Burnout: Death Travels by Taxi
Bowman, ready for battle.
The locals, killing it as usual.
Pool Carlin handles a crooks.
Tony's handplant lead to some spontaneous board guitar.
Here we go ...
Fresh off Skate Folk, J Harms sweeps it up.
If this don't warm you up, nothing will.
Always something to trip on in the new mag.
Later, on the streets.
Rudimentary wall walking.
Jimmy is the finest Zinger skater I have ever seen.
And now the work portion.
Ah yes, the Neen gap.
To put this in perspective, Garrett is seven feet tall.
It was a slaughter.
And then, after all the pussy Americans were laid to waste, a stranger arrived by taxi cab.
Immediately, he went to work.
He was like some unstoppable skating machine!
And then five tries later, he was carving to victory.
We were tripping.
After that shaming, it was time for some goodtimes boardin'.
What did we do before pivots to fakie were invented? Oh yeah, handplants.
This reminds me so much of a photo I'd see in the mag in the 80s.
Back before everything got so dangerous.
