Seth Haupt – Backside Hurricane – Provo, Utah
The skateboard scene is thriving in Utah. There are so many people out there killing it that it’s nearly impossible to know them all. In the past, everyone knew each other—the community was that small. I’ve never even met a large number of the local skaters whom I follow on Instagram. Shooting this photo was how I first met Seth Haupt (@sloth_haupt) in real life. While we were talking, I learned that he actually came from the same rural Utah area that I grew up in—a small town where skaters are scarce and where the kind of skating that Seth does is even more rare. Here’s to meeting and skating with more people in real life.
