    VLT 2015: 2 weeks in tropical islands of the Philippines!

    April has come! It means VLT!! Time for island vibes and 2 weeks full of shakas greetings everywhere!

    VLT is a 2 weeks+ long skateboard event and the biggest longboard event in Asia for sure. It all happens in the Visayas area in the Philippines and is divided into 3 main parts. VLT (Visayan Longboard Trilogy) includes traveling, skating, camping, hammocks, ferries, parties, mangos and coconuts, beautiful beaches, waterfalls, hopping from island to island with hundreds of skaters from all around the world. It all started some 6 years ago by a group of local skaters of Cebu in order to find new spots to skate while traveling and discovering the beauty of the nature which those islands have to offer.

    So You Think You Can Longboard Dance: Growth and Development

    I had seen pictures, heard stories of a grandiose flatland / freestyle competition in the Netherlands that happened every year. An event that attracted all the various odds and ends of the European long skate spectrum. Competitors venturing from far and wide to showcase their style’s in an arena, in front of an audience specifically focused on appreciating the countless intricacies of the discipline. 

    Waking up and suddenly realizing you're in Amsterdam... Priceless.

    Downhill Skateboarding: Mindset and Meditation

    Let there be no doubt that the act of stepping aboard a small piece of wood, only to surf it down a mountain at 45, 50 miles per hour is serious business. Life threatening, to some extent. It’s a mental thing. The noise of your everyday existence, your cares, your worries, all seem to dissipate amongst the thundering sound of the wind licking at your ears. To some extent, I believe downhill skateboarding to be a form of meditation. An act that brings about an extreme sense of present moment. When you’re bombing down a mountain, navigating corners, achieving terminal velocity, you willfully welcome a sense of hyper focus. Nothing else matters: just you, the skateboard, and the road.

    Trevor is faster than you.

    Get Set For The Jet Set

    My worst air travel baggage nightmare occurred when I flew the last available flight of the evening from London to Paris, and had a connecting trans-atlantic flight back to Los Angeles from Paris the following morning. I had a late evening in Paris to kill with the homies before flying back to LA, so I thought, “no problem”, I’ll just collect my bags and meet them at whatever bar they had happened to be at that night. Fast forward to me being the lone standing person at the baggage claim at Charles du Gaulle airport at 12am. After waking the two half asleep clerks in the missing baggage department, they determined that they could not locate my bag, and that I would have to remain on “Standby” (that’s airport lingo for, “good luck” in case you already didn’t know) at the airport, just in case my bags arrived. I spent the night in Paris CDG airport that evening with nothing more than an airline provided plastic toothbrush (that looked as though it was surplus gear they had intended to originally send to Prisons), and a generic white T-shirt they give you as a kind of, “sorry bruh, bad time”. In the morning, I caught my sixteen hour flight back to Los Angeles, not knowing if I’d ever see my things again.

    Stoked Skateboards knowledge base article link - 6 tips when traveling with a skateboard

    A week and about a dozen calls to the airline later, and a man in a truck delivers my bag claiming it had been lost because its odd size (due to skateboards) exceeded certain size restriction policies, and it had to be re-routed.

    Stokowski, ready to fly the friendly skies.

    The bottom line? Air travel will always be a ridiculous process we willfully put ourselves through. There is a system of mass transit to the whole situation that will always be the way it is, regardless as to how well you prepare. Alas, there are a few things you can do to streamline the process a bit, and side step some of the pitfalls of the air travel equation. With that being said, I’ve taken the liberty to prepare an article for the good folks at the Stoked Skateboards Knowledge Base, detailing six essential tips to ensuring your priceless shred sled, and your belongings make it to your destination on time and safe n’ sound. Check it out, then get to the globe trottin’.

    The King Of Kona Experience

    Amidst the ever abundant kaleidoscope-like assortment of larger annual skateboarding related events that you could potentially attend in a calendar year, one soiree in particular has, in just three years time, established quite the raucous name for itself amongst our humble shred-o-sphere. The event I’m on about specifically is the absolutely face melting 72-hour, non-stop skateboarding bash known world wide as the King Of Kona. The brainchild of a one Cameron Frazier and situated in the Southern most state of Florida, the event itself is held at the long fabled Kona skatepark, the oldest still operational skatepark in the United States (est. 1977). From pools and ramps, to snake runs and half pipes, the Kona skatepark compound incorporates a joyous plethora of new and vintage style skate features that caters to a myriad of different styles and skill levels. Alas, don’t be fooled into thinking that just because the park is just shy of 40 years old, it has the same kind of matured mentality behind it. The King Of Kona jamboree or “KOK” as it is most commonly referred to, is without a doubt the single most outrageous skate event I’ve ever attended.

    "Good morning campers."

    Haven's Gate 2014: Riders Recap

    Skating in the Philippines is a unique experience. It's unlike anywhere else. The people who have visited will understand when I say it's fast, intense, and one of the most underrated skate spots in the world. This is why I was super stoked to head back the nation of mangos and waterfalls for Havens Gate 2014.  Situated around 2 hours out of Manila, high up in the mountain, the new Havens Gate track was hectic. Steep, fast, and very bumpy.
