"My buddy Erik and I thought it would be a cool thing to try something different than usual. I wanted this shot to be less set up," said Journe of his category-winning photo. "Skating the street from front to back a couple of times, I kept trying to get the right shot. After almost smashing my camera on the concrete, I thought I would give it just one last try. This is the last image I shot in that series."
