’69 DART: PHOTO ANNUAL OUTTAKES

LENS: KEATEN ABBOTT

The landscapes that Keaten Abbott captures are nothing short of breathtaking. His images make you feel like you are a million miles away, yet somehow at home at the very same time. MC contributor Kelton Woodburn asked him for some insight behind the shots.

SIDE STREETS: DOLAN STEARNS

In my opinion Dolan Stearns is doing some of the most outrages shit on a skateboard. He’s going about it in a completely different perspective, which is really interesting to watch, and is jaw dropping when you realize how dangerous some of the tricks are he pulls off.

WATCH: IN OUR NATURE

Taking skateboarding out of it’s typical context and taking it to a Tetanus minefield. This rusty as hell ramp sets the perfect backdrop for destruction, loud music and of course, fire.
