    Very well caught Al. Reckon a little tighter cropping maybe and this would “pop” even more. Love it.

  • I tried a couple of different crops Paul this one seemed to work best
    (for me anyway) lol

    Ollies?? Am I old and what’s an ‘ollie’ lol. Great shot though, whatever it is he is doing,.

  • Cathy an ollie is a no handed arial. The easiest way to explain it is that the skater flicks the board upwards then scoops it up with their feet.
