Matching Outfits

So, I guess when the guy you're shooting almost wears a whole outfit (including trucks and deck) that matches the thing he's skating, you're almost gauranteed a great photo and a nice banger. Not sure what I'm talking about? Check the shots of the front noses on the yellow rail!

Front nose!

Peep the matching gear!

mellow day...with Spencer..yeah right

It was beautiful today. So beautiful that I couldn't resist skateboarding. So then Spencer messages me and wants to go shoot photos, I figure we're going to get some large hammers.....but he ends up wanting to take Myspace skateboard photos. Wicked. So we got a few good shots here and there, but he mostly just wanted to goof around with a broken deck later on. His friend Ben came too, he got some nice ledge shots, a good sequence too. The quote of the night tonight is "As soon as someone sees a kid with a skateboard, they immediately think that we killed their parents or something."-Spencer on getting kicked out of the Indy Banks.

swell day.

Get Gnarly!

Monday was the last day of the long weekend, and knowing skate rats, we had to make something of it. So we went to Waterloo. First we hit up the Parkade. We got a few wallride shots in and after we got to race down, it was intense. Next we went to Laurier, and skated a bench and their small handrail. It's pretty good there, but always a bust. Next we went to an undisclosed area to find this huge gap Josh was so sure about, and low and behold, we found it. It was fucking huge. He took some really heavy falls, and in the end, really did a number on his ankle. I can't release anymore information about this gap until he does it. Get Gnarly!

wallride! mind the hand plant..

Donkey Porn

So today was Easter Sunday, and I decided to head to the park in the evening for a little skate before it got dark. Matt(1) ended up being there with Matt(2) and we decided to head a sweet wallride spot. Matt(3) also came along. As soon as we got there, some old crank tried to chew us out and make us leave, but really, he was only cranky cause he couldn't hear the sounds of his donkey porn over our "ruckus". So we got some sick flicks there, and decided to head downtown. We met up with Palmer and his friend and skated some manual pad, ledges and a bank. We got some really nice shots and footage through the night. Awesome time guys! Check some of the pics below!

Let's go to Milton

So yesterday Richie, Jamie, Josh, Steve and I were crusing around and looking for some rails to shoot. The first spot was a total bust and we couldn't find anything else, so we decided to head to the Milton park to show them what's up.

some of the flicks...
