Levi’s Skateboarding has officially landed in China. A little while back, my buddy Wang Di, Edan and myself went out to get some promo photos for Fly and Skatehere.com. Theo Paul Santana came along and shot the photos for the look book.
We met up at Fly around 6:30, drank a few beers and then headed out to get some quick dinner before the night of shooting that was ahead of us. The day leading up the the shoot, Edan, my good homie and manager at Fly, hit me up with a few spots he thought would make a good photo. One of the spots he sent me was this perfect wallride, so I knew there was no pressure and that getting a usable photo would be relatively easy pending a hassle-free session. Wang Di didn’t really have a spot in mind, so we ended up at this bridge near The Bund, getting some “lifestyle” shots first.
From there, it was off to get a photo of Wang Di first. We ended up way far off from the wallride spot I thought we’d be heading to; plus it was starting to get late. Wang Di stuck a few solid switch flips, then it was my turn. Instead of going to the original spot that Edan suggested, we ended up at this crazy looking marble wave with a decent gap.
By the time I scoped it out, it was about midnight and the area was completely pitch-black. The only way I was even able see the start of the wave was thanks to a tiny LED light I had in my bag. I decided a boneless would be pretty easy and make for a quick photo, so I tried a couple and stuck one on the 3rd run up.
Check out a few more shots below from the Levi’s Skateboarding Fall/Winter line and be sure to head on over to Skatehere.com and Fly Streetwear if you’re in China!
