Fairly Normal: Collin Provost Episode 016

10.26.14 – TAGS: , ,
Video: Michael Cukr and Blake Myers

Ed Templeton doesn’t just put you on Toy Machine. It is a thoughtful, and altogether meaningful move for one’s career when Ed makes that move and supports your placement on the team. Collin Provost is the kind of skater though who — hailing from Ed’s hometown of HB — makes Ed’s job easy. With a throwback, very committed, very authentic approach to skateboarding, Collin reminds one what skateboarding is about. His parts in Stay Gold and more recently in Emerica’s Made have proven that.

We drove up to Collin’s place in Long Beach for a skate, music, and a beer to immerse ourselves in his world. A few lines at North Park and a sunset jam with the boys. As he quickly emerges as one of the raddest skaters in the world.

Fairly Normal Luke Davis What Youth

Fairly Normal: Luke Davis Episode 010

It may not translate to results on the WQS, but there aren’t many people we’d rather watch high-line and arc. He’s the kind of surfer who could never do another air and we’d still enjoy every nuance of his style.

He has one of those styles rooted in unpredictability and recklessness, hucking himself at sections, but doing it with flow (a la young Dane Reynolds)

Austyn Gillette Fairly Normal What Youth

Fairly Normal: Austyn Gillette Episode 007

A lethal combination of style, technical prowess and the most precise bit of fuck-it, all baked in to produce what has become the new elite in modern skateboarding.

“Waiting in line at an amusement park is like going through the airport TSA line 20 times to go on a variety of 20 second plane rides.”

Fairly Normal: Chippa Wilson Episode 005

You’ll see us eat some nachos and get to the bottom of why skaters think we’re pussies, then spontaneously hop a plane to a lonely desert

Fairly Normal: Jack Freestone Episode 004

The perfect day with Jack Freestone: a coffee, shit-talking, a fun surf at D-Bah, lunch, shit-talking resumes, another really fun surf at Kirra, a beer on the veranda, barbecue. Fin!

We called Ben and asked for a glimpse at what his interpretation of domesticity looks like living as a professional skateboarder in the shadow of both The Roosevelt Hotel and Hollywood High
