Skate Photo Feature: Shylio Sweat

I grew up in rural Southern Utah—small towns, hardly any skaters and even fewer skate spots. One of those spots was the Kmart loading dock. We usually got kicked out within five minutes, so we jumped down the dock as many times as we could, as fast we could. Coincidentally, Shylio Sweat, Jerome Farrell and I ended up in Richfield on the same weekend. While showing them my old “spots,” we went to the now-closed Kmart to check out the old loading dock. All the railings had been broken off the dock. With a little creativity, we figured out a new way to skate the spot, and Shylio and Jerome got some good tricks
