Hoody hoo!—that’s it—the Wheelbase Photog Challenge is a rap, and what fun it was getting here. Over the past two months we received well over a hundred photo submissions from all over the globe, and one of the happy results of doing this challenge was getting to see first-hand just how vast and how thriving our skateboarding community really is. Skaters from Russia to New Zealand are shredding hard and capturing it all on camera. It’s crazy ’cause every one of the photos we received inspired us so much and reminded us of what we sometimes forget, and that is that we are all part of a huge skateboarding family.
Ultimately, we had to choose just three photos to win the prizes and here’s how it played out: We chose the top-three based on technique, uniqueness, and style. It was a very difficult task, indeed, but we did our best and are stoked on the results. After picking the top-three we were then left with so many rad photos that we decided to also include ten more runner-up photo submissions in the article as well.
We’d like to take a hot-second to thank each and every one of the skaters/photographers out there who sent in their photographic stoke. You all did a killer job—hell yeah! We’d also like to thank the sponsors of this challenge for hooking it up big-time. A huge thanks goes out to Orangatang Wheels, Sector 9, and Paris Trucks. Without your support we could not have done it.
Enough with all this jabberin’—let’s see some action!
