Stu Graham is the sort of skater that these 'lines' posts were made for; charging full speed at the gnarliest concrete put in front of him, not afraid of a massive transfer or a heavy slam (I nearly decided to break from the lines theme and do a 'Top Ten Stu Slams' this week), he can also throw in unexpectedly technical tricks to keep you guessing. Keep on browsing for ten of our favourite lines the Ogre has committed to film...

Stu floats transfers and a beastly wallride around a Scottish indoor job, in pursuit of the final goal of a frontside flip over the doorway.

Another one from presumably the same indoor park session as the last one, this time with a frontside doorway grind and smith bash over the spine leading to a tre flip on the opposing quarter.

Stu flies around his US home territory of Washington Street - nosegrab frontside grinding, getting stiff over the hip and finishing with a front rock slide celebration.

An amazing looking banked hill bomb/ditch spot sees an ollie over the hip and a bluntslide fakie down the hill before the rest is bombed switch, at 100 miles an hour, round a corner...backwards hesh law...

Two tricks are all that's needed here - a frontside scratch to set up, then a quick footed back d sugarcane to fakie in a particularly gnarly looking corner of WSVT.

Stu harnesses his Livi flyout and transfer roots and takes them to some US 'crete via a tre flip to the deck before rolling in and floating a tailgrab between two quarters, steez!

You're allowed to push when the shallow end is as kinked and disproportionately sized to the deep as this one...

Stu goes in, tearing up a backyard pool with a violently stomped frontside grind and rock n roll.

A concrete behemoth gets hit by the Ogre in full flow, rolling in, hitting every corner and finishing up with a crunching frontside smith.

A lesson in simplicity, power and speed sums up the gist of this article nicely as Stu floats into shot over a pyramid at 100mph on his way to an oververt carve grind...
