Check this British street slayer defy Brexit and get busy on an insane array of spots across Europe. Will’s part from Postland Theory’s latest movie, Loose, is straight banging…
This young goofy footer grew up in the north of England and, like many riders of his generation and location, he cut his teeth on the mild inclines of the Halifax dryslope Castelford’s indoor setup. The scene there back then was thriving, and it wasn’t long before Will had caught the attention of local filmer Jamie Durham, Grindhouse, who started documenting a slice of the British scene domestically before looking further afield for spots.
The debut Grindhouse movie, Scare Money, was the first British production to have trained its eye exclusively on street spots and a fresh-faced Smith snagged the opener. From there he’d film a succession of Grindhouse parts, while also linking up with emerging Euro crew Postland Theory. From there he’d film for both productions for a couple of seasons, before focussing his efforts on Postland – who he’s still shooting with to this day, the part above from Loose being his most recent.
In addittion to this Will’s seen his efforts rewarded by cementing spots on both the Vans and Salomon Euro teams, both of whom have also helped throw some more shine on the dude’s riding. Vans have made him a part of all of their First Layer projects, the most recent to Russia is certainly worth checking for more of Smith’s unique urban shred style (the book they produced to complement the edit also featured a bunch of Will’s rad illustrations, too), while for a more funboarding approach you should check Salomon’s new Euro spring session in Laax that just dropped.
But this part right here is all Will – Ok, with the exception of longtime wingman Ollie Dutton getting a couple of cameo shots – and shows Will’s keen eye for a unique approach to a spot, and for taking said spot to pieces, supremely. And edited together perfectly by Postland honcho Tim Schiphorst. Sit back and enjoy!
