Malto, switch flip over a fire hydrant in Kansas City. This day was unbelievably cold! My equipment was acting weird because of the bitter cold.
A little story behind this photo….
Malto was messing around warming up one day and switch flip 5 board on flat. Needless to say, I knew he had to do something with that switch flip. This hydrant spot is one of Kansas City’s favorite warm up spots. It’s the same spot Sean skates in his espn day in the life (google “sean malto espn” if you haven’t seen it), it’s also the same spot where people through eggs on you car! Anyways, I told Malto that he should switch flip this hydrant. He had never thought about it, which is weird because it’s the first thing that came to my mind when I saw he could switch flip that high. He didn’t think he could do it but within about 10 minutes he was rolling away from one of the best switch flips I’ve ever seen!
feeble grind from yesterdays session. there’s a crack before the first set of stairs, so you have to ollie on to it quite early, which makes this rail freaking long and scary… out of focus, but I still kind of like this shot…

Went out filming with Chris last week during the ridiculous heat wave. While we were at this spot we got a few tricks with the t2i (60p, mmm) but I HAD to get a still of something since I had never even been to the spot before.
