Still Life: The Golden Age of Barcelona

Mark Appleyard frontside nollie heel on the Arto Saari Turun Sinappia board, a Flip classic. Mark was a traveling maniac around this time period, one week he’d be riding a camel at the pyramids in Egypt, then the next he’d be skating a mini ramp in South Africa. Every now and then Mark would pop up in Barcelona for a few days and skate, before disappearing again to another far off place and this is one of those occasions. Mark can be one of the hardest people to shoot photos of, it’s not unusual for him to land all his tricks before your even out the van, I’m always stoked to get a still of my man Lemon Props, congrats on Ethan Indy Appleyard!—Oliver Barton
