Sam Giles is gnarly… It would be easy to just leave it at that.

From the tricks, the slams, a bit of MMA fighting for shits and giggles, right through to recent surgery in an effort to relieve him of a life-time of chronic pain. It was a no brainer that this ever resilient human was the perfect candidate for our second instalment of Highs and Lows.

“THAT OLLIE INTO THE SHODDY ‘BANK’ WAS NOTHING SHORT OF HORRIFYING TO WITNESS… NoT ONE PERSON IN ATTENDANCE LEFT THE SCENE THAT DAY WITHOUT AT LEAST A MINOR CASE OF BROWN PANT.”
