Tyler Bush shoots Denver


Matt Kehoe gets a switch five-o on the barrier just before the summer storm hits.

I got a letter from the government, the other day -- I opened and read it, it said they were SUCKERS! OK sorry, those are Public Enemy lyrics, but I did get an email the other day from photographer Tyler Bush. It went something like this:

"I thought it might be rad to do a gallery/write up about the awesome skateboarding scene in Denver, Colorado. For the past six years or so I've been traveling to Denver in the summer to escape the heat of Arizona. I've got a ton of photos from traveling up there and skating with local Denver rippers, including some bigger name ams/pros like Ernie Torres, David Reyes, and Abdias Rivera. People from states like Arizona travel to Colorado for the summer, almost like a reverse snowbird type scenario. It's a fact that Denver is an overlooked city when it comes to skateboarding, which shouldn't be the case given their awesome spots, weather and local talent." 

Thanks Mr. Bush -- here you go.
