Congratulations Steev and keep killin’ it!

Monday Cover 30 - Alex Dinwiddie

Gravity, what’s that? It seems some folks are noticeably less affected by gravity than others. Case in point, Alex Dinwiddie, this week’s featured skater on Monday Covers. We met Alex on a recent trip to Aumsville and managed to snap a few pics of his gravity defying moves. Checkout this tweaked-out frontside tuck-knee air. See a few more pics of Alex’s antics in last week’s installment of Foto-Friday.

Of course, this is just our opinion. Now go get some perspective with this week’s YouTube Tuesday selections and don’t forget to wave a lighter while swaying to the jams.
