While walking through the Park today, I noticed a kid eyeing up the small rail with Uncle Sam giving him some pointers for a SPoT lessons session. The student's name is also Sam and today he made his first boardslide on that little rail. What a damn good feeling learning something new like that. When you're as old as I am, that feeling is few and far between, but still surfaces every now and then. I was hyped to capture Sam's first boardslide plus Uncle Sam's secret on 360 flips that he's currently teaching Sam.
