Its always good to see the pioneers getting love in the industry and ripping despite their age. Roger Skateboards raises their boards high and welcomes him to the team as their Token Older Vert Skater. Check the video and wish you could be this good at any age.
Following Kyle Featured
Kyle Leeper needs to fit as many tricks into his weekends as possible. In this Mark Gonzales inspired edit Kyle rips, non-stop, around the streets of Southern California spurred on by the distressing thought that come Monday he has to be up early to get back to work. The combination of creative skating, filming and editing makes this clip and awesome watch. Read more about the benefits of hard work and the some insight into the state of the skate industry with this interview and John Rattray's The Predatory Bird.
Our good homie, and Norcal Bataleon, 3L & Switchback Bindings team rider Taylor Lucia spent the day filming with Josh Fricke a few days ago, and they just dropped a hammer of an edit. Taylor rips. If you see him, you should buy him a beer. If you see Fricke, you should let him know he set the record for mentioning himself 3 times more than the rider being featured in the edit. Either way, the edit is great!
