‘Who Leg’ — A 2021 Surprise From the Stop Fakin’ Franchise

F.T.I. Presents: ‘CLUB DRAGON’

Some of you might remember the “EGG” edit that graced the homepage of this website back in November of last year, which was an Orchard Skateshop production showcasing the new generation of talent coming of age at Boston’s premier ledge spot.

“Club Dragon” is the latest from that crew — except instead of a one-spot outing, the tricks honed at Eggs also make their way to an ensemble of New York City ledge spots and greater Boston locations that have become increasingly a go in the COVID age of lower security.

The video is edited by Myles Underwood, who just launched a Fuck This Industry webstore to commemorate the new project / brand / whatever they decide to turn it into ♥

Stop right now, don’t comment on it, go watch something else on YouTube

Features: Myles Underwood, Dana Ericson, Brian Reid, Sean Evans, Ismael Diallo, Ben Tenner, Armin Bachman, Luca Ettore and Dutchy.
