Guy Mariano, backside ollie.
I started skating in 1990 and at the time I was 11 years old… One day I watched Ban This at a friend’s house before going skating, and it was the first time I saw Guy Mariano. I remember how I thought it was that a little kid just like me was doing things I’d never seen done on a skateboard. He’s been my favorite skater ever since.
20 years later, I got a chance to show him around Barcelona and shoot some photos.
One day we went to Forum, one of the city’s most famous spots. I’ve been there countless times but Guy saw a spot where others usually see nothing but a wall and easily did his sick bs ollie over the channel gap.
Thanks Guy, was a good day!
