A Bag Full of Tricks: Unpacking Nike SB's Newest Flick
I’ve always wished that the progression of skateboarding would reach a point where it’s normal to be different. Just let a skater be a skater. So to be in a van full of rippers who are each in their own way norm breaking and just genuinely great people has been such a blast. There’s been a special hype on these past trips. We’ve had Ant Travis as our main camera man working on this new video project for Nike SB. The seed was planted in Malmö/Copenhagen in June of last year, and our wishes came true, leading to trips to the Pacific Northwest, Australia, Atlanta and LA. Don’t be careful what you wish for! Each trip came with new additions to the crew, and whether it’s new or familiar faces, this article will give you a sneak peek into all of our suitcases.
