Fancy Lad‘s Is This Skateboarding video, “contemplates the innocence and creativity left in the sport that is losing its genuine quality to posers and popular media.”

The ‘Lads’ have one of the best crew names in skateboarding and also seem to be having more fun than anyone. Just check out their fancy Instagram. Get Born Magazine always come with the dope interviews like this one they did with lord of the underground Josh Stewart. This time they sat down with a lad to try to find out how and why they do what they do…

Why did you choose the title ‘Is This Skateboarding’ for your latest film? With the different ways of riding that you guys invent, and sporadic moves based on the bounce of the board, it seems like you’ve created something new because you are bored of other skateboard videos out there today…

It is an attempt to reinvent the wheel. Skateboard videos are pretty set in their ways. They have a formula and stick to it. This is probably the most traditional FL video to date, but it still seems miles away from anything else that is going on. It is supposed to showcase our deviation. 

“The fact that people have to question the validity of creativity is strange to me.”
