I can't think about skateboarding sometimes because if you step outside everything you know about it, everything you've seen on tv, or in videos, or stop thinking about tricks as you're seeing them, imagine it for what it ACTUALLY is outside the bubble were all in. where we constantly consume content and dispose it. you look at it in its core, that it's actually a dude on a plank of wood launching 20 feet into the air, or sliding down a 30 stair rail on that same plank of wood. it's the coolest thing ever. I can't believe I've got to be a part of this lifestyle for 10 years now. no matter where I could ever go in life the mentality it instilled in me will forever be what I am. this is my little homie @cyle.m he can 5050 down Hubbas now, we watched him learn how to skate. this 5050 felt just as cool to watch as the biggest ones I've ever seen, and I like how I took the photo. #skateboardingisfun #adetroitfilm
not sure if there was any better way to start a rainy day than opening my door to this DC box full of product! I am so so so grateful I have such amazing people and opportunities in my life. this came in clutch before this Chicago trip. 🙏thank🙏you🙏so much @bobbysorich for being the truth! since day one of everything that's my brother😁😁. no exaggeration. chitown let's do this!!😈 #iloveandmissmydawgs forever grateful. skateboarding takes care of you beleeeeee dat.
the hardest part of life for me lately is seeing more and more how this world is run by people who have no compassion. I literally cannot hear anyone talk anymore about mike brown being killed, or the 300,000 detroit homes facing water shutoffs, or people asking for more for minimum wage. how many times have you felt what poverty is like? how many times did you wake up and leave for school while your mom is defeated and crying her eyes out on the couch because she's doing everything she can to provide for her seed, but REALLY cannot find a way? not everyone has help, not everyone was taught, or has a platform to bounce back from. until you've lived in an environment that seems hopeless in the long term, you can't understand what hopeless feels like. THERE ARE NO OPINIONS ON THAT, ITS FACT. YOU ARE TURNING OFF PEOPLE'S WATER, they literally CANNOT afford it or they would pay, it's required to live. are we forgetting there's infants in these homes that know nothing? and these are the ones you expect to grow and change their environment. how can you grow as a person when you don't even have the most basic of necessities. everyone is so busy crying about being single they cannot comprehend there's people living without basic human needs. I saw a quote on a trip to Arizona once that said "billions have lived without love, but not one without water" now I get it. same with these minimum wage workers, a lot of them have NOTHING to build from, they're just getting by. they don't have much options for better jobs, they're in poverty ALREADY. not to mention use your brain, you're stuck in THIS world, which is wrong. how much money does mcdonalds make? they can afford to pay more and not even notice a dent in their pockets. and why do you care if a fast food worker feels their time is worth more? guess what? it is... so is yours. its a spoiled brat mentality to complain about anyone trying to better their position whether you think they deserve it or not. were all in this together. if they're supposed to jump from lower to middle class, then why didn't you in the middle jump to upper? same logic. I'm done. I'm trying. #adetroitfilm is about this generation. EVERYTHING.
this is my friend silly. he's one of the most insane skateboarders I've ever met. those are all forward flip variations... minus the late flip. all from a video we make in the harsh MI winter. unreal. hyped to be able to skate with such cool people. helps me get better at what I like to do! #skateboarding #adetroitfilm
had a super fun time skating these curb cuts to ledges downtown, till the boys came through and had to try to flex those one muscles that you get when you kinda aren't really hyped with where you're at in life and see someone else enjoying theirs, so you have to stop it with screaming and badge showing. what are those muscles called again? . 🚓🚨🚶 we will be back. #adetroitfilm #detroit #skateboarding
