Dean Palmer: A Scholar and a Gentleman

Posted by Route One on 24th August 2016

Do you know what is far too regularly missing from skateboarding these days? Great big dollops of micky-taking comedy. But worry not! Aussie mag 'The Skateboarder's Journal' are on the case and have teamed up with Passport Skateboards' ripper Dean Palmer to produce this hilariously brilliant little clip that not only showcases Dean's Surrey Hill home and his green fingered prowess but also is ability to ride a skateboard. It's the perfect amalgam of frivolity and radness!

As with so many of his contemporaries Dean is a proper all terrain ruler, equally at home flipping into and out of fiddly balance manoeurvres as he is jumping over rails or wallriding out of ditches; if you're wanting that 'pre-skate stoke' up to eleven then this is definitely your mid August clip of choice - keeping it radical on all sorts of terrain whilst your crew cheers you on is pretty much as good as skateboarding gets!
