memories. Now, things are a little different. About two years ago Rob began feeling lethargic and developed other symptoms that doctors initially thought to be Lyme Disease... As these symptoms progressed Lyme Disease was ruled out, and doctors are now leaning towards the early stages of ALS.  A once active guy, Rob now needs a wheel chair to get around on those family outings and the wheels on his skateboard have not rolled in two years. Simple chores around the house like laundry and dishes(yes he used to do them both!)can’t be done due to weakness throughout his entire body. Even kissing the girls goodnight before they go to sleep is physically draining.

Rob continues to work hard but is devastated by the condition that has slowed him down. Its heartbreaking to hear the kids ask why he can’t go outside and play in the yard with them. 
We have committed to doing everything possible to treat Rob's condition, which often means trying new treatmeants. In doing so the Pontes familiy has accrued large medical bills, which have become a difficult financial burden to shoulder. Rob is an amazing guy to so many different people, so with the urging of his close friends we are looking to the community around us for some support. All donations will help support a great person find his way back to a normal life. Thanks for your time and support.


Friends and Family of Rob Pontes

TEAM NEWS: HUMP DAY WITH KEVIN COURT


HUMP DAY MAKES BAD DECISIONS WITH KEVIN COURT

When I first met Kevin his freshman year, I knew that this kid was borderline insane. I got the privilege to live with him for my senior year at Plymouth in a hellhole of a house we named the Dojo. With the bathroom door off its hinges and permanently-sticky beer soaked floors, we watched him make hilariously awful decisions night after night. In the mornings we’d all drive to Loon still a little drunk from the night before and watch Kevin backflip off of everything he could. – Paul Osborne

Home mountain?The giant Nashoba Valley. I lived five minutes down the street growing up so I was there every day possible.
Word. You grew up riding with Zach Normandin, right? How pumped are you for him for having his first part in the new Volcom movie Mr. Plant?Yeah I saw little Zach aka War Beetle slaying the 15-foot tabletop that Nashoba had since he was 11. Pretty sure one time I saw him land a 1440 no grab hahaha. Seeing his name in Mr. Plant makes me so proud to be a good friend of Zach’s. I always knew War Beetle was a prodigy.

So you’re pretty well known as the Gravedigger, care to tell us how you got your nickname?
It was my freshman year and I’m pretty sure I wasn’t even in the room but Dave Steigerwald, Chase Chicoine and Nate Powers were watching a monster truck jam on T.V. and they said, “I wonder if this is what goes on in Kevin’s head?” Then they’re like, “yeah he’s kind of like Gravedigger when he loses a wheel and just keeps going.” So that’s how that started.
P: Cole "Taco" Martin
P: Cole “Taco” Martin
Word. Well living at The Dojo with you was definitely interesting to say the least. Do you have any good stories that you can remember from that?There are so many good stories, I don’t know.
Why don’t you tell us the story of D7?No haha

Come on
No comment on that one
All right then. Can you give us some initials of girls you’ve violated at Plymouth?LB AR HC and umm… I forget the other girl’s last name hahaha
P: Paul Osborne
P: Paul Osborne
What’s the most interesting thing you’ve ever done with a slice of cheese?Put it on my dick and had a girl suck it off.
So you have a face half-made of metal, how did that happen?So it’s my sophomore year on Cinco de Mayo and I got fucking wrecked. I smashed my face off of the tailgate of a truck, then I smashed it off of the edge of an oven, and then after that I kind of showed the cops my cock and my buddy Dave Agan didn’t really like that so he decided to punch me in the face while he was tripping on acid. So it was a whole fucking mess.

So there’s a bunch of reasons why your face is metal that all happened in one day.I think it all happened in probably 4 hours haha
P: Paul Osborne
P: Paul Osborne
Were you stoked or bummed out when Skylar made the Kevin Court Experience a hidden feature in Holy Smokes?I don’t know if I was stoked or bummed out. I definitely wasn’t bummed out. I was just like, “holy shit, this is fucked.”
Yeah, seeing your face hammered on the big screen was hilariousYeah that was insane.
What goes through your head before you send boardslide backflips off of rails in contests?The last thing I remember is nothing.
P: Cole "Taco" Martin
P: Cole “Taco” Martin
We were all egging you to throw a double at Last Call a few years ago. You almost had it first try but 2nd try you got murked off. Are you ever going to redeem yourself and let Gravedigger have his name on the double flip list?
One day I will land it.
Have you ever gotten the boot from a mountain for being too drunk?Yep. Loon Mountain.

I still have the Snapchats from that.
Yeah, that day was sick. hahaha
P: Paul Osborne

I was working the airbag when Chase and Chloe come down and say, “Kevin’s hammered right now whipping his dick around. Don’t let him hit the airbag” hahaHahahaha yeah. I think I peed off the side of the hip that day. Which I didn’t think was a big deal but it was right next to the gondola so that was a bad idea.
Yeah I heard they weren’t too happy about that.Nah, ski patrol was trying to catch me but they couldn’t get me.

So what’s up with your RAW sponsorship?
I like pranks a lot. I got pranked pretty good. I think it was Cole Atencio. He got me real good.
P: Cole "Taco" Martin
P: Cole “Taco” Martin
We saw you walk at graduation last year, are you trying to finish this year?Yep. I got this semester and then next semester I’m going part-time, trying to get a job, work part time and I’ll be done in May.
What are your plans for the winter?Go hard mother fucker
Hahaha your plans for after college?I think myself, Chase Chicoine, Marc Oliveri, and any other close friends that want to join are going to move to Seattle, hopefully get a job and snowboard as much as possible.
P: Cole "Taco" Martin
P: Cole “Taco” Martin
Any advice for the incoming freshmen at PSU?No regrets. No parents. No rules.
Do you care if I make your Kevin in the CafĂ© video public again for this interview?If you really want to. I don’t give a fuck.
Any shout outs or thank yous?I want to thank all my friends definitely. You (Paul), Chase, Marc, Ryan, Dalton, Muff, Christian, Nate Powers, Medvitz, Melia, Meatball, Steigerwald, everyone in the Plymouth State Snowboard Club, Luke Giacopelli, my family. I’m sorry if I missed anyone.
