Burnout: Dream Catcher
I almost forgot about these awesome photos I shot at the Hooter's Casino Hotel.
We missed the Prince tribute show, but Mike still kept it sexy.
They had a store that sold nothing but cage fighting gear. Death Clutch?
Can't believed we stayed here.
Back in Albuquerque ....
Kickflip redemption for Bill.
Ed breaks it down for the layman.
'Oh I get it, he's that kid that bounces all those balls.'
This celebration circle was for the big, big maneuver he did after the kickflip.
He's tough, but when praise is due, Barnett never holds back.
Meanwhile, in the bushes ...
Demo time. Having someone who can bust big air always helps in these situations.
stones of dissent
God, I'm glad I'm not a teenager anymore.
Leo decided to blast big out of this contraption because ...
actually, no one was sure why he tried this.
Not even him.
'What? Are we done?'
Dan Lu hooks up the drones, sockwise.
'So ..... Whole Foods?'

10/18/2019The two-day tornado of rock, rap and radical known as the Thrasher Death Match whipped into the Big Apple recently with brain-scrambling maneuvers sharing space with hellacious pits – plus all the ferocity that names like Omar Hassan, The Gza, Kader Sylla, Gorilla Biscuits, Roman Pabich, Roc Marciano and Pedro Delfino conjure up.

10/18/2019After a big night it’s time to either sweat out the poison or try to soak it up. Alltimers attempted both with a donut-fueled skate jam at Fat Kid the morning after the Death Match. Burnout prefers chocolate old fashioneds!
