Edited by Alex Corporan, Ivory Serra, and Andre Razo, with a foreword by Tony Hawk.

‘captures the sensation of flight and movement within heavy, confining spaces, and the sweeping colors of the boards, the graffiti, and the riders as they fly between the gray sky and grayer pavement’ —The New Yorker
Skateboarding in New York City is a singular experience. It is impossible not to feel the magnitude of the landscape, and with the city in constant motion, skateboarding is both exhilarating and extremely dangerous. There is no right or wrong way to navigate this vast terrain. Only one thing is certain – the skaters and images produced in New York City are wholly unique.
The shots in Full Bleed span 30 years, with contributions from over 40 photographers. This tenth anniversary edition is a comprehensive overview of one of the most diverse and rich skating locations in the world, bringing together legendary skaters and iconic photographers.
The skate community came together to ride and rally for Black Lives Matter. We as skaters are almost by nature outcasts, so we ban together.
Dave has been on the El Señor team since day 1, we are grateful to have been a part of your career. No stranger to the stage Dave's musical talents and skateboard talents have brought him around the world a few times. His humble ambition is admirable.
We brought out his signature 'Traffic light' pendant a few years ago, thank you everyone that got themselves one.
His new pro board is available now from Shut Skateboards.
Let's fight injustice and bring equality to all.
Be safe, be smart, and stay healthy.
One Love, and Peace.
