Every year since my 40th birthday I try to get a few skate photos together as a way to motivate myself.
Predominantly street suff, it is always satisfying to ride what was not intended to be skateboarded on.
I have my birthday as the deadline. The aim is to push myself and get something I am not too embarrassed about. It is like an annual time lapse as I turn into Patrick Stewart, but less fabulous.
So, behold, bask in my mediocrity! Is what it is. This is where I’m at.
Thanks as always for Duncan Ewington for shooting the great photographs and sprinkling glitter on this turd!
