Firing Squad: Street Skating Battle

Skateboarding was born in the streets. Finding something smooth (or not so smooth) and figuring out how to use it. The creativity bred in the streets can certainly make for some interesting photography, and this week, we have five photos shot in places you’re probably not supposed to skate. It’s up to you to decide who wins this week’s gift certificate and is eligible for next week’s grand prize battle for a Monument 777 snowboard for shooting the best photo, so vote for the one you like the best (even if your friend sent you here to vote for them!)

***The next battle theme will be crash shots (before, during or after) so get your shots in!***

  • jimbo

    Photo 1 looks like he’s either about to slip-out or land super sloppy. I liked photo 5, but photo 3 is super sick too. Still on the fence on that one

    2 isn’t a joke, but those jazz arms are. 3 is tight as hell, none of them are poorly shot though, most have great composition; it just sucks that the firing squad is getting better photos now.
