Legendary skateboarder, John Cardiel may ride a fixie, but he's way gnarlier and stylish than any of us can ever hope to be. All hail...

    Crashing is not stylish.

    Subtle at 1:17. Just watched his documentary. That guy is the real deal. More life in him than a hundred of us.

    just imagine how sick Cards would be if he rode a proper bicycle. somebody should flow him a slopestyle bike and put him to work in the Whistler bike park...maybe then he wouldn't be crashing all over the damn place on that fixie.

    Ive skated with him at old Santa Rosa skatepark and in the streets of SF back in the day. Good to see he is just as much of a maniac on a bike. Even if it is a fixie. Finally a company that gets it and puts out a entertaining Web Ad that matches the rider and market.
