I tend to think of myself as a huge skate nerd, and I am, for the most part. Nearly every morning waking up consists of checking the feeds for whatever I missed out on while sleeping but most importantly, I check the boards (Slap Magazine’s forum). I have been doing the latter for god knows how long, so it’s not everyday I see amazing footage from someone I have never heard about. For the most part, normally, I have some idea of who’s who and what’s going on. So when someone drops some new amazing footage without hearing any rumblings, it makes you take note.
The first time I heard of Miles Silvas or I should say “saw” was when I watched his Welcome to Royal Truck’s video. For such a quick clip that introduction always stuck out in my mind. I think it’s partially due to the clashing cymbals of Love’s Seven and Seven Is playing mixed with the kickflip front board at the end. That shit hit me like a ton of bricks. It immediately became obvious that’d we’d be seeing a lot more of him in the near future.
