jaws_lyon_25_stair_aaron_homoki_thrasher_magazine

Hats off to Thrasher for setting this up, this is the biggest feat that skateboarding has seen in years. Aaron Homoki finally conquered the Lyon 25 set and the footage, the build up, the end product, the joy, is so well captured by French Fred, Mike Gilbert, Mike and Kevin Burnett with Ali Boulala there for obvious reasons.

Well done Jaws, you mental bastard.
