Big week from the always-persistent smith grind kickflip (see also) — the semi-agreeable trick that keeps going, and going, and going. Long-gone are the days when it was a point of contention, as it is as common as a kickflip back tail these days. Preemptive apologies to the “eww, skatepark clips?!” crowd this week, but that #2 coulda/shoulda/maybe been #1.
Oh, and Kevin Taylor is the Vince Carter of skateboarding. Not sure if they’re doing Epicly Later’d anymore, but a K.T. one would be fire.
