A ten day trip exploring three of the Azorean Islands (San Miguel, Pico, and Terceira). A loop through the local culture and landscape in search of untouched skate spots and visits to local craftsman in order to learn from their environment and their centenarian way of working. Can we add a contemporary vision to their traditional process? Living in the age of over-information, the work of many skaters and videographers pass us by with a quick scroll of the thumb. However, a small percentage of these creatives are joining forces and ideas to distance themselves from this, attempting to create something more physical. Why travel with only a “skate trip" mentality?
Remote destinations are a chance to learn something new, a great opportunity for us skateboarders and new cultures to cross paths.
