The name Dan Boiski and the image of London street riding go hand-in-hand. For me, he defines that street identity – always out searching for spots, riding any rails, banks and wallrides he finds, and usually documenting it in some way.
I’ve been part of that documentation process countless times in the seven years I’ve known Boiski. From spending six months shooting his Ride UK print interview to casually helping with iPhone clips and everything in between, it’s always been legit – done simply for the sake of following a passion.
This time round was no different. Boiski had Peter Adam staying for a week following the Still United premiere, with the aim of shooting a video with United teammate Jeff Kocsis. Unfortunately, the poor state of Jeff’s passport didn’t allow him to leave the USA so it was down to Boiski to provide all the riding – no pressure then.
When we started the project and I imported the first photos to my computer, I laughed, wondering how many times previously I’d created folders and named them ‘Boiski London’. Yes, it’s the same story again but it doesn’t get old. Dan Boiski nailing it on the streets of London does not get old.
