I’ve been living and shooting skateboarding culture for a long time. Some aspects of the culture are really difficult to figure out how to communicate… That is not true of the partying. The amount of love and affection that comes out when a large group of skateboarders get together for one reason or another borders on seriously homo-erotic, but is really just a level of comfort that is amazing and special. These images are from two such get-togethers. The first was in the Outer Banks for James and Beth Tupper’s wedding and the other was Eric Hunt’s birthday bro-down in a cabin in Lake Lure. Both were nights to remember.
