27th April

For Brofile #9 we lined up local ripper Alex Baker and put him in the spotlight. We shot these photos over two sessions — a little park and a little street, challenged Alex a little and he more than nailed it. A purveyor of colourful shirts and hand-crafted griptape art, we caught up with Alex to give his two cents for our quick fire questions. Here’s what he had to say…

Jayden Edmonds » Ollie over the tabletop

I was on the scout for a young ripper to shoot for November’s Grom of the Month, so headed down to Washington. Chilling over in the corner I spotted Jayden Edmonds, recalled a few good lines and tricks up his sleeve from our Skate Jams, and hit him up for a shoot.

There was no waiting, straight on the board and hucking ollies down the bank to the flat in a matter of seconds. His energy and enthusiasm for skating is huge (or he’s just had too much energy drink), if he didn’t land something, or I missed the split second for getting the right shot, he was back dropping in before I could get my old haggard self back into position.

Here’s what Jayden had to say for our quickfire questions:

7th July

After keeping an eye on this young dude over our summer series and seeing him absolutely rip around the parks at the mere age of nine, we decided to get him onboard for July’s Grom of the Month… Introducing Saul Titheridge.

Saul is definitely one to watch with his 110% commitment and enthusiasm to skateboarding. He drops in, bails, gets back on the board and drops in again until he gets it. Awesome to see. Could be inspiration for some of us older skaters who get lazy and make up excuses… Scroll on for his quickfire questions and some photos of him tearing up Washington.

Name: Saul Titheridge
Age? 9
Reg­u­lar or goofy? Reg­u­lar
Fav local spot/skatepark: Wash
Fav trick? Indy
Street/Park/Bowl? — Why? Park, Because there are more things to do.
Who hooks you up? No one (yet)
Fav all time skate­boarder? Bam Margera
Fav skate vid/ last one … Read More »
