Back in the early 1980s, I was a keen Skateboarder. I got my board from "Slick Willes" on High Street Kensington, which was then the number one place to get yourself a board. Now, I would not dream of getting on board simply because my balance is not what it once was.
I saw some Skateboarders today who brought back so much memories for me. They were kind enough to let me take some photographs. I was impressed by how fearless these youngsters are, they made for some exciting moments. It is great to see the self-expression of young people.
I hope you enjoy this collection.
I met some cool dudes yesterday.
One guy was named Teflon, with the red hat on. I didn't get his friends name, however, they were too cool an opportunity to pass up. These guys are two dancers who run and exciting dance group called YAKDANCE. Check out their website and big thanks to their generosity in allowing me to shoot them.
