The Magenta Skateboards affiliated crew, Mandible, with it’s location themed clips, represents skateboarding in it’s most anti-authoritarian, don’t-give-a-fuck-about-you, aspect. Far from the clean and smooth videos we’re kind of used nowadays, this shit is straight up gnarly. The “Kids wallriding trains and gapping platforms” kind of gnarly, you know.. Check out Tengu: God of Mischief’s Subway…
