The Skating culture continues to grow in Jamaica, but we need to set up some greater facilities to further nurture it. Recently, Filmmaker Tamara Smith a.k.a. “Taqueth” reached out to Skater James Lawrence a.k.a. “EDGE” to tell his story in a new Short Film! Hailing from Edgecombe Avenue in St. Ann, “EDGE” shares his journey from skating in the gully with visions of pursuing his dream, to getting his first pair of skates, and even a bumpy journey home on skates. While Taqueth captured scenes with EDGE doing tricks, we even hear him deejaying a bit in the end.
EDGE has been moving on up to being a Professional Skater “living life on the edge“, and has even performed at the Jamaican Independence Grand Gala, and represented as a qualifier at the World Skating Championships. He has been holding his own as a Recording Artist (formerly going by the stage name “Edgecombe”) as well having performed at New Wave and a few events at the University of the West Indies (UWI).
