Gus Molina’s Soggy Hop Bar Jan 30, 2010


Photo by Dave Beard

Hot damn. This is really really rad. Dave Beard captures Gus Molina mid-air during a hop-bar in the pouring rain. Well, it was a garden hose, but still. While Dave requests critique of the photo, with respect to shooting into his flashes, I think this came out fantastic. Really stoked on all the Fast Pace Zine dudes.

  • damn, ridiculously epic use of gels.

  • Damn, that shot’s amazing, dudes got pop too.

  • blah

    Fast Pace/Inland Empire dudes*

    Easily my favorite bike-related shot yet this year.

  • So ill! Big ups, Gus.

    Whether it’s in North County (most of Fast Pace, i believe) or South County aka South Bay (Chula Vista Fixed), it’s still in San Diego County–and that’s what’s up.

    Cult Classic in a couple weeks is going to be rad. Can’t wait to see who takes the 1 Min Freestyle. Re my boy Marcs: Prolly, you gonna be able to make it out to CC, by chance?

    If you come out, we can do a ride down to Tijuana to commemorate your visit and do up a proper tour of our region. Our SD to Tijuana crew is called Los Cruzadores–Spanish for The Crossers. Let’s cross some borders, mang.

    In reference to “biting” a published photo, I emailed the person whom inspired this photo, and he completely supported it.
