TAKING IT NORTH
Words & photos: Hammeke

Made a trip up to Portland with Johnny Layton to shoot some photos


Mumford heard about it, so these guys showed up to cruise with us. They really know how to relax


Fifteen miles in three hours


Because someone threw a smoke out the window


Due to the delay we only made it to Fresno, instead of Sacto


Blue dog checks the transitions


Called up Peacock and he had this gem waiting for us


For never skating a pool before, the street crew was doing alright








Bartie even buckets pools cowboy-stance


Yaje, psyched to skate some street


Oh no—the dog pissed on the sandwiches


Set up some new "toys"

Dreaming of weed


Besides being a ripping skater, Mumford is one of the best camp chefs




Daniel Lutheran was seriously considering not getting a tent. Here he is, stoked that he did


Camp toaster? Mumford's got it all


Blue dog no hablo espanol


Who made this?


Bartie is ready for the outback


The view we came for


Aw, Crikey, there are snakes in the bush!


Cody is trying to save money so he can make it on a filmer's wages: 10 pounds of potatoes, of which eight pounds fell in the fire


Coos Bay, Oregon is gnarly


Bartie learning the local handshakes


Dusting off the ol' shred stick


Complete with Bonite and 65mm wheels


Back to back Bartie


Daniel Lutheran skates in swimtrunks sometimes


Cody used the cornholio tech to prevent sunburn




Rail jumper


My old roomate and his son


The Salem park is pretty busted up


Here are a couple reasons why


Toy Machine exit real world collabo


Four guys in an SUV and barely enough room for gear


Everyone loves weed


Johnny opted for a bag of GG dogs

  • Masher: V

    Masher: V
    These Masher edits are about more than the skating in front of the lens, they’re also about the man holding the camera and blazing through the bowls at mach speed. Hell yeah, Gregson!

  • Character Study: The skate art of ModernCholo

    Character Study: The skate art of ModernCholo
    It's obvious where Anthony "ModernCholo" Cardenas finds his influences. He takes both well-known and obscure animated characters and collides them straight into the world of skateboard photography. The result he creates is a pretty cool place to visit.

    Used to be that when people spoke of Hollywood High they were referring to the smaller rail. Geoff helped change that. This fs slider was groundbreaking stuff. 
  • My War: Gabriel Summers

    My War: Gabriel Summers
    Gabbers engaged in an epic battle with this rail, and you’ll have to watch this edit to appreciate the gruesome nature of the confrontation. Skateboarding can truly push you to your absolute limits, both mentally and physically. Wow...

    Mark Humienik and Nick Ferro's "Calzone" Part
    Smooth styles laced with impeccable trick selections at sweet-looking spots—you can't go wrong. Mark and Nick deliver the goods.

    Atlantic Drift - Episode 6 - San Francisco
    The Drifters departed the familiar waters of the Atlantic, finding themselves staring down the Pacific from the hilltops of San Francisco. Cheers to another epic chapter from the crew you know and love.
  • Fatback: New Balance Blessed in the Midwest

    Fatback: New Balance Blessed in the Midwest
    Capturing the good times, the shenanigans and plenty of shredding, there’s no coverage quite like Fatback coverage. The New Balance crew stacked plenty of serious footage, but watching them mess around is loads of fun. Enjoy...

    No better way to break in the new spot than to get all the homies out and have a party with a taco truck, cold beers and a skate sesh.
