Two mediocre shots of Dave and Damien from some recent sessions at the DOS bowl in Portland. Mediocre because of the photographer, not the skaters. Enlarge the action after the jump. They recently added lights to the bowl and now you can actually see back there. Where as it used to be like skating in a very dusty closet, it’s almost too bright now! With the fairly new birch layer and the sudden illumination, it’s like the bowl riders are now more than an afterthought there. Thanks guys! These shots were taken mid installation, so it’s actually a lot brighter now.
This guy’s name is Dave. he moved to Portland a few months ago from Nairobi Africa to get to know his older sister better. I knew there was a skate scene in South Africa, but Nairobi? Actually, now that I think about it, we have covered action in Uganda and Mozambique.
This here is Damien C AKA damienhialation here on SNA. This is that thing where you fly out of the bowl frontside, plant your feet and hands on the wall and drop down to tail on the coping. What do you call that anyway? Wall plant sweeper? How do you take a decent photo of it? I obviously don’t know.
