Riding spots are literally everywhere if you happen to know what it is that you are looking for. To the average person, a set of stairs with a handrail is just that; but to a rider it’s an entirely different story. I think that once it’s in your blood you will never be able to look at a city in the same way again. If you have the eye for it and know what makes a spot a good spot that will never change. Riders spend days, weeks, months and years looking for spots. Some riders like rails, some like stairs, some like gaps, some like technical set ups, some like ledges, and some like whatever it is you put in front of them. As a photographer it is my responsibility to have a solid directory of spots ready to go for any riders that are down to shoot. Over the years I have spent countless hours on the hunt, always visualizing how certain tricks will look on certain set-ups. When a rider comes to town, I always need to be ready to cater to their specific style and bring them to spots that I know they will be pumped on. Basically I wanted to take some time and talk about all things spot related. If I have your interest by now, keep on reading and enjoy this weeks TTL.
