No matter how hard I try there is absolutely no combination of words to perfectly paint the skateboarding that transpired on the Bonzing Team camping trip almost a month ago. Combining the "who's" with the "what's" and "where's" in verbal format has a lot of power and is not to be taken for granted but in today's era we have become spoiled by video footage that perfectly depicts events that are now in the past. My goal in presenting the story of the 2015 Selah Skateboard Sabbatical was to take advantage of all the story telling tools that were at my disposal to paint an accurate portrait of all the events that transpired. I started off with using my words in the Written Recap and then offered a Photo Editorial to enhance the perception already created by each individuals imagination. The final phase is to bring those photographs to live via a moving picture show and lucky for us, the good folks at Bonzing just dropped an edit featuring footie from the recent camping trip! Video footie takes out any uncertainty of exactly how that road was skated or exactly how that drift went down making this video the perfect way to tie up my remittences of the recent tour. I now feel that you the skater finally has a clear idea of the skateboarding that was experienced as well as what it truly means to Bonz! Sit back and enjoy this mash up of footage from the Team Bonzing Camping Trip as well as some hammers being dropped by the only Bonzing team rider who was absent from the trip, Adrian DaKine, skating some terrain he found as he rode his motorcycle across the country.
Thank you for checking out and supporting this grass roots, community based project. It is my goal to present skateboarding at its core, being practice by the core of its community at a top notch level. Bonzing Skateboards is a company that is worth supporting and getting behind to help keep skateboarding in the hands of skaters. JAH Bless y'all and don't let the man tread on us, stand up for your right to skate!
I am a skater who lives in Baltimore, MD. I am looking to spread the love of skateboarding through both visual and written means.
