• Same board!
  • Split level house - just like the one in the 70's shot
  • That a "Makaha?" Good board for downhill runs. Mine's around somewhere. - Gamma Infinity
  • Still beautiful!
    and with so much style :D! - Mina May

Me Then (1978) and Now (2008)

Newer Older

Back in the late 70's I loved skateboarding. This was my first board - wooden with polyurethane wheels and open bearings. Later I got a fiberglass board with wide trucks and Stroker brand wheels that I ordered from Southern California.

I still have that original wooden board though. And it is still very fast.

Hey - I know I look a little mad here - was just trying match the intensity of the shot from the 70's (and not fall on my a$$).

    Absolutely one of the most beautiful photographic moments about skateboarding I've seen this year. And both times you are stunning, as well as his work.

    awesome! this one jumped out at me and made me smile, I longboard a lot. b&w skate photos from the 70s are my favorite.

    And how great it would be to skate by your house and get a smile instead of the typical look of hate I get.

    This is awesome! I saw a gallery of shots where a photographer got people to re-do photos kinda like this. Nicely done! And even awesome that you still kept your board!
