The rest of the gear showed up (thanks American Airlines for nothing) and it was now time to rock and roll. Lighting was good, the crew was perfect, Albuquerque was insane.
More amazing ditches throughout the city. Go there to experience it yourself. No joke, you’ll love it. Miles and miles of ditches.
The Canada Goal! Series board in the mix with a filled truck bed.
Weather cleared up… kinda. Still psycho windy and about 45°, but that was bearable. Decided to go warm up and some skateparks then headed to the first ditch. Albuquerque is unreal. Everywhere you look there are amazing hills, ditches and skatespots. Untouched and no one to really bother you. I can’t describe how much fun it is to skate there.
Loren making magic without the use of his “other” camera.
And of course the girls looking beautiful no matter what they do.
We woke at the boarder of Arizona and New Mexico early Saturday morning. Then headed to North New Mexico to meet up with the rest of the crew from Utah. The goal was to shoot in the Desert for a couple days but that idea got squashed due to weather.
Ended up hanging out there trying to see if we could make something work then decided to head south.
We ended up getting to Albuquerque a couple hours before sunset. When we got there it was the most insane dust storm, no joke we couldn’t see anything and if you tried to go outside your eyes and face would die from the sand hitting you. Just when we thought it wouldn’t get any worse it started to rain. At that point we had given up for the day but figured go drive around and check out some skate parks. We ended up at the North Domingo Baca Skate Park, then out of no where the sun came out for sunset, and along with it was 2 epic rainbows. Such a magical session.
Day 1 of the Carnales Road Trip. We left Encinitas around 6am and headed out east, the end goal for the first day was Flagstaff, AZ. First stop was the Brawley Skatepark in California. Then from there we stopped at the dunes to test out some sample decks. We were gonna skate the Yuma park but figured we would hit it up on the way back home.
Had a late lunch in Phoenix with some friends and said hello to the kind folks over at Cowtown.
