Etnies presents: Kyle Leeper, Rain or Shine

March 18, 2011

This is just ace. Anyone who’s ever decided to go skating when it’s raining knows that it’s the perfect recipe to end up breaking something – you skid about all over the place, your grip tape gets really slippy and it knackers your bearings if you forget to give them a good clean and oil afterwards. Which makes this video of Kyle Leeper all the more impressive, the speed he hits stuff at is bonkers considering how wet it looks.

And the thing I said about how hard it is skating in the wet? At the end of the film there’s a bit that shows even he had a hard time doing this. Skateboarding in the rain. Don’t try it at home kids.

    I will not be trying that!

    Little note, the director Mike Manzoori was quite a force on the British scene many years ago.
