Like kinda recently Nuge was like hey want to shoot a buttery sequence of a no comply flip up a curb. And I think my exact response to the T was like sure. Then I continued to set up my flashes and tri pod thingamajigs that I've seen the professionals do.
Once completely set up I think I followed with a "hey"(short pause) "just do it, Nike style". Than Nuge hit me hard with it. A no comply flip up a curb. I can shoot about 1 frame per 2 minutes so I managed to snag the whole entire sequence in a little over 10 minutes for one trick. Not bad.
My camera was a tad bit slow to get the roll up but I followed strong with the first initial board leaving the ground part of the trick. The pop...
At this point I was thinking to myself "dang he's got the height and the distance to actually make it up this curb"...then I was thinking like "dang.. I'm pretty hungry I hope he lands this quick so I can go get some food and probably a extra hot Caramel Macchiato from Starbucks".
This is my favorite frame from the sequence I think maybe, but still not sure but almost not positive. The one footed mongo catch. At this point I was almost 100% that it was a make.
Watch out the board hasn't completely flipped over to the good side yet! Somebody tell him... haha.. just kidding. He knows what he's doing.
Your ankles are about to be done if you land on the trucks and wheels side of the board. At this moment I was thinking to myself.. I wonder if he wears size 9.5 shoes cause he probably won't need as many Circa's if hes hurt...
He pulled it! Well he has atleast landed pretty solidly on the board. Lets see the ride away before we make a assumption.
Yep. It was perfect. Chalk one up on the sequence board for Nuge. Now celebrate by posing next to weird graffiti tagged in foreign countries.
