About

‘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.

Quarantine 'Can You Skate It Comp' hosted by Taji Ameen, Vice, Lifevalet

So by now, we have been quarantined for some many months and the cops are killing us, and maybe we have started back doing some normal activities, mainly skating outside again...

To lighten things up a bit... here is our competition we did.

So the rules pretty basic... the entries will be judged by superstar judging panel. 

Judges- Billy Rohan, Chris 'Dune' Pastras, Alex Corporan, and Stephanie Tonnoir. I love doing contests and seeing the talent, excitement, enjoyment, and just bringing the community together. Enjoy the action, it all about having fun.

Thank you to our hosts, sponsors, and of the skaters! Thank you Taji and Vice for including us with the amazing sponsor list of Hit Balm medicinals, Stereo Skateboards, Grillo Pickles, Schaller Weber smoked meats, Trophy Griptape, and Samurai Skateshop.
