Word on the street is that North Carolina has emerged as the holy grail of ridiculously steep and curvy roads. We had to see for ourselves if the rumors were true so we put together a crew of some of our healthiest bois and sent them to meet up with NC local Philip Skaar. What we found was one of the strongest and healthiest scenes out there, and so many runs for us to skate the boys didn’t have much time to practice runs. The schedule consisted of following our guides to a new run, film a first descent, and hope to make it out unscathed. Wash, rinse, repeat. The result is 20 minutes of the most hectic footage we’ve ever filmed. Huge thank yous and respect to all the locals who helped us along the way.

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.
