Some dudes just plain out rip. The hours and hours of practice they have put in have paid off in dividends concerning not only their bag of tricks, but how effortlessly they achieve such great displays of art. These shredders are few and far between but luckily, Eastern Skateboard Supply houses a whole mess of talent all under one roof and even provides a canvas for each of them to express them selves freely upon during the daily hour lunch break. David Barnes (@dbarnez) is one of those #ESSCrew who takes care of business in the skatepark as well as handling it back in the warehouse dealing with all the clothing and protective equipment offered at ESS. Everyone knows the level of skating goes up a notch when this guy is around, yet he always keeps it mellow and skates simply because he enjoys it. Dave always has a smile on his face, even if he gets hung up on a trick all day, the dude never looses his cool composure. I was fortunate enough to be on hand the other day when he decided to throw down a banger of a line and obliged me to capture it digitally on film to share another glimpse into the "Best Break Room Ever" with all of y'all. Sit back and enjoy this extra grande backside flip paired perfectly with a buttery front board performed by David Barnes.
A Big thanks goes out to Eastern Skateboard Supply, a company who is for skaters, by skaters, and constantly looking to help progress this art we all have come to adore. Another HUGE thank you goes out to every single one of you who has helped support this site along the beginning of its journey. JAH Bless Y'all and Go Skate!
I am a skater who lives in Baltimore, MD. I am looking to spread the love of skateboarding through both visual and written means.
