Sidewalk 140 appeared up and down the country this week, accompanied by the new DVS flick "Dudes, Dudes, Dudes", featuring UK representatives Paul Shier, Lucien Clarke and Mark Baines.
We caught up with Baines and convinced him to take some time out from a hard days graft in Story to sort us out with his "Last Orders".
Person you spoke to: Dave-Dave, Story employee of the year, about some shop business.
Trick you filmed: Magee won’t let me say, haha! I can’t actually remember, it’s been a little while because of the weather and foot problems. All good now though, well the foot is, anyway.

Skateboarder who impressed you: Mike really impressed me in Mallorca, it was good to see him back amongst it! Ben Nordberg, Kris Vile...Chewy is a pleasure to watch. There are so many who are killing it right now. I was impressed with Mariano for laying it down in his part like he did, mad respect!

Keep your eyes peeled for Mark in the first of what promises to be many Offcuts Edits from The Story Store.
