In 1992 John Cardiel and Ron Knigge visited Newcastle for a demo sponsored by Newcastle City Council. Seeing Cardiel skate was mind blowing. His energy was intense, hitting every obstacle at mach 10. This is one of my favourite photos just for the uniqueness of the trick, the timing (see his cap falling), the familiar faces in the background and for the fact that it's John Cardiel. All hail!
