"I love the speed"

“I love the speed when I skate. I feel very alive and present — feeling fluid and going fast is fun.” — Kekai, age 12

From the author: “I shot this in Hawaii in a skatepark overlooking the Bonzai Pipeline on the North Shore. Kekai promptly left our shoot to go surf with her mom. How awesome is that? A surfer/skater who is completely confident? Love it.”
