The thing that always bothered me about “Day In The Life” sections is how they looked so planned and scripted. Like the camera guy comes in and “wakes the skater up,” they visit a couple of cool spots, “accidentally” bump into all their homies, crack a beer, and fade to black.
So naturally (stupidly) for this segment, we did the total opposite. We met up with Mark at LES let him warm up with 1-minute long lines at the park. Then we hit Pyramid Ledges to watch him get a clip and learn about his method for coming up with new-new ledge combos. From there we wandered around going book shopping, skating people’s stoops, and seeing the gears turn in the mind of a thinking skater’s skater.
Mark doesn’t often show off his non-skating side, even on social media, so this is a rare look into the personality of one of today’s most prolific skaters. Check out the video above and get to know Mark a little better yourself.
