Taylor Ritchie | Zero Porn Star - Vancouver, BC

Earlier this year I was visiting Vancouver, BC to attend the 10th annual Popularity Contest. The day before the competition I met up with my friend and photographer, Will Pursell. Will and I had discussed shooting a photo while I was in the city. On what felt like the hottest day of the summer, I met up with him just outside of Vancouver. We checked out a few spots he had in mind but unfortunately I wasn't feeling any of them. Then Will remembered a famous snowboard rail in the area. We drove up a windy road to the top of a hill. The view was beautiful. Nothing was up there except for an information centre, a large parking lot and the rails. Will had warned me that the rails may be capped and sure enough they were. When I looked closer it appeared that the caps on one of the rails had been worn down a bit. I was sure that with some wax I'd be safe. We agreed this was the spot. Will quickly setup his equipment while I put my skates on and started waxing the rail. The first few attempts were a little freaky. It was definitely going to be a bumpy ride. After a few mind games and some half-commited attempts, I landed it. Then I landed it a few more times for the shot. Zero porn to forward. We were both stoked. We high-fived, packed everything up and headed out.
