Aaron “Jaws” Homoki, kickflip
“After being forced to seek shelter from a violent thunderstorm with 50+ mph winds, we headed back out on the rocks so Jaws could try to get this kickflip before the next storm came in. The wind was so strong it dried everything up in about 20 minutes. He was able to nail the kickflip just before another front came up through the valley. And just so you know, no wood was used in this photo or any other from the article. Straight rock skating.”—Jonathan Mehring, photo
