Slaptap Photo Drop: 005 Connaire Skerritt - Topsoul to Mute Post Bonk
The fifth photo of the Slaptap Photo Drop is of Slaptap and Valo UK Rider Connaire Skerritt coming in hot with a Mute post bonk from a steezy Topsoul in Strasbourg, France.
What was officially our Second day in Strasbourg would be our first day actually out on the blades and boy did it show. The first day skating was jam packed with spots, tricks, clips and photos with Connaire leading the way early on. The second spot of the day would be a flat rail to post bonk that had a very low roof to contend with. This didn’t put Connaire off one bit, even after one attempt that left him just millimetres from decapitation!
Despite the challenges this awkward spot threw up making it a lot harder that first anticipated and yours truly dropping the ball on a few perfect post bonks. Connaire still came through with the goods to get the clip and photo. What a lad!
These photos were and taken by Sam Cooper using a Nikon D800 and a 15mm Fisheye Sigma Lens with Three Canon 540EZ Speedlites and Pocket Wizards as well as a Canon AE1. Words also by Mr Cooper.
