Who knew you could ollie off a seven-foot drop in a tailored pink suit? Eli Reed — skater, photographer, paperboy, and renaissance man — shows us once again that skate style is not limited to streetwear, rather, it’s your individual type of style that makes skating your own.

Reed’s fearless fashion sense is emblematic of his courage on a skateboard—dodging oncoming traffic in the wrong lane, clutching the back of a motorcycle during midday SoHo hysteria, using his balance to barely escape death. The fluidity of Reed’s riding style is not something frequently talked about, which is why we decided to follow him around for a day with the cameras rolling and document it in action.
