Have you travelled alot? Favorite place except Japan? Ever been to Europe? Do you have any plans to come here?
I’ve traveled mostly in Japan. The only place I have been abroad is New Zealand. I would love to go to Europe and other countries but I don’t have the time right now
I have been a great fan of yours since Omocomo Issue 1.0 and I really love your work, all of your photoes are soo clean, what is your secret to shoot the â€˜perfectâ€™ photo?
I bought my camera without having any knowledge about photography, so I was just trying to get the thing working at first, and I still have a lot of things that I don’t know about taking photos. But the good thing was, I was still skating then so I was able to imagine the photo from the skaters perspective and the timing where the trick would look best.
The Dvd will feature profiles on Dan Dickerson, Jeremy Spira, Tony Rivituso, and the Santee crew ( Damian Wilson, Nick wood, Jimmy Ormsby, Robby Whitcomb and Lyke Shivak). Buy It! Sorry no Brian Aragon section but there will be alot of footage of him, so check it out. A Video you wont want to miss.
Availiable before december 2006. (Thanks Jeremy for the infos).

One released a video of the making of the photo you can see above (featuring Franco Cammayo). You won’t see Franco lace the trick but the video is nice.
If you look closely enough at this photo that Wes Driver took of Franco Cammayo while in NYC shooting for Rockstar Bearings new ad in ONE issue #1, you can clearly see the crewâ€™s belts holding the rail to the posts as Franco launches through some water to a badass grabbed backslide. Download a hi-res pdf and check out some behind the scenes video courtesy of the one and only Ray Mendez.
I’m sure you all already see that video of a US marine building himself a halfpipe in Iraq, or this other video of a bmx rider doing some rotation on the desert dunes of Iraq again.
Now here is a video of some bladers from the US army, skating some pratice rails in a base and some rail in a derelict building (Edit of Lane Lederman). I was really surprise to see this video, Lane Lederman is pretty good, and it was a bit surreal to see him in military clothes doing some nice switches on a rail wearing a machine gun !
I’m sure that a lot of skaters are dreaming to build their own park, a park that would fit their needs. Some skaters in Philadelphia had this chance, thanks to their city council.
FDR is a free public SKATEBOARD park that provides a 100% concrete skate environment (with the exception of the steel-covered vert ramp and mini-ramp).
FDR has evolved through a miraculous collaboration between the City of Philadelphia and the passionate and dedicated group of Philadelphia skateboarders who took the initiative to create a skate venue larger than themselves, one that will hopefully stand for many years to come. This park was built by skateboarders for skateboarders. Bikes are not welcome, because of the DAMAGE they’ve done to the park with their wheel pegs. Read more
Well i’m sure that bladers won’t have problems to skate there (bmxers were banned only because of the material damages due to their pegs), so if you have to chance to get there, feel free to post ! (How to get there).
