Shogo Kubo

Glen E. Friedman took some amazing skate photos in the 1970s. Our skate crew in P*Land idolized the skaters he shot, but these days I just idolize his photography.

Above: Shogo Kubo, one of the most underrated of Dogtown's Z-Boyz. (Click on the photo to enlarge it.) One of my favourite skates back in the day was a red air-beam Shogo model put out by Dogtown Skates. I snapped it in half somewhere, I think at Derby Park in Santa Cruz doing aerials off the hump.

Those were the days.
