A Night with P-Rod
There's that flickering of what appears to be changing white balance on each frame of this switch back smith. Thrasher photographer Joe Hammeke broke it down for me. This and my other flickering sequences at night in the Park were shot at 1/500th of a second shutter speed. That's fast enough where the entire spectrum of the ceiling lights is not captured in the same way on each frame. He suggested slowing the shutter speed which would allow each frame to capture the full spectrum of the flickering lights. It worked. Check the following sequences and you can see the flicker is gone at 1/200th of a second.

Seen Daniel Espinosa's Lakai welcome video? Jereme did. It must be nice to see a trick then be able to just go out and learn it - back smith to bluntslide.

In Nate Linford's footage he sent me to get into Damn Am, he did a heelflip indy so I almost cancelled him. He ended up doing pretty good in Friday's Qualifiers. This is a back smith on the rail

Rotterdam Grand Prix of Skateboarding 2009
Somehow Lutzka got directly associated with this type of hat, therefore Phil Zwijsen from Belgium is referred to as the Euro Lutzka. I bet K-Swiss is much more accepted here than it is in the US and A

Damn Am Minneapolis 2009
CJ Dixon skates a lot of the All Ages Contests here at SPoT and has now graduated up to skating Damn Am. He squeaked into the cut by getting 30th in the Qualifiers and then made it all the way to 18th in the Semi-Finals. It's tough to get that high in the Semi-Finals. You can have a perfect run and still be down that far. Good job, CJ. See you at the next one
