Gallery -- Built To Shred Sessions


Gabe Brooks, superman.

Recently, photographer Tommy Blanco met up with a random crew of LA-based riders that included Gabe Brooks, Kevin Porter, Jimmy Levan, Nick Tarrant, Pat Wang and Andrew Jackson for an impromptu session in a junkyard. After spending most of the morning creating unique obstacles to ride, the crew got to work with Tommy behind the lens. The session lasted throughout the day, and even though Nick Tarrant hit the eject button at height once or twice, everyone went home healthy and exhausted. Click on the following gallery to see what happens inside the junkyard.
