I had no idea how greatly seeing Michael J. Fox ride his skateboard in the 1985 film Back To The Future would affect the direction of my life, but looking back, I find it fascinating how much this four-wheeled block of wood has helped shape the person I've become. I've been a skateboarder for well over half my life. It's a fascinating culture and lifestyle--one that continues to evolve yet always sticks to its roots. Over the years, I started taking notice of this and set out to document this amazing phenomenon of skate culture as an insider. Rather than focusing on action photos, I usually take more of a behind the scenes/lifestyle/portrait approach, capturing those quick moments that embrace the essence of skateboarding. There's a range of photographs here--some old, some new--but overall a collection of many great moments and fun people that I've met along the way. Good times for sure. Thank you Michael Burnett, Thrasher readers and yes, thank you skateboarding!

740TH1213PC1.jpgIn This Issue
Be careful opening the July 2015 issue because this Vans Propeller-themed beast might just cut your damn fingers off. Featuring interviews with Zorilla, AVE, Rowley, Caples, Pedro, Dollin, Dill, Chima, Trujillo, K-Walks and more, you're probably going to need a crowbar to pry the damn smile off your face when you're done reading this one. In addition, the Visualtraveling crew rides the edge of Arabia, Cab talks classic covers, Neckface celebrates a decade-long party with the mag and Daan Van Der Linden gets the Lunatic Fringe treatment (you're gonna wanna remember that name). There's not going to be any space left on your bedroom walls after you rip the good photos out of this issue. Tell mom to buy more thumbtacks.
Add this one to your collection.
