The Scene: London
In the latest episode of Kingpin’s ‘The Scene’ hits the streets of London.
Featuring Tom Knox, Danny Brady, Nick Jensen, Snowy, Chris Jones and a hell of a lot more. The edit features Stockwell Skatepark, the infamous Southbank, the City and the streets and banks of South London. The video is accompanied by Jake Harris‘ article ‘Mis En Scene’: http://kingpinm.ag/London
If you compare a Londoner’s push to, say, a skater from Bordeaux, the difference is undeniable – there’s no time to relax and indulge the slow arc of your leg when pushing down a London street unless your keen to end up on your forehead. Far from being an apologist for what might seem to be a fairly incomprehensive edit of the ‘scene’, I embrace this as a demonstration of what I’ve been saying – that the scene is too large to represent.
