Flip of the Lens

Monday Cover Vol. 7 Issue 10 - Bryce Kanights

If you skate in the Northwest, an indoor skate bunker is a hot commodity during the wetter months of the year. Taking full advantage of one of those skate bunkers is this week’s Monday Cover skater, Bryce Kanights. That’s one stylin’ smith on the DoS bowl lip. A man with a multitude of irons in the proverbial skateboarding fire( SkateDaily.net, Lifeblood Skateboards, Skaters for Portland Skateparks, Photographer, …), Bryce still finds time to refine his skate chops. Check out a few more pics of Bryce “lofting his jive” at DoS bowl after the turn.
