Crazy to think I picked up my first skateboard over 20 years ago now. Ever since those early days, skateboarding and filming skateboarding have always gone hand in hand for me. Rolling around the local supermarket carpark we’d crudely gaffa-tape a fisheye lens to the front of an old VHS-C camera covered in skate stickers and document our best efforts.
I recently became an instructor at a kids skateboard club in West London called My Little Boarders. Based at the skatepark in Royal Oak, we teach kids aged 5-15 all the basics of skateboarding - from finding the correct stance, learning how to turn and eventually Ollies and skating on the ramps.
