Labuan Skateboarders January 31, 2008

Filed under: Labuan — saifulrizan @ 2:07 am

I used to be a skateboarders back then, but quit when I got back in Labuan after spending my youth ages in Johor Bahru. Back then, there were not many skateboarders around. So I decided to quit.

I sat down at the skate park today (located next to Grand Dorsett hotel) after seeing a couple of skateboarders warming up.

I didn’t approach them, but rather sit on the bench and start snapping.

This is my first attempt on taking extreme sport action using this DSC H5 (previously I used BenQ DC C510 for the Warisan Square demo – it sucks!). I should sit somewhere to get the best composition.

    Hi Charles!

    Thanks for dropping by. Yeah, some of them (not those you mentioned) asked me to take their pictures while doing the tricks.

    I really hope I can take a good pictures of people on skateboard. Back in the days, Trasher and Slap are my reference (for skate of course).

    Maybe someday I will approach them and get their best pictures while performing the tricks!

    Cheers!
