Rider: Takaharu Nakai. Location: America’s Next Top Pro Model. Mt. Hood, OR. Whoa. I got to shoot Taka twice. That rules. This photo was taken at America’s Next Top Pro Model during the Highest Air event. I like this photo because Taka is going huge in a mini pipe, my friend Liam Gallagher is laughing on the deck, Aaron Biittner and Eero Ettala are just hanging in the background, and Willie McMillon has no shirt on. Also, Kurt Wastell and Kevin Jones are in the photo. That’s fucking awesome.
