Just days ago we learned that Benny Fairfax amicably split with sponsor Stereo and after seeing his impressive appearance in the adidas Skate NY video we knew it wouldn’t be long before got scooped up by another team.
What we didn’t know was that it would be almost immediate. Cue the Benny Fairfax / Palace talk. Late last night there was some activity on Instagram from Palace Wayward Boys’ Choir hinting at the possibility of Fairfax joining the “most elusive team in skateboarding.” Along with the picture above, Palace commented:
The move makes sense given the fact that both parties hail from London. Also, from a style standpoint, Fairfax will be a great addition to the team of raw street skaters that includes Lucien Clarke, Shawn Powers, Olly Todd, Chewy Cannon, Charlie Young, and Rory Milanes.
We’re sure you’ll be seeing VHS quality footage of Fairfax in the future and for now you can check out some of our favorite Benny Fairfax clips below.
