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.

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!
