Artist's Description

Croudace Bay Skate Park, New South Wales, Australia.

Look closely at this one, there’s a skateboarder doing a K-Grind ! It’s a trick where the skater ollies ( an aerial manouever without grabbing the board with your hand ) and lands on his front truck and does a nose manual grind until he jumps off the object.

It took a few shots before I even managed to get the skater in the photograph. You have to roll pretty fast when you ollie up to a rail like this one, so you are not in the frame for very long – just a fraction of a second. I clicked, but by the time the Flash fired the skater was out of view. So I had to take the same photo 4 or 5 times until I worked out what it sounded like as he skated towards the rail. When I heard the skateboard reach a certain distance on the right of the shot I clicked. By the time the flash fired he was just about one third of the way into the frame and I got my shot.
