Pointed downhill, you hit the turn hard, brake a little late so you let off, trust in your bike. Lean the bike over and feel the tires grip, on the limit, not quite on the sidewall. Your arms tingle, everything makes sense and nothing matters for an instant. We’re not the only ones after this. Meet the world class downhill skateboarders of Santa Barbara who we met on a post work ride and dreamed up this collaboration. We thought we’d create a video of our dance downhill with these men, bike and board in unison, a shared expression of a life lived away from digital noise, where humans put faith in each other and their personal equipment.

“Nothing behind me, everything ahead of me, as is ever so on the road.”
― Jack Kerouac

About Stinner Frameworks:

We build handmade, custom bicycles that unite their owners with the California spirit of freedom, fun and adventure. Each Stinner is unique; a marriage of metal and soul fine-tuned to delight and inspire its rider.

We build bikes because we love them and the places they take us, and we accept no limits on either.

Born in Vancouver, Les has been backpacking and adventuring around the globe most of his life. Skateboarding made it easier to get around, eventually leading to a long trek skate adventure across Kenya. With a new appreciation for skateboards and some good connections, Les dropped everything to make skateboarding his life and, as they say, it's all been downhill since. Now Editor at Skate[Slate] and one of the owners of Flatspot Longboards, Les spends the rest of his time raising his first kid, plugged into the skate-web, and skating with Coast Longboarding.
