Back in the 1970s there was a magical location in North San Diego County known as La Costa and the Blackhill. It was the mecca of skateboarding and its evolution that provided a place to practice, test products, and race. Skateboarders came from all over to be a part of the gatherings of the who’s who of skateboarding. Without the Blackhill, none of the attributes such as the speed, beauty, power and the excitement could have led to the grasp the sport has had on the millions of skateboarders.

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.
