Blondey McCoy Feels the Pressure of Being a 20-Year-Old Model, Artist and Skater
He shares sound advice and insight during his NYC holiday.
Our industry operates like a well-oiled machine, moving at a consistent pace that stops for no one. In an effort to slow things down, our DIARIES series follows a subject through a normal day in their lives. We get to see firsthand into their routines and to share what they think and feel at an exact moment. For our inaugural episode, Palace skater Blondey McCoy spent the holidays in New York City with us.
The 20-year-old skater not only talks to us about what it’s been like to skate for Palace since the age of 14, but also recounts walking away from a freak taxi cab collision while filming Palasonic. Additionally, he talks about his interests beyond skating which include his personal brand Thames, a collaboration with Fred Perry, his jewelry project and his passion for art and music which can be seen in his “Us and Chem.” work and Burberry campaigns. Take a look above to learn more about Blondey and be on the lookout for fresh skate videos and product releases from Palace in the near future.
