Andy Kuno and John Cardiel Hit the Yard

YouTube Preview ImageAndy Kuno has been a San Francisco skate rat since his teens. Through his father’s work with the SF Giants and 49ers he became interested in photography and eventually turned it into his career as the team photographer for the San Francisco Giants.

And although he shoots a team based sport as his profession, Andy’s love of skateboarding hasn’t diminished. In fact, it’s how he rolls to the ballpark everyday. Have a look into one particular day this past May, where Andy met up with John Cardiel to bring some custom made Chrome bags to the SF Giants players Matt Duffy and Hunter Pence. Filmed by Dan Wolfe. Scored by Tommy Guerrero and BLKTOP Project.

“When Steve Van Doren let us know Vans wanted to step up and really do the Skateboarding Hall of Fame right as part of their 50th year anniversary celebration, I knew we’d have the chance to do something really special,” said Josh Friedberg, Skateboarding Hall of Fame Ceremony producer. “The show has just gotten better every year, but now that we’re in an event space like the City National Grove of Anaheim, there is no doubt in my mind that this will be the best year yet.”
