California was made for skating

Aside from a random rainstorm, brush fire or earthquake, California is a skater's paradise.

Anthony Acosta Skateboard Photography

Anthony Acosta is one of the best skate photographers out there and he also rips on a skateboard.
He's one of the young guns that I turn to when I have a photo question, he's got it down.

I was invited to shoot the Chin Ramp in 1986 and I was hoping to be one of the lucky ones to go up in the helicopter.
When Stacy Peralta asked me if I wanted to go up I did not hesitate. We came in low over the river from the west with Wagner's Ride of the Valkyries playing in my head and rose up over a small berm and witnessed the Bones Brigade members running up to the expansive ramp. The rest is skate history.

Haunted Bridge

The only accident I have ever had was on the Bonsall Bridge. It's a pedestrian bridge now. Matt Mumford in the mid 90s.
