Skate Rock(s)

Early shot of Matt Pailes (pre-rasta-affliction) at a Think demo on Bainbridge Island circa '95. Backside 180 over ramp-to-ramp, it's a make. I think this is probably my first skate photo ever taken, on my old trusty Pentax Asahi. (RIP) I need to find the negative so I can get an un-scrapbooked version up. I always liked this foto.

This is back in the day where you would actually skate with guys at a demo, not the sidelined spectacles they do nowadays. I made a frontside 180 over that thing, happy at the time, only to be chagrined at having shinsplints for the month following. Adrenaline is bliss.
