Slam City Skates team rider Casper Brooker is out there killing it on a regular basis. He recently returned from a UK Emerica tour where he more than held his own with the big lads. Whispers of "Did you hear what Casper did yesterday" weigh heavy on the grapevine. Him and recent Slam staff acquisition Dan Kreitem have been working on this edit. Here's a look at what he's been up to at his favourite spot...
