KENNEDY ARCHIVES — Filmer Fail: Carlsbad Gap Sessions

In the mid-to-late ’90s and even into the early 2000s, the Carlsbad Gap was one of skateboarding’s proving grounds. It’s been skated by a veritable who’s who in skateboarding, featured in countless videos, and it’s been filmed dozens of different ways. The only time I got to film there was back in October of 1998 with Jeremy Wray, James Craig, and Josh Kasper. Although it was a heavy session filled with some incredible skating, I always felt like the way I filmed the gap made it look super small. In my defense, it should be noted that this was before the “Deathlens” was available for the VX1000 but nevertheless, I always felt bad for not doing justice to their skating. —Colin Kennedy
