There’s been a lot of talk lately on the web and on Insta about not looking through the viewfinder when taking a skate photo, personally I don’t think it’s the best use of resources, but I choose not to shoot that way. I shot this photo of Tony Hawk at the recent Bones Brigade Hawk Foundation at Vans by laying down and hanging my head below the coping, putting myself in the line of fire. Sorry for my smugness, but that is the proper way. I will run the full frame on FB for the rectangular format.

This looks like it’s gonna end badly but @andieylerma pulls the air over while @palm_bruise crailslides under. Footage is from tonight at #vanscombi by @razyfaouri

The Vans Pool Party is today, memories of the original Combi at Pipeline Skatepark and @christianhosoi still linger 30 years later. Pentax k-1000, Asahi Pentax 16mm Fisheye and Tri-X film. 1984.
