SEATTLE CITY MONTAGE ONE

PUBLISHED October 27, 2014

Skating in Seattle is not always easy. There are 200+ days of rain annually. This wet fact also means that Seattle boasts some of the roughest ground in America. Add the sea of security guards and skate stoppers that make up downtown and it can easily appear that the odds are against us. Good thing real street dogs know that no one or nothing short of a PD badge will stop us from getting a clip.

COMING NOVEMBER 3, 2014: SEATTLE NIGHT MONTAGE ONE

COMING NOVEMBER 3, 2014

When you’re in the center of a metropolis like Seattle, sometimes you have to wait till the sun goes down to hit the best spots in town. Weather it’s security, cars, the heat of the summer or your shitty job, the night can provide some much needed relief from the stresses of street skating during the day.

SANTIAGO DE CHILE MONTAGE – PATINAR EL DIA PART TWO

PUBLISHED June 12, 2014

One of the most interesting things about skating in Chile is the temperature drop.

The reason for this is the unique desert/mountain climate that the valley of Santiago creates.

SANTIAGO DE CHILE MONTAGE – PATINAR EL DIA PART ONE

PUBLISHED May 26, 2014

Santiago is a really big, small city. It’s big enough that you feel like you’re in a metropolis, but small enough to get around fairly quickly. There is good public transportation (bus, metro) and taxis are cheap as well if you have a group of guys. The security, on the other hand, can be a big problem. Every day, at least once, we got hassled by security.

SANTIAGO DE CHILE MONTAGE – PATINAR LA NOCHE

PUBLISHED May 8, 2014

Skating at night in Santiago is much different than the day. The center is virtually empty and all the business people have gone home for the night. There are still many guards, but it’s much easier to get stuff done once the sun has gone down.

SAN JOSÉ SKATE MONTAGE

PUBLISHED June 10, 2013

When it comes to filming in San José, the actual trick is usually the easiest part. First you have to dodge all the holes and cracks in the run up. If you make it past those, you than hope that the ground where you pop has not been eaten away from the torrential downpours that can happen almost instantaneously in the afternoons during certain parts of the year.
