When I asked Matt what spot he wanted to skate, he told me about a spot with a fire hydrant that he had already filmed some tricks at. The fire hydrant is in between a sidewalk and a traffic-induced street. We got to the spot, and I set up my light and chose my angle. After dealing with the nonstop traffic and the perpetual appearance of a police officer telling us to get out of the street, Matt was able to pull of a beautiful hardflip.

This week I asked Matt if he wanted to skate south street gap, a popular spot to the local skaters. Asphalt from a parking lot ascends to the sidewalk, creating a gap from the parking lot to the street. We decided to skate early in the day to avoid the traffic. After grabbing some donuts and setting up my angle, I was able to capture a perfect frontside flip.

Ive been trying to get my friend Matt to skate this ledge for weeks. Now that the holidays were over we took a trip to the local high school. the ledge I wanted him to skate was about 10 to 12 feet long and surrounding a tall palm tree.
After applying some wax and sweeping, Matt decided to go for a front blunt. This is the image I was able to get when he landed the trick.
