Seeing the chance to lend the spotlight to one of the UK’s brightest talents, Nike SB has recruited the services of young Casper Brooker on its burgeoning roster. Coming up in the camps of indie stalwarts Heroin Skateboards and Emerica, Brooker’s casual irreverence for stair counts made him a new poster child for the school of tight pants and hard knocks. Yet now at the ripe age of 20, the Shoreditch transplant applies his talents to more rugged settings, blazing through London’s cobbled streets with a keener discretion for spots. The above part showcases Brooker’s new approach – which is just as precise and technical – while an interview with Grey Skateboarding gathers the ripper’s personal take on his new team switches. Enjoy the above.
