"There was a party in London underneath the Southbank Pier. These kids starting doing back flips and tricks off brick steps and metal railings. It was obvious that this guy was the leader of the gang. The younger generation of jumpers constantly surrounded him, asking for his advice on their previous jump. He never fought for his turn, never begged for space, and always jumped first after breaks. If he wasn't jumping he was tagging the steps or walls behind him. He treated the air as his territory and the crowd of dancers as his audience."
