Always been a fan of @paulshier and all that surrounds him. This video is as raw as it gets. Inspiration for creativity in every way. And of course, Nina Simone always hits home with me. Cheers to @jacobelliottharris for your vision and all the skaters for skating some of the hardest spots I've ever seen. #isleskateboards #vasevideo
So... Nicaraguan sea turtles lay their eggs and they are stolen and then sold to be eaten. 2 houses away from where I'm staying, I met this retired man named Scott. He decided to go and offer the people selling the eggs more money than they're asking for and he's been continuously buying up all the eggs. He built a little house where he takes care of them until they hatch and then releases them. He also invites school classes over to help him release them into the ocean. He has saved 1000's. When the government asked him why... He said that he just wants to show them what these eggs actually are and hopefully the next generation won't eat them. #amazinghuman #nicaragua @evaniceholz and I helping to put around 300 babies back where they belong.
We went to get food for dinner at an organic farm (Finca de Oliva) and I lurked around the office area. The farmer (Bigs) told me that 40+ years ago wine was cheaper than water and he'd drink wine out of these same canteens instead while he worked. He laughed, took a long drink and continued on farming. #Amazinghuman #Nicaragua #supportyourlocalorganicfarm
A few months ago I went on a life changing @loudheadphones X #letthemhearfoundation trip to Costa Rica to witness 2 kids hear for the first time. Click the link in my bio to see some of the photos I shot, watch the video by @colemathews and @thisguysthelimit and to read the very heartfelt and touching story that @nieratko wrote for @vice. Here is a photo that wasn't used of @nuge666 and @mikeanderson mid surgery. I am forever humbled and honored to have been a part of this. I can't wait for the next one!! Who wants to help?
Bogota was our last stop. Amazing way to end the whole #onestarworldtour. Kids crying over Louie, Toya, Tom's birthday soccer kick, Bobby's flat and MILTON!! Thank you @Conversecol, everyone that came to see us and of course @onboard for supporting skateboarding for decades in Colombia! Gracias @psychocafe73 and @golden_sb para la fiesta! @bobbydekeyzer @aaron_herrington @miltonskatee @nuge666
Happy Birthday @benchadourne! One of my favorite styles on a skateboard, my dance partner and the #onestarworldtour arm wrestling champion. This is dedicated to Ben and all of the other skaters in France. My thoughts, heart and energy for all my friends and everyone in Paris. #prayforparis #chantforparis #nammyohorengekyo #peaceinparis 🇫🇷
Happy Birthday @zeredbassett. Thank you @converseskatearg @treebuenosaires @loriaskateshop and @ehparkparadise_skatepark for having us and for supporting skateboarding in Argentina! Salud to my vegan brother @chelo.gagliano for making sure we both had the best food. #onestarworldtour Buenos Aires @rube_ @twistthewrist @bobbydekeyzer
Can't thank the #znakeside crew enough for letting @bianobianchin and I help with the building. You all are as genuine as skateboarding gets. @converse_br had a best trick session and all the money went to future DIY building. Looking forward to see what is built next. So much love for the Rio skaters, Cons team and crew, our security, and especially @pablohellnoso for getting my board back! Thank you for welcoming all of us. ❤️ @kauecossa @instacrobs @lookdatsh1t @daniellopesbastos @renatosk8 @renatocustodio @andorinhafilmes @instagranja @ruzentavares @sageelsesser @jkjhnsn @converse_cons #onestarworldtour Rio de Janeiro
The first time i ever traveled out of the states was for a Converse trip back in 1998. We came to Bangkok and I helped judge a local contest. 17 years later and my 2nd trip back to Thailand, I get to see and talk with the legendary skater that won that contest. @nutty_ms. Here he is with the trophy from '98. I talked with him and a few others I had met back then and the memories they told me are beyond precious and priceless. Thank you for the love and for keeping the Thai skate scene so strong for so many years. Thank you @simon_preduce for the Muy Thai, Vegan food, and especially for making sure we were all comfortable this whole trip. And @antclaravall for always going above and beyond. @converse_cons #onestarworldtour
Our 8five2 body guards. Thank you @8five2shop and @jbs8five2 for all of the love and support, not only this trip but for the past years. Special thanks to Matt who owns and operates @yardbirdhk for my amazing vegan dishes. The best I've eaten this whole trip. (And he skates) @converse_cons #onestarworldtour Hong Kong @edwinwatch
