James Grindley is UK skateboarding in human form. Unafraid to sleep in his car for nights in a row when on a mission, or to drive around the country jumping off shit for no material gain: James is relentlessly, unerringly stoked on everything.

Happy birthday from all of us James - you rule.

Peep this 'Reminisce on This' part put together by Smash Skates - a collection of James' footage gathered in the recent past and plenty which you won't have seen previously.

You can't swindle The Grindle!
