Howard Cooke – Heroin Live From Antarctica (2005)
Working class hero.
Howard Cooke is the British equivalent of Heath Kirchart but with less attitude and more hard graft. The number of stories that circulated during the late Nineties and early 2000s about what Howard had landed or attempted to land were the lore that had evryone consider themselves not worthy.
Being based out of Britain, Howard managed to gain some international recognition riding for Consolidated but his best skating was always done on home turf. The last two tricks in his Live From Antarctica part for Heroin used as dictionary definitions of gnarly. Another trick in the trick thesaurus is a heelflip from one shaky make shift bank to another somewhere on the seafront in another video. Go hunt for that.
