Flashback – Soulful

A video flashback to 2002.  While I was attending Elon University in North Carolina I  dedicated a lot of time to both street skating and longboarding.  My bud Shayne Rivers and I would cruise around campus being creative on our planks of wood.  Shayne is rocking a homemade monster board, made from Baltic birch with my monster face artwork on it.  This was the board that the LBL Adam’s Old Skool dancer was inspired from.  I was rocking either a sector 9 48″ pintail or a homemade board of ours as well, I can’t tell.

Planning a SUP trip


I totally recommend this, and I think it is a great thing to do solo as well, such a peaceful time and a great way to be alone and in your thoughts. A full body work out as well. Only thing, SUP boards are not cheap.

Adam Colton, Paul Kent, and Aaron Enevoldsen teamed up in 2010 to revisit the pain, anguish and hilarity of traveling across countries with longboards. Morocco seemed to be a good choice as it is paved, culturally rich, and safe for tourists. They soon find out what the real struggle is… each other.

So put on your 3D goggles and pour yourself some mint tea, you might find out something new about Morocco!
