Since i just created my blog i am doing a little archiving and decided to post a blog about the Red Bull Rampage because it was my favorite event i have shot to this day. I was always a huge fan of this event after seeing video footage of it, but after being there in person i can say that although the footage was sick, it almost did not do the riders any justice. The cliffs were huge, the drops long and fast, and the jumps were epic! There was definitely no room for error.

This past January i spent 10 days in Puerto Rico shooting for Original Skateboards and their riders. We drove across the island hitting up various spots and came across an abandoned hotel on top of a mountain that overlooked a city. We decided to hop a barbwire fence to check out the hotel and we found an empty pool filled with garbage and glass, as well as a roller coaster shaped roof top that had an area to skate on that was about 3ft wide. The roof was a bit sketchy to skate because there was a 100ft drop if you fell of the roof. After skating the pool and roof for a few hours we decided to bolt before we got caught trespassing. A Puerto Rican cell was not where i wanted to end up on my trip.
