Justin and Vin went on an insane road trip from Florida all the way up to Original's new home in Portland, OR. Along the way they ran into some sand, some water, some cement and a whole lot of asphalt before linking up with Donny Williams and the crew at OSHQ.
See the photos, get the story behind the video, and then get started planning your next Longboard Road Trip.
Bring a good playlist, be prepared for dead zones, and watch out for earthquakes.
One of the best parts about a road trip / skate trip is the fact that you will ALWAYS end up riding something you never would have imagined — and probably wouldn't have bothered skating if it was around the corner on the otherside of your neighborhood.
Those unique sessions at weird spots along the way are one of the reasons I always get stoked when I hear some of the guys are hitting the road. Always Jealous, but always stoked. There's never any doubt unique shots are going to come out the other side, thanks to Justin Bright behind the lens this trip was no different.
Skate missons, challenges, and challengers.
Most of the time Riding is a solo game against yourself — but when road tripping skateboarding turns into a true team sport. Grab the crew, pack the car, and go explore. Maybe even come visit us in Portland, OR.
Do what you gotta do, ride what you gotta ride.
There are lots of boards out there and lots of insanely talented people designing them. So it's always that much more awesome to run into riders supporting what we do and what we think OS stands for.
As long as you are outside the box, we think you are on the right track.
