Throwback Thursday – Chris Dahl Sliding in North Van
If you were into downhill slide longboarding in 2007, this was the hottest video you’d ever seen. Chris Dahl brought a degree of style and flow to tech sliding that hadn’t been seen before and was often imitated afterward. The clip at fourteen seconds in is responsible for destroying at least five of my shoelaces and 2 pairs of knee pads. Pad-down slides aren’t in fashion any more, but this video is still crucial to your understanding of longboarding history.
