Thanks man. That was the first time I was putting my camera to use although my friend took the picture.  And definitely agree on fakie 540 big flips looking awesome. I only landed a couple of them in my lifetime of skating.  I used to have my 540 flips down a little better, they weren't consistent but did land em every now and then when I tried. Once I realized I had to put my front foot so much lower on the board compared to 360 flips, they started getting the full rotation better but man do you have to get pop for those to fully rotate!  Haven't skated in a while so I know I lost em haha. 


Yeah, the pop has to be there for sure. People freak out when the see the board flipping and spinning like crazy and then I land and roll away. Haha Good times.


For sure! Probably one of the best things about that trick, is majority of skaters don't try em enough to have it in their arsenal, so it definitely is a head turner if you can land em. Talk about steeze! 

 And on a side note, I'm so glad I got into snowboarding 3 seasons ago. Now that it's winter I can actually still look forward to riding one way or another.

sick!  lofty, and good style.

gone out on the cruiser a few times recently... I miss it and want to do it more.  I got my girlfriend a little cruiser last year and we wen out the road and skated for a while the other day.. super fun.  she's stoked on it, and can actually push and ride and turn and all that.. I'm glad we can do that together, otherwise I wouldn't get to do it much haha.

made a flyer for one of our upcoming events with a photo that my friend mark took of one of our shop riders' huge fs nosebone.

This is the deck of Jovontae Turner, a black professional skater.  It was his concept.  Very often art is not meant o be taken seriously and in some way, it should always be striking.  It certainly made its impression on you.  Rocco was always breaking boundaries with WI and I dig that about him.

one of the photos from a short session with max earlier today.  I almost want to say I like shooting skate photos more than snow photos.. it's close.  I need to get a flash kit some time though... the park is so dim that it's hard to get quality images a lot of the time, so it gets grainy.

But not only that, you have him dreaming about a chicken drumstick too.  LOL  But one thing that I've never understood about skateboard decks is that it's gonna get scratched up anyways unlike snowboard decks where the graphic is on the top so does it really even matter what your deck's design is?  LOL

carvers are fun, but not what I'm into since you can't really skate them like normal.  I don't like being that high off the ground either.  I'm basically not into any of the specialty boards like longboards and pre-made "cruisers" which usually means a small longboard from most longboard companies.  the ones I like to ride are more like regular skateboards where you can skate them as such.

a cruiser, at least by my definition, is more or less a wider normal board with risers and longboard wheels, but the board is usually a fun shape.  it's the same thing most filmers use as their filming boards.  krooked zigzagger for example.  same concave, a little wider than normal, nose and tail kick of the same size, but cut in a semi old-school shape.  a lot of companies make stuff like that now so you could really just go to your local shop and see what they have, or just google "skateboard cruiser deck," and you get lots of results from various pro companies.  it seems like most of them have at least one cruiser shape these days, since they are getting popular.  I'm riding a 9" DGK cruiser now, have had a zigzagger, REAL "aces ripper," city godzilla cruiser, a manik cruiser from the noah sinclair boyt series, etc.  it doesn't have to be a shape like that though.. some people just like a regular deck but in a wider size, like 8.5" or so.

for trucks, you want highs with 1/4" risers because of the larger wheels.  for wheels, something in the high 50s or low 60s is pretty perfect if you ask me, and you want them soft.  I like 62mm with a 78A durometer, but that's all preference.  a lot of wheels companies are making these too.. ricta clouds, satori, spitfire, etc.  again, most skateshops would probably have at least a couple cruiser decks/wheels in stock.





and the far left one here.. gnarly graphic, haha

Check out landyachtz cruiser decks. I think landyachtz has the best of every single type of longboard, for cruisers to downhill. The peacmaker is a great cruiser in particular.

depends what you want to do.  three basic things.  if you want to get into the "trick" side of skating, get a regular board.  if you want to cruise streets and just go on flat ground and make turns, longboard.  if you want to cruise streets efficiently but also have the ability to skate it like regular (ollies, etc), get a cruiser (similar to a regular board, but with soft longboard wheels).  cruisers are a nice hybrid between the two.  also best for travel in my opinion, as you cruise like a longboard (fast, smooth), but they are regular-size, thus easier to transport/carry when not actually skating.  I have almost given up all regular skating for cruisers.  I think it's most similar to snowboarding too, in that you cruise anywhere smooth, go fast, make turns, but you can still pop up, over, and down things and do tricks if you want.  super fun.

you could also get two boards, or hell get three if you want.  I mostly skate cruisers, but occasionally I get on a regular board if I feel like going to the park.  pretty rare though.  20 years in, so I'm burnt out on it.

can you recommend some good cruiser boards?  Have you tried the Carver boards?  I have one of them that have the special trucks...super fun.

I used to skate from age 8 - 12.. just to get around a bit faster than walking.. to like school and the shops.. I surf and snowboard.. so thought recently that I would try skateboarding again.

In two weeks I've learn how to pump in a half pipe, ollie, ollie 180, get the spin down on a kickflip.. now I just need to be able to land on it.. think I'm doing pretty well... now I just need to man up and drop in or rock onto coping without being scared of falling :(
Slowly but surely getting there!

I used to skate quite a bit when I was younger, but now I've picked up longboarding. It's much easier and you can typically cruise to where you want to go, as a mode of transport I would have to definitely pick longboarding over skateboarding.

That was so sick! I live in Portland, where does he usually skate at?


Sorry to disappoint, but he doesn't skate, he just is a photographer that currently lives in Portland. He said there is a slight chance he might take his get up to parks this summer to play around with different shots. He DID turn is BMW 3 wagon into a mobile dark room. It is a big ordeal though to set something like this up in the real world. Camera is from 1907 I think, and the lens is even older. There is a good amount of logistics that would come about setting it up in the middle of a park. Might piss off some people, might make some people really stoked. Who knows. But like I said, there is a possibility he does it some where around Portland this year.

He does have a full studio he works out of somewhere near down town, and will shoot pretty much anything you ask for dollars....btw Wink

On the subject of skating helping out for boarding, if Shaun White does it... it can't be all that bad...
