A Day At The Orchid With Mr. Anderson

by Adam Levitt |

Andy Anderson takes his unique mix of old school and tech skating to The Orchid, a ranch on the outskirts of Santa Barbara, CA. Thanks to Webichodes for the video and description below: 

"The only way to describe this place is, when you are kid and you and your friends dream of a sanctuary where everyone works together to make amazing things happen and you get to sleep there too. Well i think i finally stumbled across it somehow. Big thanks to Mike Taylor and everyone else involved for all the hard work you have put in to make the Orchid what it has become. Also big thanks to my new friend George for hooking this all up and giving me the chance to document it. Also thanks to Andy Anderson for consistently ripping everyday and letting me be apart of that."

Cancer took John Leslie's leg when he was 10 years old. The following winter snowboarding changed his life. The Ottawa native is a snowboard Paralympian preparing to represent Canada in the 2018 games. This is his inspirational story, and this is his family.

“You told us we have no idea what we’re about to go face. But we’re going to do it as a family.” - John Leslie
