Real Skaters Wearing This Summer’s Most Excellent Clothes
Slacker steez and high fashion collide on the ramps and half-pipes of Southern California.

For our Summer Music issue, we dispatched photographer Sandy Kim and stylist Ian Bradley to capture sun-kissed slackers—including skaters Nico Chiat, Ade Greenidge, Amos Trujillo, Levi Kortez, Rashad Meighan and Aidan DaRe—in their natural habitat, wearing the season's tightest looks.
