    But yeah, looks legit. Is skateboarding still cool? I thought everybody got into football and festivals after the Selfridges/HTC carry on.

    A proper picture wouldn't have gone amiss, but maybe they had to use whatever Getty Images the Guardian are allowed to. Still, Bilbo Braggins will be raging.

    A request to skateboarders everywhere: When some contrarian cunt comes along and starts spouting their usual piss dribble about things that they don't understand (because believe me...they will come along soon enough), please don't make an account and start hounding them and calling him a fetid little cuntbubble who should have been killed with the claw end of a hammer at birth or something. I think that this might be the most positive article about skateboarding in the history of our entire civilization and I'd love it to stay that way...

    ...Or just razz them up creatively and absolutely crush them with logic.

    Either way.
    Stoked on this.

    Don't assume what that video contained Les. Watch it all the way through and then dislike it.
