    The Follow Up: Hjalte & Bobby

    Andrew Reynolds' "Made Chapter 2" B-Sides
    Drew was SOTY in 1998. Think about that for moment before you watch him absolutely crush it for the next 6 minutes. Whether it’s the fountain of youth or unrivaled drive, he’s still at the top of his game. We all know what he’s accomplished over the years, but seeing these high speed ledge lines in the B-Sides is so damn rad.
