Brian Shamanski --

"I moved from Winnipeg, Canada, which was cold and flat, to California's Bay Area in 2007. Year-round sun and more skateboarding and spots than I could have ever imagined. I met some people and began networking, traveling, skating and shooting as much as I could -- I was hooked. Over the past few years I have been introduced to a world of skateboarding I never thought I would see, made some good friends and met some great people along the way. The photos in this gallery are just a handful of those people. Enjoy the photos and how I see skateboarding."
