Skateboarding and hip hop music have long been synonymous with fly techniques and underground. With similar origins rooted in the streets it can be free flowing, maddening, technical, individual, raw, or collective. It’s not about who the person is or where they’re from, it’s about the technique and skill. It's the same expression with two different presentations. Nothing is off limits. Anything can become a new sound or trick. And the catalyst is finding common ground and converging together.
Be prepared for fat beats, fly looks and sick tricks.
