If you’ve been reading for a while, you know we’ve been backing Fancy Lad skateboards since we were a scrappy lil’ blog. Whenever Fancy Lad releases some video-ized content, it elicits a slew of emotions: confusion, child-like glee, anger, arousal, and inspiration. We’re huge fans of the stunts — like a one man full-length video — and antics — like Frankenstein-ing boards — from skateboarding’s weirdest family, and we’re pretty proud to bring back Matt Tomasello for another part to permanently scar skateboarding.
Matt already scarred skateboarders with his last Fancy Lad part, but this time he came back with even more bootleg board contraptions and deranged tricks to permanently ruin the activity altogether.
WARNING: If you like “core” ass, “real deal” skateboarding, this part is 98% not for you.
