Vice Magazine have been documenting some of skateboarding’s finest in their Epicly Later’d series for some time now and who could be more interesting than Ali Boulala. As far as skateboarding goes Ali Boulala has had a huge impact on skateboarding since the early 90s to this very day. Some of you will probably recognize him from his early Flip video parts launching himself down the biggest sets known to man. Pioneering the PD ‘Piss Drunxs’ antics and leading the wild lifestyle we would associate with the yet familiar crew.
