Skate[Slate]’s Jon Huey in Vancouver with Flatspot

Jon Huey is one of the talented people I get to work with at Skate[Slate]. Jon came up to Vancouver to stay with me and work on the magazine and spent some time at Flatspot Longboards and out in the community while he was here.

I’m personally stoked on this shot he got of me at the Parkade Session we joined in on. Check the article Jon posted on Skate[Slate].com for more photos and his story. Parkades happen weekly in Vancouver and are a staple of our regular community fun here in town. If you want to find out more, it’s open and inviting, but you gotta come find out how to join in person at Flatspot and we can connect you.

Kamloops, British Colombia opened the World’s First Longboard Park and I had the pleasure of being there thanks to¬†Switchback Longboards and the #SwitchbackAnimals. I swapped runs with Aidan Lynds to cover the filming and he put together the edit.

Portraits from the 2014 Toronto Board Meeting

I have known about the Toronto Board Meeting for years, but always had a reason to be somewhere else. No excuses this year, I packed my bags with Aidan Lynds and we headed out to Toronto.

One of the iconic things in my mind is the black & white photos of Board Meeting over the years, most notably to me are the ones from Jonathan Nuss. Nuss and the Skate Invaders are a large part of my image of the Ontario scene as whole.

I snapped some images for Switchback Longboards while I was there and kept it to Monochrome because it felt right (Album here). Continue reading
