Loaded Boards has released a new edit in celebration of their newest deck “The Overland”. The crew rolled deep into the Californian sticks to capture a good ol’ fashioned weekend with the bros. Ethan Cochard, Daniel Fissmer, Nic Escamilla, and Adam Stokowski all got some time on board while obtaining the radness.

The road through the Owens Valley is a long, familiar, well-traveled ribbon of asphalt creating a boundary between the Sierra Nevada Mountains on the West and the White Mountains to the East. We have been warping between Mammoth Lakes and Los Angeles along this path many weekends a year for many years. On a good day one can make this trek in five hours. We decided to take five days.
With a slew of new Overland boards in the back and a great group of riders jammed in the van we took the 14 to the 395 and all it’s paved tributaries into the Sierra. We stopped when we wanted, pulled over where most blast by in their SUV’s and skated Ghost Towns, rural parks, steep-steeps and boulder laden hills.
The Overland is a fun skateboard. This journey was a fun trip. All too often on these skate-shoots you get tunnel vision, focused only on the end result. We didn’t stress on the skating or nailing the shot. We took our time to enjoy the landscape and everything it had to offer. We stayed in the moment. That’s what it is all about. That’s why we all do this in the first place.
