Mike Sola is one of my oldest skate homies, he just happens to live 1/3rd of a mile from me and we still hang. Although Mike isn’t as limber as when he was a professional skateboarder for Madrid, his love and passion for skateboarding remain the same just as it did when we were kids. I had Mike dig out all his old photos (yes, real photos) and realized there is A LOT of stuff here that is Arizona Skateboarding History at its finest. Not only did Mike have the opportunity to travel and skate in some amazing places, he also had a camera and shot some killer photos himself. This is the first in an ongoing series entitled The SolaFiles: Photos From Mike’s Shoebox where we attempt to archive these killer snaps.
