About the Shot
This photo is of Brian Grubb doing one of the first kick flips on a wake skate ever documented on film. Not only is this bad ass itself, but another cool part about the photo is where it was taken. The little town near the lake is about 2 1/2 hours south of Mexico City. Lake Santa María sits inside of a dormant volcano which has been filled with rain, nearby rivers and underwater wells for hundreds of years. It was explored by Jacques Cousteaus' son and the depth of the lake has been determined un-measureable with its depths believed to reach to the center of the earth. Not knowing how deep the lake was made it incredible creepy and eerie to be in. This photo documented a turning point in the movement of wake skating in one of the most unique and beautiful lakes on earth.
