Mike McGill McTwist 540, 1984
I shot most of my 80s skate photos of my friends, like Mike McGill. He was one of the hottest skateboarders of the day. Thousands of rolls of film ran through my Nikon, and I honed my photo skills daily at the Del Mar Skate Ranch, where I worked at the snack bar selling Cokes and Twinkies during the day and sleeping on the pool table at night. I was pretty much living the skate dream back then.
This photo from 1984 was shot in the keyhole pool at DMSR when Mike got back from the Eurocana Swedish Summer Camp, where he invented the 540, which was dubbed "the McTwist".
