Ed Templeton.



The Tempster throws down a noseblunt slide on a curb. It's hard to believe Ed has been pro for eighteen years now. It's even harder to believe his cat Ptah is alive and kicking after the same number of years.

It's a Spike Jonze photo.

This was the first time I'd seen a noseblunt slide...I had to think about it for a good hour and try to explain it to my friends (who hadn't seen the pic) "...he's doing a noseslide on a curb, but on the TOP part of it...".

Actually trying it was pretty hilarious. Unless you were wearing those 540 or 720s (Airwalks), you likely ended up with a sprained ankle. I'm pretty sure I was wearing some zero two's when I first started trying them, boy did those last a good hour...
