I met Jon Campbell, “Bird,” two years ago in Oceanside while filming for our friend’s video, Stand By Fire. We would go out the night before we would skate, and Jon would forget to charge his camera and wouldn't want to buy batteries. He would just not take his camera out that day and just film clips for his part. With two full-length parts under his belt, he finally got it together and started shooting at every spot. He's been nailing photos of all our homies ever since. —Zachary “Ducky” Kovacs
