"From Here to There" LA Premiere Photos

About a decade ago, I picked up Robbie Brockel from his parents’ house. He had just graduated from high school the day before and we were hitting the road. First stop: Denver, CO, for Angel Ramirez’s 21st birthday. Well, 18-year-old Robbie showed up prepared with a drivers license that said he was 35! Somehow it worked—and not just that weekend, but all summer and beyond. Last night he told me he ran it up ’til he was 21 and never got denied. I guess Robbie has always been mature for his age. Last night at Black, Thrasher and Real skateboards premiered From Here to There, a video filmed and edited by Tim Fulton, featuring Robbie Brockel, Chima Ferguson and the rest of the Real team. Check out who showed up to party and then go watch the video on this very site. Skateboarding rules. So do Robbie and Chima. —Joe Hammeke

    Ishod 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.
