Born in Vancouver, Les has been backpacking and adventuring around the globe for many of his life. Skateboarding makes touring simpler, finally resulting in a protracted skateboarding journey throughout Kenya. With a brand new appreciation of skateboards and good relationships, Les has deserted the whole lot to skateboard his life and, as they are saying, the whole lot is downhill since. Now editor of Skate [Slate] and one of many house owners of Flatspot Longboards, Les is spending the remainder of his time elevating his first youngster, plugged into the community, and skating with Coast Longboard.
