On one of the days that we were in Vancouver earlier this month, we met up at that famous brick bank spot seen in countless Canadian videos. (It is one of the few recognizable downtown Van spots that is not knobbed.) Each straggler running from the fear of the night before would show up to the spot, and share the same observation:
“Wow, Leon’s trick was fucking crazy.”
At the top of the bank is a small fountain that separates it from a wall made out of a bagillion tiny rocks. In Vans’ Courtesy video from February, Leon Chapdelaine wallrid it in justifiable slow motion.
Eventually, one of latest arrivals to the sesh had to burst our bubble: “Riley Boland already did that years ago.” It was even on a Color magazine cover. He indy-grabbed while doing it, but yeah, that wall has been rid.
Nobody changed their opinion. Leon’s trick was fucking crazy.
