The Road To Portland

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
