You may have noticed that skate culture is really huge right now, if not you haven’t been on the streets of London for a while! With the surge in popularity in street wear and the hype that surrounds every Supreme and Palace release skateboarding is at its coolest since the 90’s.
I’ve always been a bit of a skating idiot if I’m honest. Ever since my younger and moodier Avril Lavigne days I’ve thought that Skateboarding was amongst the cooler sports. I loved the style, the chill vibe, how it looked. So I’m all here for the fact that it’s more mainstream again and I’ve even cracked out my Vans Old Skool to celebrate. But I couldn’t do any tricks, I’d break my neck if I dropped into a bowl. Watching the skaters on Venice Beach when I lived in L.A and messing around on my Penny Board with my friend Taylor along the Santa Monica boardwalk are some of my fondest memories of my life out there. So to commemorate the surge in skate I dedicate this post to a sport I love but I have failed to be cool enough to ace.
