James Curry

I’ve seen James Curry boss some pretty big street lines at the park. He rides with little fear and loves a unique grind combo. Unlike some kids who do it purely for fashion James’s four pegs brakeless setup matches his style perfectly.


Watch out for his first proper edit to drop over the coming months, it’s bound to ooze creativity.
