Summing up Rigo in one paragraph is not an easy task. He’s a complex man, and it shows in his photography. If we could dissect his brain, my guess is that we’d find a jumble of mathematical equations processing at a mind numbing rate. Rigo shot his first skate photo in 1986 on his backyard vert miniramp in Boulder Colorado. He would end up in San Francisco for skateboardings early hay day in the late 80’s. And was blessed to be part of the famed Embarcadero scene. He eventually ended up in Whiterock settling right in with the OG Board Kennel crew, where he skated and shot photos with Canada’s finest. Circumstances brought Rigo to the island, where he eventually bumped into me and we became blood brothers instantly. Rigo’s photos are now a staple of the Vancouver Island skate scene.
