Dave Twiss – Photo: Lino Gonzalez

This is an amazing shot of legendary Maine rider Dave Twiss doing a fakie air barspin.  The best thing about his barspins are that he learned them on random sketchy Portland setups and has never touched a foam pit.  I have seen Dave pedal so fast at a fakie air its seriously scary and I have literally never seen anyone get as much height on them.  Not to mention he’s throwing a barspin in this.  Lino shot this one while the 90East and 207 crew were riding together last fall.  Check the face to bar ratio. I will pay for Daves airplane ticket just to go to the next  T1 fakie air contest because I know for a fact that he will win.         (click for higher res)
