Nick Matthews proves that you don’t have to live on one of the coasts to get good at skateboarding. He hails from a small town in Illinois, and did a stint in L.A. and Long Beach after high school. Not feeling the vibe, Nick headed back to Chicago after a couple of years, and continued to perfect his craft. His new part dropped via Thrasher today; and it’s impressive to say the least. Nick is currently getting flow from Quasi and adidas. Based on this footage, we’ll likely be seeing more from him in the future.
