Not really. He was just doing some street yoga.

Can’t just go around making assumptions all the time.

  • Burnout: Death Match NYC

    Burnout: Death Match NYC
    The 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. A Bill Thomas photo show offered a glimpse into NY skateboarding’s golden age and the whole thing was free! Where were you???
  • Burnout: Glazed Over

    Burnout: Glazed Over
    After 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!
