The last 48 hours has been the most insane experience for me in the new digital media age. Yoshi Tanenbaum’s welcome clip to Stereo just hit over 100k+ views in 2 days on Ride Channel. When Paul Wall talked about the internet going nuts, I wonder if this is what he meant…

Yoshi was only a kid on Stereo flow before he came over to visit me this summer in Berlin. After getting buck in front of my lens, it is nice to see things are changing. The only thing is, we need to get your sponsors to help pay for your plane tickets for your next trips… haha!

To the next 5 video parts my friend…

On July 4th, the Bright is going to have a skate session on a boat like this in Berlin. A few years back, Chet found this one while we were on a filming mission for the SB Chronicles 1 and it was pretty epic! Given some of the skaters who will be at the Bright this, this is going to be a session that should not be missed!
