With a population just under 330,000 people, Leicester (the ‘eic’ is silent) is one of the smaller cities in England. Not unlike other places of its size, the city often overlooked when it comes to cultural contribution. Thankfully though, the Internet has eased the situation – especially in the realm of skateboarding. Here we find UK-based Sidewalk Magazine hoofing from its cushy London offices to the East Midlands to speak with one Callun Loomes – a founding member and chief videographer of fun-loving GET LESTA crew. As the name implies, GET LESTA has made a name for itself by ushering its homegrown grit to the skateboarding world, adding members to its crew along the way. A shining example of how small communities can make an impact on its respective scene, enjoy the inaugural episode of Sidewalk‘s “The Unsung” above.
