Laurie Sherman Skateboarding 1996 to 2002

Now here’s a treat coming from the archived tapes of Jake Barker from yesteryear featuring our good pal Laurie Sherman. If you knew this man then you’d know that he gives everything and is one of the best pals to have in the back of the car on a trip. His laid back approach to life is slightly different to when he steps on a rig as you will see from this footage shot between 1996 and 2002.

Still got it too. Good work Jake.
