And now for the Picture of the Week …
This colorful photo of an unknown female skateboarder was taken on April 4, 2009, during the “Patea los Reyes” – translation “Kick Kings” – pro-am competition that took place at Kings Park in Santiago, Chile.
The stylish, red-topped rider is dressed in street clothes not necessarily associated with skate competitions. But that doesn’t downplay her intensity in landing the attempted trick.
No camera info was available for this shot.
The photographer is Andrés Aguiluz Rios (who goes by the handle “magoexperto”). He also calls Santiago home. Rios has taken all kinds of shots, including some pretty intense scenes of marchers clashing with riot police.
