Burnout: Suitable for Framing
In a shameless plug, I direct you towards some of my favorite photos, prints of which are now available for sale via the bros at Aika Collective. What better gift for that radical special someone in your life? I mean, besides an actual skateboard, or a nice sweater, or a Thrasher subscription or something like that?
John Cardiel, Mexico City, 2002.
Squishing room only to see Cards destroy the airspace above a Mexico City skatepark opening. Cardiel photos are a good gift for a soul skater.
Antwuan Dixon is good at everything.
Indeed he is. This is from one of those Baker/Deathwish tours, 2008.
Dane Burman grinds the universe, Philly, 2013.
I know, you already saw it on that chick's Vine, but wouldn't this superhuman feat look nice in your sitting room?
Chris Cole on Chrome Dip, Cacka, 2010.
Switch front blunt on his second SOTY ride. Don't you think Grandma would want a print of this?
Deathwish Does It, LA, 2013.
This was a tribute to an amazing Windy Osborn photo from the 80s. Can't believe it really happened. Buy one for your driver's ed instructor!
Jon Dickson, roof to bank, Burbank, 2013.
Dickson is nimble for his size. This was a gap that HK had eyeballed for years, Whoo-whee!
Figgy's big crooks, San Pedro, 2012.
The gnarliest crooked grind of all time, now available for your breakfast nook! You killed it, Big Fig!
All eyes on Grant Taylor, Copenhagen, 2011.
Find Active Erica in this photo and win a prize!
Flair-off! Long Beach, 2013.
Sleeves optional for this bitchin' doubles routine. Whether he likes flair or air, this Hosoi/Gonzo print will make even the biggest Mariano fan on your shopping list smile.
Lance Mountain, high jump, Arcadia, 2008.
He's no hippie, but Lance Mountain gets airbourne over the ladder -- with color-coordinated foliage!
Chris Pfanner is an excellent swimmer, 2010.
My first pick, but hey, that's just me.
Collin Provost, Hawaiian skytime, 2013.
Yes, this is a ditch! Aloha, Christmas shoppers!
Lance Mountain, sparks, 2008.
Mountain blazes beneath the slide. Perfect for the more mature 'boarder this Kwanza.
Tom Remillard, shallow stairs, 2011.
My most re-posted Tumblr photo for some reason. Perhaps you'll like it too, in print form.
Andrew Reynolds, Bust or Bail, 2008.
The Boss tossed big at this one-of-a-kind SF event. Let it live on forever, framed above your jacuzzi or grow room.
Sherm naked, KOTR, 2004.
Need a White Elephant gift this holiday season? Doesn't get much whiter than this Sherm Rogers naked back tail.
Geoff Rowley, impossible, La Brea, 2009.
This trick cost Geoff and Gregson $20K each in legal fees! Now available to you for considerably less.
Russian Crowd, Moscow, 2008.
Do you like art? In this day, you have to. Trip out on this photo hanging gigantic over your bed. Those artsy broads you bring back to your cave aren't gonna be able to get their dream catchers off fast enough when they see this shit!
Ed Templeton, White Bread Buns, 2004.
Speaking of art!
Brandon Westgate, 360 flip, El Paso, 2013.
Too bad about that light leak (ahem ...) but this gigantor three flip would still make a really, really sweet gift for somebody. Maybe? Yes?
Thank you for your time, holiday shoppers! Merry Christmas, everybody!
