Omar Salazar.

Grinding upside down in a full pipe & hippie jumps of death.

Omar basically just goes for broke at full speed with his own style and trick selection. He's from San Jose and grew up in Sacramento. He was sponsored by Foundation and Rasa Libre before being abducted to the Alien Workshop. Omar also rides for Nike. He had the opening part in the Mindfield video from 2009. J. Mascis had a cameo and laid down the tunes.

I'll be moving along to 2008 starting on Monday. The grand plan is to cover four weeks of the zero eight and then do four weeks of 2009. After that I think I'll be going back to the one or two weeks on a single company from a given time frame. Those are easier put together over randomly browsing a year. Plus I hate scanning two page spreads.

Mike O'Meally took the boneless photo. The other photos are by Greg Hunt and Fred Mortagne.
