"Ever since I saw a photo of Ryan Hickey do a wallride nollie out in SLAP I’ve always liked that trick. It’s one of my favorite tricks to watch people do and I always think it’s rad no matter what. It is, however, a trick that is really hard to shoot a photograph of. It always looks awkward. For example, the skater has one foot dangling off the board or the timing is weird. It’s basically just hard to shoot and I’ve failed numerous times."

"While this is a far cry from my photographic Swan Song, this photo of Jovi Bathemess doing a wallride nollie out just happened to work out for me on this particular day. Jovi is really good at that trick and I have failed to translate just how good his technique is, photograph-wise, on several occasions. On this day, at one of the more rugged spots he’s done it on, we finally got the photo."

"The boneless one is a trick I have always liked doing. It’s a classic trick that’s all about style. It was also the second trick I ever learned (it was much more common in 1990). I told Matt that I wanted to shoot a boneless at a street spot. Matt’s response: “What would Peter Hewitt do?” Apparently, he would do something like this."
