Thomas Morgan.



Thomas Morgan started out as the vert am on Alien Workshop, but with street skating pushing the giant wooden ramps out of the spotlight, he had to switch things up. His part in Time Code was all street action. It was pretty good, too, with a bunch of lines and solid flip tricks.

I tried learning fakie pop shove - its because of this ad. I figured that since I had my regular ones down, I should try doing them backwards. The trick never worked out for me. I can say that for a lot of tricks, so it's no big deal.

The photo is by Paul "Skin" Phillips and the video sequence is by Dave Swift. The video grab doesn't look horrible either, but it has the benefits of being small and in BW.

Pitre is one guy I've been meaning to put on the site. I'm planning on picking out a new batch of stuff to scan in over the next few days and I'll make sure he is in there.

Awesome. One of the most underrated pros ever. I've been lucky enough to have skated with him several times back in the day. One of the nicest dudes ever.

I've been waiting for a Thomas Morgan post to pop up from you, cbi or pi. You beat them to the punch!

Got to skate with Thomas a couple years back in Toronto. So good to see him on the board.
