Preston Maigetter, probably better known as P-Stone to most, lost his life in a tragic car crash a few weeks ago and as he was filming all the rad skate action, he was behind the lens most of the time, although he was a all terrain shredder and it shows in the rare footage there is of him skating.
So we thought we´d show one of those rad shots of him skating that Lui Aundrup took.
And if you want to help out his family a little, here´s the link to his Go Fund Me site
I think it was fall/winter 2005 and we were checking some spots with Mallorca locals Tolo and Miki and Jose Noro and we met Preston at the Santa Ponsa ditch, I think he was the only one skating, so I took a couple pics, a bonelless and an ollie.
After the session we had some beers and shared some stories – good times. R.I.P P-Stone
I checked out Thomas Kalaks photo exhibition this Friday and ran into some old buddies I hadn´t seen for a while – good time seeing these guys and talking about some fun stories. Thomas was one of the best vert rollerskaters in the 80´s and early 90´s and also shot photos
for the Monster Skateboard Magazine.
He moved on to shoot a lot of comercial stuff in the 90´s and does mostly art projects nowadays.
This exhibition showed a recent project where he documented the work on archaeology sites.

Untitled Stories by Sergej Vutuc
27. Juni 2008 – 25. Juli 2008
“I capture moments which are stories penetrating my eye via the view finder. With these I am travelling
through everyday life and the universe and with their help I communicate with my environment. Sometimes I find answers to personal questions, sometimes I am screaming at the world.”

In the 21st century he traded the guitar for the camera. Since then his works have been shown in galleries and streets in various countries in Europa and America. His photo are published in several internation art and skateboard magazines. “No Skateboading Permitted” is Sergej’s book.
