Anyone who has tried to skateboard knows how difficult it really is. It requires a great deal of balance, timing, and precision, but when done correctly it looks completely effortless.

Anthony Acosta can skate as well as he can shoot a photo. After assisting a professional photographer friend of his, he put the skateboard down as his main trade and started shooting skate photos. Now, he works for Vans, TheSkateboardMag, and freelances, snapping photos of friends he used to skate with. Here are some of my favorite shots from his portfolio.
