Andy’s friend Mycah Williams manned up big time and dropped into the Encinitas Civic center bank. It’s about the gnarliest skate spot in town. There’s a a lot of pros who want no part of this thing, and you have to keep in mind that Mycah is only 16. Even though my knees don’t let me skate anymore the sport is still near and dear to me and I get a kick out shooting it every time.

I came across some old scans from my skate days. These are all from 2003. The above shot of Jeff Budro was the cover of Concrete Wave Magazine. Below, we’ve got John Torchia ripping a corner air at a long gone Vista pool.
And last but not least, the legendary Kevin Staab spinning an original trick he named the half-cow. The long since revamped Encinitas YMCA.
Making pictures of my friends skateboarding was one of the first things that attracted me to photography. I don’t get the chance to shoot it much these days, except the rare occasion when Andy lets me tag along with him and his crew. If anyone out there wants to shoot some skate photos, hit me up!

I usually don’t do this, but this video is too cool to miss. This fancy art museum in Germany invited Professional skateboarder Mark Gonzales to do a show. This is what The Gonz did. Found it over on Spike Jones’s blog We Love You So.

Andy is my 13 year old son. Here, he’s kick-flipping a 3 block at the elementary school we both attended. Along with inheriting my love of skateboarding, he’s also a budding skate filmer. I’m quite proud of him and love him very much.
