This skater couldn't just catch a break on the Late Late last night

Slippery floors in that studio.

THE LATE LATE Show played host to a range of SMEs last night. One of which, was Grasshopper skateboards, a skateboard manufacturer based in Ballybunion. The boards are made with new and sustainable material which means that they can biodegrade after their useful life.

On hand to demonstrate the boards in action were two of Ireland’s best skateboarders, but one just couldn’t get into his groove.

Excellent recoveries though.




But don’t worry, he got into the swing of things


People were concerned though

The skater in question actually IS one of Ireland’s best skaters, and his name is Gav Coughlan. Here he is in action.

He explained the falls on Instagram:

I know I missed a back 180 and a tre. Board was a 7.75 and about 3 inches shorter than a normal board. Paro.
So now. Back in your box.
