Three for…Thursday

Digging into the archive and pulling out three photo’s for the post. Here we go. First up Threaders ollie into a steep concrete descent. It was a windy day and Lewis had a fight on with the wind. Shouting at the sky and pushing himself as he always does to make the trick. He’s class that lad.

Next up Lloyd McLeggon with a switch flip. It was pretty nasty shooting this trick because the only light around was faint, it was cold and damp and the people who are staying in the building kept peeping through the curtains, probably thinking I’m a freak sneaking around at night with a camera. Lloyd being the trooper he is made it look easy, regardless of the flash blindness.

Last up from the archive is Chris Barrett’s switch ollie to carve on something that looks hardly skate-able. That’s Barrett for you, a street trooper with mad skills and crazy ideas. He’s a real street skater with pure Northern style. Keep your eyes peeled for future Barrett bangers.
