As far as who’s done what, where, and when (I guess we’re just supposed to forget about why and how), handrails and the tricks that go down upon their slightly varied forms have transformed skateboarding over the past decade. The streetplants of the millennium, boardslides and 50-50s now have the mandatory feel of your everyday gymnastics meet, but bigger rails and harder tricks add a pinch of “gnar,” giving all of skateboarding just a little extra flavor.
In other words, we all appear to be benefiting from a few guys cooking. So as their spiciness trickles down to the least worthy of us who struggle to ollie cleanly down a harsh set of five, this month’s Dream Team pays tribute to the hottest chefs in the business they tirelessly make skateboarding tastier by serving up handrails on a daily basis.
Mmm, mmm, good!
