#TBT to the year 2000. @jeremy_wray was coming off a bad knee injury and this was the first day he attempted to push it with a gnarly impact. @atibaphoto Sumner and I crept up and hid behind the wall so Jeremy could get into position. You rarely get more than 2 tries at this spot so we anticipated a little cat & mouse. But Jeremy landed it 4th try and we were out. This would be the scariest trick to try down a triple set. Let alone land on it 2nd try. @wraybros #adio #secondhandsmokepartstillonrepeat
#TBT to I believe 1997 when @edselego was mangling the streets of Tampa, as well as his body. The Greyhound Dog Track was one of the worst spots in Tampa but it was also my favorite. I spent so much time melting my brains skating the shadeless black tar flatground, nobody ever wanted to skate there with me other than Ed. He somehow managed to film about 5 amazing clips there over a period of a few years that are still some of the gnarliest things done in Tampa. This being one of them. I think @ryangee_photo was shooting here and the sequence ended up in @transworldskate This Ollie is forking gnarly. Ed was the only one who ever stepped up to it. Tampa's finest.
15 yrs ago, I went to Tokyo on an Alphanumeric trip. I was working as the filmer and photographer. As of our last night there we had only shot 1 photo. So @mark_appleyard @foreaga and I skated and shot around Tokyo straight through til our flight the next morning and somehow finished an entire @transworldskate article. Mark got this shocker despite them turning the lights out on us.
#TBT If you were skater in 1990, you definitely searched your local record store for this tape over and over. I remember bringing it to the DJ booth at Astro Skate in Florida one night demanding that he put it on. He asked me what it was and I said "don't worry, everyone in here is gonna be SO stoked". I was 13.
12 yrs ago while filming with @dannyrenaud Steve Brandi, Andy Honen and @igeiland we stumbled across @bworrest and @jackcurtin shooting photos with @mehringsbearings and no filmer. So, we stopped and captured these 2 clips. I always hated filming on the gold rail. So sketchy, landing into sidewalk traffic, always getting hit by the skaters board and cat & mousing with security. But these two tricks were bananas. #tbt
