James Wright Day in the life

2 Apr


Day in the LIFE Filmed by Leigh Bolton.

From http://skateboarding.com.au

Lincoln Square line and trick, first line James filmed after car accident. Switch blunt first try first attempt.

Filmed by Shane Fowler





James Wright is a boss.  Been ruling it here in Melbourne, and back home in NZ for years.Nearly died when hit by a car on the way home one night, shot the photo above in Christchurch CBD first skate back after recovering from being in a coma.

Had a fair time off board with a recurring knee injury and was localizing places like the legendary Blue Tile Lounge and 99 Problems,  but has been blazing since he got back on board again.

Spending time in equal measure at the Peel st squat, skating the streets of Melbourne or most likely otherwise at the Fitzy bowl, this new video edit shows it all. May contain traces of  Morph and Prawny and definitely large dollops of the squat. (Both meanings) Raw skating and funny as hell.  Take a look.

Jimmy skates for Palace skateboards and Adidas shoes and Lolife skate shop. Recently filmed for an Adidas video in Adelaide. Hope the ankle’s getting better mate.
