Please enjoy our full-length homie video featuring this year’s Keep On Tuckin’, 2015 tour—it’s crusty, lo-fidelity, shaky, blown-out, low-budget, too-long, yet it’s a super fun-filled skateboarding video featuring our entire roadtrip from Long Beach, California all the way up to Summerland, B.C. Canada for this summer’s Maryhill Festival Of Speed & Gian’t Head Freeride events.
The idea behind this long-form homie video is to show you—in an honest way—who we are as skaters, a magazine, and thusly showcase the raw skateboarding that actually happened while on our trip via our crew and from the wide cast of characters we hung out with along the way in Santa Barbara, Santa Maria, Santa Cruz, San Fransisco, Mount Shasta, Portland, the wilds of Washington, and Canada (stay tuned for Print Edition: Issue Four) too.
Sometimes the telling of a tale doesn’t reflect the reality of the adventure, but we believe that in this case our crustable skate-movie does in-fact achieve our goal. We skated all sorts of roads and spots and parks. We camped and drove and drove and drove some more.
We arrived back home filthy a couple weeks later, threadbare, and a little “different” than when we left. But that was the plan all along. The reward is in the doing as they say.
