Morgan Wolf at The Cove 08-15-2012

Morgan Wolf at The Cove, August 15, 2012

Morgan Wolf has been skating extremely well for the past year.On January, he landed #4th at the Combi Pool Classic (the Ams contest at vans) and he just landed at the 5th place last week-end at the Pier Park for the PierFecta contest (sorry TriFecta). Given that the level of the Vans Ams in the Combi Pool is insane, you can easily imagine how Morgan skates… He is mostly training skatin at The Cove performing his lines and some ridiculous trick combinations for the upcoming Rocky Mountain Rampage 2012 contest at Memorial Skatepark in Colorado Springs. But since the Colorado Pool is a kinda similar to the vans Combi pool, he is also going to Vans, a lot…

Well, that’s only when there’s no traffic. He was actually supposed to go to Vans today, but, you know about the traffic in Southern California. So he came back to The Cove where I took those pix…

Morgan is a very good friend of Austin Poynter with whom he skates as often as possible, and that’s not easy since Austin Lives in San Diego and Morgan in West Los Angeles… Quite a distance… Plus, Austin is at Ocean City for the Dew Tour those days, let’s see how Austin is doing on the webcast…
Morgan Wolf, Staple Gun at The Cove
Morgan is so easy to work with: every trick he does, he lands it. That’s a delight for us skateboard photographers…

The second trick of the series is a Staple Gun. Frankly, I had never seen that trick before and when Morgan landed it in front of me (yes, it was landed), I just laugh nervously and said: “Hey, nobody will ever believe you landed that thing”… But Morgan told me that people at Venice do it all the time. So, a Staple Gun, and landed it is!!! This is Morgan explanation of how you do it. “you throw your front leg over the coping with the whole board on the deck of the ramp and pull your leg back over and jump back on the board” OK. You got the explanation and the pictures, now it’s your turn send me your pictures, but only if you landed it… No cheating, right?
