"Be Free" Premiere Photos
Ishod Wair and Kyle Walker started off the new decade with a doubles part called BE FREE. A REAL skateboards video, and you’re in for a real treat when you see what they put together for this one. The DLXSF crew came down to Bradford’s Studio in Long Beach on Saturday night for the premiere where a heavy posse was already congregated. Tommy Guerrero, Ray Barbee and John Cardiel (aka DJ Juan Love) provided the tunes and there was a photo show featuring works by Gabe Morford and Alex Papke, documenting the trips in the video. To top it off, Pizzanista came through with the pie slices. It got so packed, not everybody got in and the cops tried to shut it down. That’s when you know it’s a good time! —Morgan Rindengan

1/09/2020Ishod and Kyle have done a lot of miles together and somewhere along the way the idea to share a video project became a reality. From the first trips to the final cuts, they ran it and made it happen. Traveling, skating and filming with your friends—that’s the way it’s supposed to be. Be Free, indeed.
