Because we have to It’s in our blood. It’s in our DNA Skateboarding is what drives us keeps us moving forward It’s our passion our family our life And it’s the common bond that every skateboarder shares These days there are people skateboarding in nearly every corner of the planet But it all started right here From Santa Monica to Sunset Boulevard to the valley.

It’s just special and people come all around the world to skate a sledge I Don’t know what it is about this city. You can travel all over the world to so many different countries feel out of place But for some reason when we come here, we feel like we’re at home Leaves me I’m change it feels like there’s

There’s so much more to skateboarding than just pushing your own limits it’s about coming together and discovering something new On the outskirts of Barcelona long forgotten and buried beneath acres of dirt lay thy Mane’s of one of Europe’s first skateparks a Few years ago handful local skaters started digging it up whipping working animals for a year dig out the first ball use with hands the Coppola no, I Was expected here where this skate park was working that was 1979 They cover in 82 32 years ago.

That’s just where skateboarding is going When I was little skate rat I like seriously a dream so hard about this what we’re doing right now like dream prayed every day So hard and with the fact that it’s a reality is so I don’t know how to explain a feeling. It’s such a Surreal feeling. Yes. So I’m so glad I I literally was any one of these kids. I’m working with right now What do we get from skateboarding Well for each of us is different For some of us it’s purely an escape way to bond with friends Our way to challenge and express yourself Some people it’s the only thing they’ve got But no matter what happens to you once you get hooked it’s hard to ever let it go I Don’t usually have a destination to where I’m going. I still just love skating and that’s what I do. I Never was even expecting for it to become my career. And now no career. It’s like people still think I’m Pro though. It’s weird It’s like when you lose your job doesn’t matter what it is. It’s not going to be good and that’s life I just got to deal with it. I wouldn’t let the career part take away skating for me. That’s my sacred thing I’m not going to give that to anything or anyone I like looking for spots I’ll just skate around to usually a different zone and just a constant search man to me if finding a spot is like almost as Fun as landing a trick I Still love skating.

It’s kind of a freedom for him. You don’t need a language when you’re around the board I Just think that this is so good for him just to meet other people to travel and there’s so much more in the world for Him and my thing is just go you can always come home Community it’s what makes skateboarding unique like-minded individuals brought together by one simple act It’s what unifies us and when you take something like that and share it with the world People gravitate towards it Man’s appetite for expansion is unstoppable and in this part of the world, they’re showing no sign of slowing down for Skateboarders, that means one thing a never-ending supply of skate spots Landed from the states for an hour on the streets.

This is probably like the smartest security guards in China Like if they don’t want to escape they’ll spray down the shit water Well, there’s no shortage of spots in China there are still security guards and police to deal with

It’s the same for skaters everywhere no matter where we are there’s always someone who wants to stop us Gets old always getting kicked out having to deal with cops That’s why some skaters just go off the grid and create their own kind of freedom We develop something that we want to live for and this is our little piece of paradise Bruce had told me we need to build a place where we can do what we want William. Well, there’s no governing area These dudes are just here living man living to skate living to contribute build The reason that skatopia Exists is freedom of expression freedom of your mind But at the same time this place is about hard work and dedication.

Because you can see that trick in your mind. You have to keep at it until it becomes a reality When you finally do land one, it’s that feeling that’s what tips is coming back from one When you think about it, we’re all really just a product of our environment How we skate is defined by where we skate and that’s why some of the toughest skateboarders in the world Come from the rugged streets of Brazil It’s a hard place to go work But at the same time the hardness make us stronger the way skateboard is make us be more together, you know If you go to like a poor community or in the favelas You see the people are really United the struggle is real that scheme is not as fast rate the cinema, Nina Please think there’s a better Portuguese you show.

So you remember that? He get a nice level like naturally Channeling his magic Some people see a skateboard as a symbol of hope that feeling of belonging or feeling included it’s like a family Skateboarding is like a family of individuals that all have something in common. That’s so deep to their core Kind of defines you and makes you who you are We’re all searching for the same thing. And it’s like that feeling that skateboarding gives They told me that they’re not gonna fish my haircut until I get a trick There’s gotta go I guess The South has always been like abandoned building foundations and everybody starts getting creative and what they can make

You don’t have much sustain around there, you know just build what you boy I don’t think we got what we wanted from our state.

Yeah get off your ass and do it. Yeah Thanks for filling all that The time you’re in high school is a young kid growing up in Alabama a guy had my heart set on California I wanted more than anything in the world to be a pro skateboarder. So I was just here serving time There’s the hubbas get a clip at your school dude, that would be so sick. Well see it was doable Skating in the 90s was totally different in the sense that it wasn’t popular everywhere. Like it is now all the kids your age Just teased you mercilessly people who throw bottles at you yell stuff at you and like threaten you There’s times when as a kid you feel very hopeless and you feel like the walls are caving in Skateboarding the videos that were coming out and the things that were happening. I think that gave me hope that I would fit in somewhere Having a life in skateboarding. Was that hope? All of that’s gonna grind man feels rad coming back here 23 years later and skating the hubba come full circle I guess Where will you go? I stuck a nollie heel like three years ago and broke my truck. So gotta take advantage now while we’re here I’m so happy right now. Thank God The second I saw Jamie like skate.

I Love it all I’ll be 40 in two weeks and I’m really thankful to just be skating still much less grinding rails

You don’t just hate that got it, man. I don’t get rid training or not In life and in skateboarding You get what you put into it And when you dedicate your life to something That’s when you reap the biggest reward It’s pretty incredible how far a skateboard can take you It’s taken us to places we never would have imagined But no matter where you’ve been or what you’ve done you’re always gonna be left wondering And that’s the thing about skateboarding you never know what comes next Dubai is the next frontier It’s a blank canvas Just waiting to be skated. I’ve been told this whole city has been built in less than 20 years We’re in like us they Sage City. The buildings are just unreal It looks like they should have hovercrafts going for one to another as skaters You know, there’s nothing better than the skate things that have never been skated before Opportunities like this come along once in a lifetime Me We’re gonna talk Kojak

Then we’re debate if you break or jump or not I guess another airplane you gotta jump out Oh We’re in why it’s a small skate team. I hope this skate scene grows There’s definitely potential for all the kids out here cuz they have the best spots. Every skateboarding does seem like it’s growing here They’re new skaters every day.

We are at the tallest building in the whole world aka Burj Khalifa Stinky party One more fight Door We’ve given so much of our lives to skateboarding The skateboarding has given us even more in return It’s our lifeblood. It’s what makes us feel whole Is our connection to the world? And no matter how far we travel Whenever we meet another skater, there’s an unspoken bond The journey actually more important than the destination Maybe there’s more to it than that It’s those who join us on that journey, and the people we meet along the way that are most important

We come from so many different backgrounds and cultures but Skateboarding is more than that. It connects us Brings us together We’re all searching for that same indescribable feeling and At the end of the day, we ask ourselves why? Well, why not You You Okay that I brought into this cave Hurry dad they believe that They’re tearing down an actual skate spot to put a skate park Which it’s already pretty much been used as a skate park for the last 20 years Summer house 3 I could take you out, but I don’t want to hurt the town
