WHEN IT COMES
to Photograffiti, there’s no type of skate shot that hasn’t crossed our paths. Those two pages near the back of the mag have spawned thousands of offspring—each one stranger than the next. But like any proud parent, we would never choose one kind of photo over another. They all have their own value, even if it’s for a laugh. Let’s just say these ones here are...special. As seen in the July mag.

pgc-1

COLT 45: Patty-cake with a jean-shorted croucher. It works nevery time.


pgc-2

LONG BORED: Boy vs. Planet. Who wins this epic gravity battle? Don’t bet on Earth.

 

pgc-3

THIRD LEG: The bastard son of a thousand fly-outs. This one is all junk.


pgc-4

RAGTIME: An ancient proverb says, "To turn nice suit into shit, just add skating."


pgc-5

BAD MOON RISING: Sorry, we can’t turn the other cheek on these. Ass shots are still a Deadly Sin.


pgc-6

MERLIN GRIND: This kid claimed it was a make. If so, get this wizard a sponsor.


pgc-7

MANFRED MANN: Rainbow photo incentives will have you blinded by the light.


pgc-8

OATES: Say no go to blunt coping dances.


pgc-9

HALL: Maybe some Daryl joke goes here? Ah, whatever.


pgc-10

HOCUS SCROTUS: One of the worst sights in all of nature, the man-bag dangle.


pgc-11

FORGET ME NOT: Don’t get too ahead of yourself on flip tricks. Keep your eye on that board!


pgc-12

SANDBAG: Shot too early, you say. Hmm... You were never really on it, were you, son?


pgc-13

CHEAP TRICK: There's nothing inherently wrong with pop shove-it tailgrabs, but they had their moment in the sun 20 years ago. For a reason.


pgc-14

SUX APPEAL: If you score a babe for an action/glamour shot, choose your early grab wisely.

Cover boy Jeremy Leabres front blunts through the kink and slides through a 16-page jaw dropper of an interview. Ben Raemers backs it up with a 12-page interview which leaves no doubt that he's one of our country's most valuable imports. GX1000 scrubs away at London; Volcom crushes some cobblestone in Portugal and Vans sends some notes from their video base camp. Fall may be coming but this issue is gonna lift your spirits, kid.Add this one to your collection.
