The Fallen Demo at Brotherhood



"That one hour of skating," Brian Henderson smiles, "people will be talking about in this town for years."

Henderson still seems slightly dazed, sitting across from me, trying to recall the previous day's events. This much he can recall: He and the rest of the crew at Brotherhood Board Shop spent hours building a street course behind the shop—a stairset, some ramps, some rails. The Fallen team showed up, exhausted from morning sessions down at Third & Army in the City. After an hour or so of signing autographs, Henderson says, "they got on the bullhorn and said, 'Yeah, we're hella tired, we're just gonna roll around a little bit.'"

The rest? It's a blur.

That's what happens when you invite Jamie Thomas, Chris Cole, Josh Harmony, Gilbert Crockett and Tommy Sandoval to town. Jamie Thomas is crazy enough, but Crockett's backside nose grind nollie-kickflip? Unreal.

Luckily, Niko Robinson was on hand to capture some of the action. Make sure to check out some of the locals at the beginning—Chris Joya is insane here, along with Austin Funk, Stephan Carlin, Toan Gilmore, Kyle Rexworth and Pat Gould. Definitely a day to remember.
