A little extra help from time to time is never a bad thing. After hauling sheets of wood up and down stairs and eventually tossing them onto a roof top, then setting up for the photo I was feeling a bit burnt knowing it all has to come right back down. Luckily these locals came in to save the day and my back once we decided to call it for the day. I always get stoked meeting the next generation of shredders, and these kids were no exception. Funny how this wooden toy can bridge the gaps between the many generations of weirdos’ who take joy in it’s existence . 


A much more notable skate photog , once compared the act of gardening to the act of skateboarding. More specifically to shooting skateboarding. I always thought his words were rad and for some reason they stuck in my brain. For me skateboarding is much like fishing. Sometimes you get skunked and other days you bring in the haul and mount that sucker on your wall.  Through good days and bad, best just keep moving forward looking for that trophy.
