It is crazy to see how far street skating has progressed in the last 10 years, going from rad to even radder on a train flying like a bat outta' hell. There has been a list of names that have helped engineer this train, with many only purchasing a short trip ticket and have had to exit a few stops down the track to fade off into the real world or at least out of the public's eye. This is the trend in the skate world and it seems to be inevitable, and then you have Andrew Reynolds. This man has been in the lime light for many, many moons and has some how manged to maintain control of this run away train the entire time. He has been throwing him self down ledges since 'Nam and is probably out there somewhere right now lining up the next gap he plans to nollie heel. The man loves skateboarding and has paid his dues to perfect his art and for that we all owe him a huge thank you. To pay tribute to the man who has inspired so many I wanted to give a video that truly displays the total prowess package possessed by this animal on wheels. Emerica's Stay Gold B Side was the perfect montage of clips to do justice. I have always loved this video and I am so stoked to share it with you today! Sit back and enjoy this 8 minutes and 25 seconds of paradise.
