A few months ago, legendary skate photographer Mike Blabac was forced to evacuate his house due to nearby San Diego fires.

Every piece of film he ever shot was in there. “After my kids and the animals were safe, I quickly grabbed all the film I could. After sorting through a box of images I realized there are so many unpublished images I’ve shot over the years that are now amazing to look back at,” Mike said looking back on that day. “I’m glad I’ve kept everything even if they didn’t make it into the pages of a magazine at the time”

Here are scans of those unpublished gems.
