British Pro Skater Paul Shier stars in FUEL TV’s signature 30-minute series “Firsthand.” England has a certain way of producing charismatic artists and athletes and Paul Shier is certainly an example of this cultural phenomenon. To kick off his “Firsthand,” Paul revisits his favorite childhood skate spot Fairfield Halls and much to his disappointment, finds it in a state of disrepair. After a valiant attempt at skating this now defunct spot and a stroll down memory lane of some of his classic footage, he heads to Los Angeles, California for the premier of the new Blueprint Skateboards video. It’s the first time that the UK-based Blueprint has premiered a video in the U.S. and Paul, who stars in the video, is also responsible for setting it up and making sure it runs smoothly.

While in LA, Paul also attends the first-ever DVS photo shoot featuring its entire worldwide team. Close friend, and fellow DVS and Blueprint team rider Mark Baines challenges Paul to a not-so-friendly tennis match. After the match, Paul and DVS pros Daniel Castillo and Torey Pudwill take a quick tour of two newly opened Los Angeles public skate plazas. Paul then joins Clint Peterson on a skate mission to the inland suburb of Riverside. Things take a turn for the comical when Paul ends up skating (and slamming on) the longest ledge he’s ever set eyes upon.

Finally, Paul travels back to Europe for the 2010 DVS Copenhagen Pro contest with an assortment of DVS pros, who spend a week street skating and partaking in pre-contest festivities. After watching kids jump down mountainous sets of stairs and hurdle through rings of fire, Paul and the rest enter the contest. Never one to take things too serious, Paul’s colorful commentary and easy going nature reminds you that skateboarding, while most definitely a job for him, is still simply about enjoying your surroundings and spending time with your friends.

Paul Shier’s sponsors include: Blueprint, DVS, Insight, Diamond, Broadcast, The Armory.
