Dennis Durrant is truly an impeccable skateboarder. Anyone who has seen him first hand (or on film) will know that he not only has the knack for tech feats, but he skates with a power and speed that only a few greats can maintain. And yes, there has been a recurring debate around why he is or isn’t pro. And this isn’t going to be another interview regarding that. But to set the record straight: it clearly isn’t because of his ability or attitude. There is no doubt that many top pros would yearn for the technique that Dennis possesses. It seems that Dennis could have been pro for pretty much anyone if he could have been arsed with the networking and being surrounded by the people who he would never naturally be friends with. After all, sadly this is sometimes what it takes to excel in the professional realm of any given field. Instead of spending time making the “right” career moves and coming up with a dank, yet catchy nickname, Dennis has been out there shredding and documenting with his mates, who are all equally progressive. Recently due to sponsorship changes and expiration of his visa he has relocated from Southern California to Brisbane. He has recently been picked up by the Adidas International program and has been filming a welcome clip for the formal announcement. We were lucky enough to get this glimpse of what is to come and catch up with Dennis to see how it is all traveling. - Morgan Campbell
