Backside kickflip to tail
Where to begin with Steve Berra? He started off as a vert am for Blockhead in Splendid Eye Torture and then switched over to the streets for 101, Alien Workshop, Birdhouse, Foundation and Television. He was one of my favorite pros during the 1990s, but not so much these days. I'm still looking forward to watching his part in Mind Field.
This is probably one of the last photos of him skating transition. I wish he stuck with being an all around skater instead of being strictly a street guy. If I could do backside indy 360s to fakie on vert, I'd want to make sure I kept that trick as long as possible.
The photo is by Dave Swift.
