Born in Vancouver, Les has been climbing and adventuring all over the world for many of his life. Skateboarding facilitated journey, ultimately resulting in a protracted trekking journey throughout Kenya. With a brand new appreciation of skateboards and good connections, Les dropped the whole lot to skateboard his life and, as they are saying, the whole lot has been down since. Now Editor-in-Chief of Skate [Slate] and one of many homeowners of Flatspot Longboards, Leser spends the remainder of his time elevating his first little one, plugged into skate-web and skating with Coast Longboarding.
