Atlantic Drift: Episode 1 - London

Posted by Route One on 5th January 2017

Jake Harris returns with an 'on trend' slice of London skate action in the form of this Thrasher released part, curiously entitled 'Atlantic Drift: Episode 1.'

Featuring his usual cohorts in the form of Isle riders Tom Knox, Chris Jones, Nick Jensen, Casper Brooker and Sylvain Tognelli, plus the likes of Skate Cafe's Bristolian wonder-gentleman "mad" Mike Arnold and Antiz Pro Remy Taveira, this is a somewhat interesting mix of alternating songs and video formats, encapsulating some truly spectacular action from the crusty streets of our nation's capital.

Favoured obstacles return; as always there's a bit of Southbank, tricks using the infamous '3 up 6 down', that banked manny pad hip round the back of Waterloo (which surely needs a better name!) and the blind bump to seven set Knox made famous in Vase. There's also plenty of ad hoc shredding, long lines and newly discovered gems to keep even the most ardent of spot hunter happy. You could do a lot worse than kick starting 2017 with clip, we can tell you!
