“Thumper Nagasako, Tim Franken, The Imagyne Crew and myself headed toward upstate New York to catch some clips for Joe Perez’s upcoming video “Fitted.” That’s how we got to this amazing spot in New Rochelle, NY that has potential for several hammers to be thrown. In order to capture Thumper’s massive Disaster Alley Oop Soul, I had to lie on the steps just below his feet. Some call me crazy, but Thumper laced this trick flawlessly and 360d out over my head. I shot this picture using one flash on a stand behind me. Be sure to check out Thumper Nagasako’s unbelievable vert rollerblading DVD, “HighRollaz”. Support Rollerblading” – Sam DeAngelis.
