“Salt Lake Sundays”
On a cold, windy day last winter, I was downtown riding a ledge spot by myself, as usual. At the time, I had recently picked up my bike after a five year hiatus and a move across state lines, and I didn’t know a single other rider in SLC. As I was riding this ledge, a crew of about 8 dudes showed up and started sessioning that spot with me. It’s somewhat intimidating to be trying to re-learn basic tricks in front of local shredders as well as a couple dudes you grew up watching in videos, but after introducing myself I just kind of fell in with them. Chills not skills, right? As the weather warmed up, sessions picked up, and I quickly learned not to leave my camera bag at home. Because of the overbearing Mormon influence so prevalent in the state, Utah more or less completely shuts down on Sundays, allowing access to pretty much every spot in the city. Winter is about to hit us like a ton of bricks again, but I’m stoked to be able to share some of my favorite photos from the past year of Sunday cruising.
Cam Wood is pretty well known for doing some wild shit in unexpected places. After a few 180s out of this fountain in front of an old folks’ home, the entire sidewalk looked like it got hit by a tidal wave and the fountain had been almost totally emptied out.
