The history books will tell you how much of a legend Ali Boulala is in skateboarding. Despite his fight with all sorts of vice’s he will go down in history as one of the best skateboarders to ever grace the scene. Today, Vice have Epicly Later’d his incredible life story across 4 episodes. It’s heavy stuff, as you’d expect. Heartfelt, bonkers and every other adjective in between. Get those teas on.
We have interviewed Ali twice over the years. The first in 2005, the second in 2006. Discover them, re-read them – there’s only one Ali Boulala.
August’s epic Vans Downtown Showdown in London’s Spitalfields market attracted thousands and also welcomed various Vans pro’s on the day too. In the melee over East, we bumped into Baker Skateboards’ Australian ripper, Dustin Dollin and sat down for a quick chat about his skateboarding life.
Dustin is one of skateboarding’s most animated characters and also backs it up with some of the best skating out there, so it was a pleasure to share a beer and shoot the shit with him in a noisy bar.. This is the second part in a 3 part series from the Showdown (part one is here). Get a beer on the go, click play and find out more about the Mayor of the Piss Drunx.
