Mehring’s Bearings Presents: A weekend with Ishod.
A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of meeting up with Ishod Wair, Mark Suciu and some of their friends in Philly. It’s been a while since I shot in Philly but I was pleased to find a thriving, non-bitter, and very positive scene. The kids are motivated and killing it. Check it out.
Ishod reminds me a little of Dennis Busenitz or Gonz in that he is always skating something. He doesn't stop. As a photographer if you aren't always ready your going to miss it. No time to set up flashes, Ishod blasts a frontside 180 over this bump to bar on Market St. before getting kicked out by office clowns.
Ishod Wair- Nollie crook warm up trick.
Ishod Wair - Kickflip 50-50. Just having some fun. No big deal.
Classic spot - the U Penn flat bars.
Ishod Wair - Switch bigspin.
Mark Suciu 50-50'd this sketchy wooden rail in the dark.
Ishod grinded this little rail in a tight spot for fun and...
kickflip crooked this one for your eyes.
Ishod Wair - Ollie. Two tries or less this spot is a mega bust but definitely worth the chance.
