Fabric Skateboards flow rider James Bush is one of the most exciting new talents in the country. Originally on Motive Skateboards, for whom he featured in a great welcome video from February 2012 filmed by Rob Selley and Andy King, he moved across to Fabric in 2013.
Also sponsored by Dephect Clothing, he landed himself a spot on the DC UK team in July 2012 alongside riders such as Jody Smith, Nicky Howells, Sam Pulley and Dylan Hughes. To celebrate the occasion, Selley put together a short but banger-packed web section for James, filmed in and around his hometown of Milton Keynes.
James started skating at the age of 10, when a friend with a skateboard came to stay with his family for a few days. After a few goes he was instantly hooked, and after bugging his parents to get him one, he was finally given a skateboard for his next birthday. It wasn’t long before he was ripping up the streets, showing dazzling technical prowess for one so young.
His skills were seen most recently on video in 2013, when he skated with MK homies Selley and Sean Smith in an impressive edit from Barcelona’s DC Embassy. Later in the year at MK’s The Buszy, he dropped some early-90s-inspired flatland business in aid of Flip Tricks and Wizardry, and he also featured in a clip filmed at Radlands Plaza in Northampton for a Get Lesta ‘Ten Tricks’ session.
