I had never met Lenard but when his friend Kingsley sent me through this kickflip photo of him I nearly wet my pants. The set's been sitting in downtown Auckland and hasn’t seen much more than an ollie in the past decade. Recently he visited Sydney and I had the pleasure of watching him tear up a contest and holy shit, what can’t this guy do? I’m always proud to see a fellow New Zealander shine, Lenard is about to light it up!—Dave Chami
