Vaughan Baker Re-up: Lines
If last week's Vaughan Baker Footage Feast whetted your appetite, here's another course in the form of ten of our favourite single lines he has committed to film - get stuck in below!

Miniramp line (0:55) from Ideal Skateshop - Chillin (1998)
This one comes in the midst of a miniramp tech onslaught; kickflip fakie, tre fakie, nollie backside flip, switch flip. The line at 1:15 is pretty mind blowing too, (switch stalefish anyone?), while a post miniramp attack line sees both a regular and mongo push all in one between trick period!
Broadmarsh Banks (2:15) Unabomber - Unapromo (1998)
A fakie flip down a small but grimy stair set leads into a monster kickflip at the old Broadmarsh Banks.
Kickflip, ollie (1:08) Unabomber - Headcleaner (2001)
Kickflip then ollie down two sizeable stair sets that look like they might be in a garden centre; I always liked the aesthetic of this one, created as it is by a combination of steez, background and gnar.
Nollie, Frontside Flip (1:35) Unabomber - Headcleaner (2001)
Vaughan floats a nollie then a frontside flip over two rails at the car park spot of dreams.
Back 180, switch ollie (1:51) Covert Media - First Broadcast
Grey skies, car parks and two fences with drops behind them - definitely a small town UK spot, this line is rad.
Plaza Line, Shuvit nosegrind(0:33) Blueprint - Lost and Found (2005)
High speed tech radness with a switch frontside 180 over a bin, nollie tre then shuvit nosegrind.
Nollie heel, nollie nosegrind, backside heel (1:11) Blueprint - Lost and Found (2005)
Another tech one, this kicking off with a nollie heel, a solid nollie nosegrind and finally a lengthy backside heel.
High Ledges (2:13) Blueprint - Lost and Found (2005)
High speeds and high ledges make for good viewing.
Bank Line (2:36) Blueprint - Lost and Found (2005)
Two tricks on a rad looking bank spot with just the right levels of crust...
Southbank (3:43) Blueprint - Lost and Found (2005)
...and speaking of crust, there are worse ways to finish a post than with a clip at the Southbank's lesser seen stairs - the haggard ones hidden upstairs like a mad old aunt in a gothic horror story. Vaughan fakie flips the three before twisting round and nollie flipping the big 'un, like a boss.
