How did the Ryan Hickey photo from Monday’s post manage to evade even the most resourceful scanner-based skateboard websites? Because it never appeared anywhere significant (Police Informer or Chrome Ball would’ve caught it by now) prior to Ryan Gee’s recent barrage of unseen 35mm scans from the nineties. Everything he’s been posting is east coast-centric, with a lot of Gino, Oyola and other favorites.

Say what you will about instant gratification eroding the staying power of media consumed online, but it’s likely that some of these photos would’ve never seen the light of day without Instagram. (Flickr never really popped off with skateboarders.) Gee has been posting two or three each day and doesn’t seem to be slowing down. It is pretty much the only non-@badgalriri account that is an absolute must-follow. Turns out Instagram is great for things besides lonely girls with unique lighting techniques seeking attention (♥♥♥), and making you feel like you’re missing out on stuff that probably sucks (omg #fomo follow me plz thx.) Now, if only Reda and Dimitry Elyashkevich started posting some of their archives…

Follow him via @ryangee_photo.
