Our man, Sam Milianta, recently had an amazing article in No. 802 of Popeye Magazine out of Japan. The article is full of awesome Salt Lake City skateboarders and BC Sandy team riders. Below are some photos that did, and did not make it into the article.

Garrison Conklin: Ollie From Bump to Flat - SLC, UT
"The ollie is the foundation of almost every trick on a skateboard. When you are just learning to skate, you practice ollie-ing up curbs, over soda cans, a deck on its side, a manhole cover, off a picnic table and down stairs. You are always trying to go higher, longer, faster—and it feels amazing. Some people just have unbelievable power and finesse in their ollies. Garrison is one of those guys. I would have been happy with an ollie from curb cut to curb cut here, but Garrison saw the challenge to clear the whole driveway to the flat on the other side, and went for it. I’m sure it felt just as great as the first time he ollied up a curb."
