Throwback Thursdays: Elena, Wolf, Aidan, and Levi in Vancouver

Another Throwback Thursdays feature is here and this time it features a few longboarders in Vancouver from February of 2015. I shot a little afternoon session with Elena Corrigall, Wolfgang Coleman, Aidan Lynds, and Levi Green. Brock Newman from Newman Productions was there too making a video and we went to two spots and got enough footage and photos for what we needed.

My main focus was to get photos of Elena Corrigall for a short feature on her, right as she was deciding to stop racing and riding competitively. She killed the women’s class in the IDF the year before, so I had wanted to get some photos of her and talk to her about the world of longboarding. Brock Newman made a video of Elena to go along with my short interview for the magazine. All the dudes helped out here or there by spotting or holding a flash for me. They were itching to skate as well, though. In between shooting Elena, I also shot photos of the other three and present them to you now.

We all met at the Landyachtz HQ and left from there. Wolfgang had to set up a board to skate and Elena had to finish up some work in the shipping department.

This photo would be a lot cooler if he didn't have a sign coming out of his head.

That was the end of the session. Elena Corrigall was later featured in the Finish Line issue 23 of Skate [Slate] Longboarding Magazine.

Thanks to all the riders featured. And thanks to Brock Newman for the rad video. It was definitely a fun session!
