Famous skate crash caught.

Anyone remember this famous mid-air collision?



This is Pat Duffy and Gonz, Wembley Stadium, London, 1997.

Well I was right there with my Olympus XA camera and caught the crash milliseconds before impact. I wish I had shot it just a tad later during impact. I must be standing right next to the filmer of that footage. This is a super shitty scan from a proof sheet. I'll get a nice clean hi-res scan of the negative for the book I'm working on.

Skate crash? what is this, Boom Boom Huck Jam?

But, uh. Shit. Mark flew over the fucking car. It seems as though even the most un artistic beer drinking meat barbecuing skate wanker loves gonz. I love the 1997 gear. Cargo pants and shit. small chest logo kinda big tee. beefy shoes.

Nice Emerica logo in the frame.

new book, you say?

Is that Model Photoshopped? Shit. Fuck Hubba wheels. spitfire needs to make an ad of Alex Olson chilling by the pool coping with wheels on his wiener.
