Without a doubt, 2016 was our heaviest year to date when it comes to organizing skate missions to the farthest reaching destinations around the globe. Throughout the year, we linked up with the most eclectic mix of skateboarders to create truly new experiences in unfamiliar lands with one goal in mind — uncover the promises of skateboarding the big wide world over.
The crews throughout the year consisted of talent both in-house and far beyond, making for some damn exciting sessions. Red Bull team members like Felipe Gustavo, Milton Martinez, Thaynan Costa, Alex Sorgente and TJ Rogers were joined by friends in the way of Pat Duffy, Sebo Walker, Chris Haslam, Walker Ryan, Jamie Tancowny, Marius Syvanen and more for one helluva year of globetrotting.
Of course, at each turn we were grateful for the superb skills of our friends in the cinematic arts who brought these trips to life — guys like Edu Munoz, Patrik Wallner, Seb Abes, Nick Richards, Jonathan Mehring and Kevin Metallier as well as our own fantastic Gaston Francisco and Sam McGuire. They deserve our utmost props here.
So, seeing as we had hardrives upon hardrives of worldly wizardy on deck, we asked the Spanish video maestro Dani Millan to round out the year, pulling together his favorite moments from our skate journey around the sun.
