We would never call Jordan Riachi the most stylish skater we’ve ever seen, style is subjective and what is aesthetically pleasing to us may not ring true to the masses. But it’d be hard to argue he doesn’t make riding a plank of wood down a hill look as effortless as throwing back a gas station meat pie. Jordan made his yearly pilgrimage to California last month and had enough time to hit a few Bay Area classics before heading inland to skate one of the crown jewels of Northern California. Listen as he touches on everything from the origins of style, to belligerent roadside fist fights with Liam Morgan.

Les Robertson

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.
