PHOTO JOURNAL: Erik Allas #3

BS Farv

I first met Gavin Fitch well over 10 years ago, when he was just a grom attending a skate camp put on by the folks at K2. I went to hang out with some friends and help them teach kids fundamentals of riding ramps. I might have helped Gavin ride his first mini-ramp, too. From grom to grown-up, from learning to drop in on a ramp to lacing steezy Backside Farvs on high long ledges, Gavin has stayed true to the Seattle rolling scene. If he’s not out shredding, he’s behind the camera filming and spotlighting NW rolling. This photo was taken on my portable ladder to get some elevation on the shot. Other gear used included my Canon 20D with 50mm lens, and 2 flashes camera right. After a first attempt and bail into stinging needle bushes, Gavin decided to put on his jacket for added protection against the shrubs, which I think added to the overall steez and contrast. — Erik Allas
