3 SPOTS WITH ANDREW BROPHY

Melbournians celebrated the return of Andrew Brophy earlier this year. Andrew and his family came back to the city after a four-year hiatus. After prolonged stints in Noosa and LA he has blended right back in seamlessly. Well, as seamlessly as one can blend when one stands out a mile off due to one’s mastery of gravity. We were honoured when Brophy eagerly took to the Three Spots mission in the midst of winter. With the help of Leigh Bolton and James James, Andrew was documented hitting up the raw-mixed shapes of Rezy, the new St Kilda Road ledges and his old local Prahran Skatepark. For a guy who his well known for his levitating techniques, it is nice to be reminded just how stylish he is on the board. It is with great pleasure that we present one of the world’s finest, power snappin’ skate rats: Andrew Brophy and his choice of Three Spots.
