this is a series of photos shot in between shooting the skate photos in 43 003
– with the static iv crew, subway skating with the tengu crew, and various other
ventures while skating around new york city.

these skateboarders embody a pure spirit of skateboarding, with the talents and following that influence the growing independent, authentic, and underground scene within the larger realm of skateboarding today.
