NAME: Laban Pheidias
LOCATION: Echo Park
Where do you like skating? Curbs, ditches, banks, hills, my backyard.
Why did you go Veg? I was born and raised vegetarian. I went vegan at around 16 when I met this punker dude who had all the dirty info on the dairy and egg industries.
What is your favorite thing to skate and why? This little teeny cement spine that Chris Lambert aka SLAM (another fellow vegan) made in my backyard. It’s only about a foot tall and a foot wide. But you can still manage quite a bit of tricks on it.
What shoe are you skating in now? Right now I’m skating in these hemp Ipath Reeds.
Or just say whatever you want about skating Veg… I’m spoiled living in LA with tons of vegan restaurants and tons of rad skate spots. But lately what I really enjoy is making a massive vegan stew with my 50 pound cauldron in my backyard and having a little skate jam!
————————————————————————————————————— Its a real honor to have Laban send in a Vegetable Shredder. He may be behind the camera these days, but the dude still rips and is bubblin’ up stews in the hills of LA! Brütal!
