Guadalajara // Part 2

After 5 days spent in Mexico City, Mexico, the team hopped in the van and hit the road for a long drive to Guadalajara. Tired, sore, and sick with the bug from the water the team fought through it and killed every spot. Guadalajara was a breath of fresh air (literally.) Less smog and more openness than the city helped to get everyone’s head straight again. We went to the market every morning for fresh fruit and vegetables followed by a rad coffee shop inspired by skating and art. The cops threatened to kick us out of what seemed to be nearly every spot, but our tour guide and now close homie, Lenny, was able to ease the situation and coax them into letting the fellas skate most times. Everyone thinks traveling for skateboarding is just a vacation, and although skate trips can be a damn good time, these dudes do it for a living and test their physical limits for two weeks straight. It’s hard work and they push themselves harder than most people could imagine. Mexico proved to be exactly that. Keep an eye out for the article in The Skateboard Mag and edit dropping soon!



Mexico City // Part 1

The last time we rounded up the crew they took to the streets of Seattle on our Warped Speed tour producing some unforgettable stories and great skateboarding.  This time around with thought we would up the ante and go international – Straight into the heart of Mexico where the streets get busier, the smog stifles your breath, and the sun claims your skin by the end of your first session. A worthy adversary. But when you are fueled with a steady flow of cervesas and a daily dose of the the worlds finest taco’s, there’s really nothing you can’t handle. Add a last minute invite to Chris Haslam from the San Jose boys and it is bound to be a trip of a lifetime. Have a quick look at what the guys encountered on first week of their Mexican holiday. Looks like nothing short of good vibes. Stay tuned for more as the boys wrap up the second leg of the trip in Guadalajara and be on the look out for the full article in The Skateboard Mag!
