Round the bend

Listen skateboards' Rob Gonzalez knows the ledge. A Long Beach, Calif. native, Gonzalez has been hitting up ledges since back in the mid '90s when he rode for Nation and wore gigantic, ankle length shorts. His kit and his skills have gotten an upgrade since then and he shows it here pushing a Smith grind through this curved ledge in Los Angeles with composed style. (Photo: Ben Karpinski)
