Trick: Backside Flip

Riding a new board is one of those things that’s awesome and terrible at the same time. Unfortunately for Gabe Paulson I came out to shoot photos the day after he got a new Mutiny skate to ride, adding another element to the equation: pressure. Since Gabe is already modest, he assured me that his session would be nothing to write home about. But after a few minutes, he looked pretty damn comfortable, and started in with tricks, that were infact something to write home about, such as this backside flip.
