Headed over to Oakland, CA for 510 Skateboarding's event for Go Skateboarding Day and I'd say it was a pretty good turnout. It was pretty crazy shooting this event. At any given time there were anywhere from 2-4 skaters doing tricks around me so I was always on my toes. My timing was off too. I'd shoot one area, turn around to shoot another and a skater would pull off something to make the crowd go wild. It happened a few times which was really a buzz kill for me and confidence destroyer. Felt like I was a step behind, hopefully next time I'll do better.
Enough of that sob story, here's a few pics with a whole bunch more on my blog linked below. Thanks for looking!
Comments & criticism welcome as always.
5. On a separate attempt, he must've jammed his leg or landed wrong, but he was screaming out in pain after saying he broke his leg. He looked to be in a terrible amount of pain, really hope he turned out ok.
