Ozzie Ausband



Perhaps a duality exists in the modern skateboarder that tells them whether a certain line they are following is going to work itself out alright. They carve deep across the face wall, cutting between the drain & light, only to accelerate toward the hip at Mach-5 warp speed. They can see it coming in their minds eye. Their brain & nervous system function to provide them input….make or break? Good or evil? Yes or no? Go or bail? I believe that there are times when the session becomes heavy & we tell ourselves, “Damn the consequences!” Those are the moments when all things flow. Thanks to Dan Bourqui for the photograph.
