Grant Brittain Talks Skate Images, Iconic Photographs, DMSR Days And Extra on New Hawk Vs. Wolf Podcast

Each complete legends in their very own proper, J. Grant Brittain and Tony Hawk go means again and listening to them reminisce on the glory days of skateboarding (and clearly a complete lot extra) is all the time a deal with. 

As the most recent visitor on the Hawk Vs. Wolf podcast, Grant talks all the things from skate images, skate historical past and the Del Mar Skate Ranch to his new e-book, cancelling plans, the enduring Chin ramp and a lot extra. Press play! It is story time. 

There aren’t many (actually, if any) different skate photographers on the market with an archive as spectacular and downright iconic as Grant’s. He is been making historical past behind the lens of his cameras for many years and many years—masking the very best—and continues to get on the market to at the present time. 

Severely… roll to Poods park in Encinitas on any given day and there is a good likelihood you will see Grant together with his backwards hat, hovering over the deep finish of the pool, digital camera in hand, doing what he does greatest. Such a beast!

The Swift cameo was superior, too. Swift and Grant have been a fairly iconic duo over time all the identical. From Grant capturing Dave in his early days as a hungry up-and-comer to working at Transworld collectively, beginning The Skateboard Magazine and 30+ years of friendship—these two are absolute skate encyclopedias. 

Truthfully, I might hear these 4 sit and speak ceaselessly. Grant continues to encourage new generations of skate boarders and skate photographers and this little journey down reminiscence lane was epic to say the least. If I have been you, I would head to Grant’s web site and begin adorning your partitions together with his timeless pictures, too. Peep ’em right here
