Thursday Vidiot: Rigney, whoa!
We'll start this week's video roundup with my personal favorite of all the videos I've watched this week. Out of the blue, longtime ripper and current Arcade rider Casey Rigney dropped an amazing video part that stands out as one of the best NYC videos to come out of the city in the past year. Living here in New York, I've been to and skated many of the spots that Rigney tackles in his part but believe me when I tell you, no one skates them like this. Gnarly. Well done Mr. Rigney!
Next up Spanish sensation Daniel Lebron is welcomed to the Stacks team with this ill clip. If you didn't already know, Lebron is an amazing skater who has been around for days handling business and who also plays amazing flamenco guitar. It pays to be a man of many talents. Look for an exclusive interview with Lebron right here on ESPN Skateboarding in the next couple of days.
