All too frequently we hear of professional skateboarders making the pilgrimage out to California to kickstart their careers. Seeing as many skaters come from other parts of the world, sometimes making the adjustment is hard. After making it into the pro ranks and submitting a notable part for Real Skateboards’ Since Day One, James Hardy returned to his home state of Alabama to skate and recoup. Hardy looks to be in his element in the latest individual part from Thrasher Magazine – “James Hardy’s Homecoming” – which finds the young skater delivering some pretty mature rail maneuvers in and around his home state. Whether it’s switch, regular or downright massive, all of the clips in the above part are worthy of a second watch. Enjoy the video above.
