Without a doubt, 2016 was our heaviest year to date of organising skate missions to the craziest destinations around the globe. Never knowingly liable to play it safe, we linked up with the most eclectic mix of skateboarders to create totally new experiences to get you sparked on the promises of skateboarding and the big wide world.
Madars Apse, Marius Syvanen, Felipe Gustavo, Pat Duffy, Milton Martinez, Tyler Surrey, Vladik Scholz, Josef Scott, Thaynan Costa, Brad McClain, Maxim Kruglov, Sebo Walker, Alessandro Sorgente, Jamie Tancowny, Barney Page, Chris Haslam, TJ Rogers, Nestor Judkins, Axel Cruysberghs, Willy Akers, Philipp Schuster, Walker Ryan and many more jumped in the van marked ‘Forward’ as we set off to put new licks on the planet in hand-picked session squadrons headed to pretty much everywhere an ollie could be popped.
Of course, at each turn we were grateful for the superb skills of our friends in the visual arts who brought these stories to life such as Edu Munoz, Patrik Wallner, Seb Abes, Nick Richards, Jonathan Mehring, Kevin Metallier as well as our own fantastic Gaston Francisco and Sam McGuire. They deserve our props here.
Skateboarding is the best thing ever, so we asked the justifiably rated Spanish video maestro Dani Millan to round out the year and pull together his favourite moments from our skate journey around the sun.
