Zoom In: NY Skateboard Decks

March 29, 2013 | Aymann Ismail

You never get to see the bottoms of skateboards, so we asked these skaters around Chelsea Piers and Times Square to flip their boards over. Check out the stickers, the tags, the scratches and the gashes that tell a story. Shred. Check back every Friday for a new photo essay.

See the photos in the gallery above.
