“Southbank means open space and freedom. It’s a place where you can express yourself without trying to express yourself. Skateboarding is a physical activity but at the same time there’s an art to it that no one apart from people who skate can understand.
One of my favourite Southbank moments was when I filmed Taylor Lewis do a whole line switch; sw 5050 on the small ledge, sw flip, sw heel, then sw 5050 the drop ledge. At that point I had never seen anyone skate the drop ledge switch, let alone on camera.
I hope for the future Southbank to be more progressive in terms of infrastructure but without taking out the historic parts.”
