What Daryl Angel Did Today
What does Daryl Angel do each day? Does he play basketball? Does he steal fruit? Does he make necklaces out of macaroni and give them to the homeless? The answer in each case is no. So what does he do each day? Does he write Frasier fan fiction? Does he furiously masturbate to a photo…

Flashback. Montreal,1966. A young National Film Board of Canada (NFB) director named Claude Jutra has just made one of the world’s first skateboarding films.

Steve Brule’s Skate Poem
From Check It Out With Dr. Steve Brule
Shit Going on in Skateboarding: 4/3
Hooooolllly FUCK. Most proper, massive noseblunt on a rail, probably ever. He locks in as solid as a brick wall at the top and just sits on it until it’s finally time to get out … and just casually rolls away. Fuck.

We made it there in the end, but the windy roads gave…
