Aurelien Giraud's 'Dream Trick'

Posted by Route One on 21st March 2019

Did you see Aurelien's Bangin' the other week? Oh my days, how mental was that!?! (It's here in case you missed it). Like Joslin if he was French and wore sportswear, Plan B's Lyon native went in harder than anyone we've seen and we really thought his year couldn't get much better.

Then came this, his #dreamtrick. First things first though, before we dive head first into the sycophancy, we really need to clear up his skate trick nomenclature error; he calls it a 'fakie tre nosegrind' but because he is popping fakie, we have to be pedantic and point out he's actually landing in a fakie 5.0. We know a lot of you won't give a damn but these things matter, you've gotta maintain standards!

Anyway, enough about that, it's not as if we could even do the trick on a kerb so we really ought to get back to blowing that proverbial smoke - Aurelien really is so good it's hard to fathom. The trick itself isn't really a battle, perhaps 15 tries at most, and when he does it he lands it oh so clean. Perhaps we shouldn't be surprised anymore, after the La Defense insta clip and the Tampa best trick it seems Aurelien can do whatever he wants. Le tricks du me reve indeed!
