Potrero del Sol Skatepark

The annual Chilli Bowl event at San Francisco’s Potrero del Sol skatepark is held every year in late August. I stumbled upon this event a couple years ago as I was headed home from shooting a high school football game at Riordan. Since I had my camera on me I jumped out of my car and found a little spot in the middle of an energy filled crowd to shoot these athletes. Skaters might be the greatest exhibitionist on earth. This might also be my favorite sport to shoot. I could feel the skaters adrenaline as they blazed through the bowl and explosively yet gracefully swirled through the air. It was a spectacular sight. Here are some photos. I plan on cutting up a video of the past three Chilli Bowl events and posting sometime in the not too distant future.
