Episode 031 – Tim Leighton Boyce / @readanddestroy
My guest this week might not have the profile of some other @WeLookSideways alumni but to me he is equally important in the grand scheme of things.
During the 80s and 90s Tim was the main driving force behind the legendary R.A.D magazine, the much-loved UK skateboarding mag that did so much to support UK skateboarding and skate culture during a critical time in the scene’s development on these shores.
During its heyday, R.A.D was a window onto a world that at the time was a genuine subculture, and it’s really impossible to overstate its importance to a generation of UK board-riders. You can see this from the popularity of the @readanddestroy Instagram account which is doing a brilliant job of shining a light on this specific moment in skateboarding history.
I chatted to Tim about those years, about exactly how he created one of the UK’s most important and best loved skate mags and much more.

Episode 031 is now live! In this episode I spoke to legendary skate photographer and editor of R.A.D. magazine Tim Leighton Boyce.

You can see this from the popularity of The Read and Destroy Archive which is such doing a brilliant job of shining a light on this specific moment in skateboarding history.

At the end of November I headed up to London to pay homage to a man who had such an influence on myself and countless others.

* NEW DAILY LISTENER RECORD *
Anybody surprised that @thomasvictorcarroll just smashed my record for most listeners in a day? Thought not.
As I thought it might, my conversation with one of surfing’s greatest ever has been going down a storm, with listeners loving Tom’s honesty, passion and insights accrued from a lifetime of pushing the limits.
‘I don’t want to be the guy surfing a 100 foot wave. But I do want to get back to a level where I can push myself again’.
Here’s Tom in 2014 at Pipeline, a wave he knows as well as anybody.
