Creature pro David Gravette sits down with Transworld Skateboarding to tell the story behind his most recent TWS cover. From a 13 hour drive to less than perfect conditions, this ways no ordinary photo shoot. Did we mention he was trying a backflip?
Wheter you first saw him in Mad Circle’s “5 Flavors” or LRG’s “Give Me My Money Chico”, I bet Karl Watson’s skating left and impression on you. From his smooth, fluid style, to his spine twisting combos, Karl holds it down. After recently being let go from long time shoe sponsor I-Path, Watson has found a new home at Praxis Footwear. Watch their official welcome clip here, then head over to Poweredge Magazine for an interview with the man himself and get the story behind this rising shoe company.
