#EricCantBelieve this kid was not impressed with the demo today. The ‘Sean Malto show’ was insane and fresh off 16 hours of travel. Add the German SB guys into the mix, Sido would have been impressed! MV represent! #MacheFürDieStraße

I was stoked to work on two of these clips with the skaters. They were the luckiest shoots I think I have been on for something planned like this.

Berlin without snow and above 0c in February for Denny’s shoot… it happened! It snowed the night we left. 

Landing the trick 5 minutes before the cops show up in Barcelona and not getting a ticket… priceless. Fran is a beast for throwing that down…

I still can’t believe we got all these done in the middle of winter (late jan, early febr). Thanks Max, Kyron, Denny and Fran, you guys rule! 

it is that time of year again… spring is finally here!
