Axel Tricavelli kickflip.

As skateboarders, we are always looking for new spots to skate. Me being a skater as well as a photographer means that when I see this kind of big planetary structure I can’t help but imagine how cool it could look if someone skated it. The day I shot this kickflip the session was already over when we suddenly ran into this big Saturn-like sculpture. At the begining I remember that Axel was not really in the mood for flying out of it, but I kept convincing him to juts try a couple of times. It would have been a shame to waste such a great sky and spot. It ended being one of my favorite shots of all time!
