Aaron – Front Nose

June 24th, 2007 4 comments

Here’s another photo from Miami, Aaron doing a front nose down the famous NMB hubbas. This spot was fun, we spent about 4 or 5 hours there, there’s a mini set on the other side (4 stairs) and smooth cement everywhere.. much like every spot we hit in Miami. I want to go back to Miami tomorrow.

Tomas – Back Nose in Miami

June 16th, 2007 5 comments

This is one of my favourite shots from Miami, it was a day where we spent the afternoon skating this pier which used to be the old highway between Miami and South Beach. The wooden benches grinded so well that even I was hitting them. I think this is the only skate photo I have in my blog so far with no flashes used, just straight up telephoto sitting on my board at the other end of the pier. Background props to all the other guys that came to Miami with us, can’t wait to go back.

Chris painted this piece for the boys down in Miami, then proceeded to ollie over it. Albeit he was having a bad day, he still popped it like a champ, normally he’s a good half foot higher.

Here’s a photo from Miami that I’ve been holding on to, I have about 15 or so photos that I’ve sent out to Color Magazine, hoping they might take one. This is Nick, with his busted knee doing a step up to crooks in South Beach Miami.

Miami was one of my first times hanging out with Nick, I witnessed him Hulk Hogan a t-shirt, nearly cry then focus a board when we hid the car keys on him for 20 minutes, and challenge me to a drinking competition at least twice a day. Sweet dude, who finally got a trick on camera with me despite his busted ass knee. It should also be mentioned that Nick is terrified of the ghetto. For now here’s a portrait of Nick, well more like a snapshot with available light, on the pier where we spent the afternoon getting sunburns and skating some sweet benches.
