Every Blake Carpenter make is crisp, proper, and authoritative. There’s an economy to how he logs footage and stitches together stand-alone tricks with rhythm and poise. If he’s getting tech, he compliments it with distance or difficulty yet still makes a switch ollie anything but standard with his gifted pop.
The skate tour formula hasn't changed much in the last 30+ years: Get the team in a van and hit the road. So that's exactly what we did. We're not trying to reinvent the wheel here, just trying to enjoy our time spent on four wheels.
