It happened that I skated with Aiden Chamberlain once before at a spot with rails set against a white-brick building. We skated those for a while until someone decided that we’d check out a hulking rail that was just across the street. Only two of the group of about eight had the guts to huck themselves down the green, daunting monster. One of those kids was Mr. Chamberlain. We all stood in awe as Chamberlain stuck a backside boardslide in under five tries. Since then, Chamberlain Chamberlain has dropped a part well worth serious attention. Just before I interviewed Chamberlain, I watched his part from the video, Shit House, and I could hardly believe that he was only 16 years old. When I stopped reeling from getting hit in the head by the torrent of hammers, SLUG was able to sit down and chat with him on top of a quarter pipe in the Crossroads park.
Chamberlain: Like, three years now. This guy, Josh, the old manager here—I gave him a video and he just put me on the team.
