Sebo Walker, Switch heel

Photograph By Garric Ray

Anyone who has skated before knows that youí're bound to get kicked out of spots and after a while you'íll hear some pretty funny reasons as to why you have to leave. This stair set in downtown Portland is a great example of that. Surprisingly enough, it'ís not the skating at this spot that will get you kicked out -- ití's actually the filmer and photographer who will get you the boot. "Due to Homeland Security related laws, anyone with a camera at the park will be told to leave because it'ís on government property," Ray says. "Luckily, Sebo and I were able to sneak in there and get this switch heel before security spotted us."
