This week’s YouTube is all about respecting people with skills in places that you might not traditionally find yourself offering dap. Don’t worry I’m not going to try and make you sit through some rollerblading, Lord knows that for all the dialog skaters spout about how closed-minded society is to judge them and not see their point of view as we grind another blackened and chipped waxed ledge in an act that is debateably different to casual vandalism, skateboarding judges the shyza out of everyone else in return.
