BACK TO THE FEATURE
If a skate trick is iconic, you can bet it wasn’t easy.
To document a trick is to present a new thing into a broader context. Every new ad or clip somehow acknowledges what has taken place before it, while having the potential to influence what will come after it. The context of an iconic trick, clip, photo, or skater for that matter, evolves with the passing of time. Whether it be that someone comes and tries a harder trick on the same thing, or that it merely affects the way that later generations will come to approach skating in general—to publish a document of skateboarding is to engage in a conversation with skateboarding’s past and future.
