So here we are with part two. I started shooting some more film as the weather warmed up.
There was lots of skateboarding. We revamped an old DIY barrier spot and skated it a whole lot.
Everybody was killin' it. Wells Shaw warmed up for a back tail on the barrier with a little kickflip into a small bank.
May hit and so did more beautiful weather. A bunch of dudes and I went to Asheville to see gnarly skateboarding happen at the Thrashville Mountain Masters Skate Comp.
We came home and continued to skate a lot. Wells learns new moves in the deep end of the CB skate park bowl. Backside crailslide.
Stagnation breeds creativity and there is nothing more stagnant than the skate spots in Wilmington. So my friends got tricks on treacherous terrain in the Ogden area.
Skateboner Magazine became an actual thing in May. This was the cover shot.
Beach season officially began. Gary Bolos expressed a deep devotion to getting rid of his farmers tan.
My sister graduated high school.
Wells Shaw became an amateur skateboarder for Creation Skateboards. His left ankle was messed up so he could only skate switch, which was a real bummer.
Coley Martin celebrated a birthday with a backside crailslide on the aforementioned barrier spot.
This shot of Wells tweaking out a small nollie heel on extremely safe terrain made it to the Creation Skateboards catalog poster.
I shot my first wedding.
I shot a lot more film than anything else for the entire rest of the summer. Work was pretty busy, so photography got put on the back burner. Here's a bunch of film stuff in reverse chronological order.
Part Three of Three coming Monday the 30th!
