I’ve been shooting with Brad McClain for about eight years now. I remember the first day taking him around to Fresno he was blasting four-foot stalefish airs in the second pool we hit that day. I was blown away and asked him how many pools he had ridden and he said those were his first ones. Needless to say he is a natural when it comes to tight transition. The difference between Brad and a lot of other transition skaters is Brad's ability to put together lines doing back-to-back tricks on every wall of the pool. He can blast an air in the deep straight into a backside tail on a side wall, then grind the shallow end and head straight back into the deep and do another big-air type trick. That shit is rare. Brad is one of a kind. —Peacock
