Cameron Martin.

Is skateboarding an art form or just a break from too much Nintendo?

Cameron is from Seattle, Washington and rode for Powell Peralta. He might have been the last person to legitimately turn pro for freestyle. It's interesting how Powell kept freestyle going by having a couple of pros on the roster at all times and by making sure they had cool graphics. I'm sure those guys weren't getting the same royalties off board sales as the rest of the team. It is also interesting to note Venture dabbled with making a freestyle truck, although everybody would be riding skinny boards in two years time.

He did. I know this because I actually went to college with Cam at Brown University. These days, he's focusing on fine art.

His website is here:

That's awesome. His art looks pretty good and I see he's wound up in some major permanent collections.
