Phil Feeney (UK street video)

hi my names Phil Feeney

some people have considered my riding to be vandalism, i like to think of it more as art
heres a short 2min promo of myself my riding, which asks the question... Artist or Vandal?

Cheers Philly

Damaging private property is vandalism no matter how you cut it.

SO I've actually viewed the vid and seen not one iota of vandalism. Art? mmmm I don't know about art, that's pretty subjective. Having been a skater for 25 years I can totally enjoy using an urban centre's architecture as one's play ground. Nicely done. For a promo vid though I would suggest mixing the trick bag up. Nice spin to footplant, boy's got the skillz. Keep shreddin'.

That was amazing.

I woudln't call it vandalism... I'm not sure that even fits the definition of the word unless you're being destructive.

Awesome skills man.

Yeah, i can see how peg grinds, and similar could be considered vandalism, but really it is art.

Yeah, give credit where credit is due unless you wrote that song. The band are definitely artists.

Sweet video btw, as always...
