From Livi Scum to Creature Fiend, seeing Stu Graham fly around a skatepark like an out of control freight train will redefine your views of how gnarly skateboarding can be - while a collision with the Scottish Ogre is likely to result in a hospital trip. He is back in San Diego as of last year, visa firmly in place and giving the yanks another first-hand taste of Livi-bred charging. With a thirst for concrete and a willingness to take a good slam, check out Stu Graham's Footage Feast for a dose of Scottish savageness.

Some OG Livi action from Stu and Ben Leyden sees the rough concrete get a thorough seeing too, before a brief bit of street action from Leyden and an indoor park session from Stu.

Slams, Livi transfers, street lines, AC/DC and violence...how skateboarding should be.

Fucking deadly dude! Stu's short section for Alex Craig's classic Scottish scene vid H'Min Bam is made up of high speed indoor park ripping and some heavy Livingston gap action.

Keg Killer is one of my favourite brews from P-Stones beer series, with this shared Div and Stu section helping the fermentation process in no small part as they tear up Washington Street.

Concrete shredding and the Pogues, it doesn't really get better than that! Beyond Stu and Matt Hensley not many people have skated to Shane's lilting rasp, everyone step their game up so I can put together a 'Top ten people who skate to the Pogues' post yea?

Pools, parks and streets get torn up Stateside as Strange Notes put together an edit to celebrate Stu's entering into the Creature pro ranks.

Lip trickery on a tight one for Kingpin's 'Ten Tricks' series sees Stu getting tech.

Getting buck for 'borgs! A Danish bowl gets terrorised in return for some adult beverages.

Creature Skateboards' most recent offering CSFU may not have made it to the internet in its entirety yet, but plenty of offcuts have - check out Stu and other fiends charging around the UK above, with more Euro missions found below:

A Sidewalk US trip catches up with Stu back in San Diego and absolutely shredding - the full story of how he was reunited with his family can be found in his Happy Ogre interview.

Some Livingston radness in the form of a Fun Day montage from Zander Ritchie closes this post nicely, I guess legs being Livi-trained must help with barging gnarly US transitions! Carry on through for photos from the Happy Ogre interview along with some bonus shots of general gnarliness...
