"Leo Valls skates for Magenta Skateboards, a company out of France. The team visited New York City to get some clips for "Tengu" a video by Colin Read. This was around the middle of winter, usually people would stay away from skating with temperatures in the mid 30's but I wasn't trying to miss out shooting this epic skateboarder. His power slides and quick foot maneuvers is what makes him one of the best styles out. While shooting this my shutter froze, because it was that cold my camera started spazzing out. Pretty afraid because this was shot on film, I got these photos back from the lab, and here it is. Sometimes the unexpected can be better than the expected." - Marco Hernandez
