One of my favorite places to skate is North Carolina. On one of my recent trips, I met up with the guys from Tribe Supply Co.
Tribe Supply Co. is a clothing company out of Michigan, which supplies some nifty styles to industries such as skiing, snowboarding, and of course, downhill skateboarding.
Tribe also made a trip out to North Carolina to shred some hills. With the help of my new friends from Tribe, Jake Tolan and Cam Stegar, and my old buddy from Team Broke Off, Matt McKeon, we filmed my first legitimate edit.
We filmed just outside of Asheville, deep in North Carolina’s Appalachian Mountains, on a spot nicknamed “Rockey Balboa.” Balboa actually features multiple sets of skateable roads in the side of the mountain. The roads in Balboa were built with the intent to start a neighborhood suburb. With the progress of building a neighborhood stopping at near stand still, skaters, like myself, are taking advantage of the paved asphalt.
With the help of a drone (which the photo above was taken with) and a camera mounted to a follow film car, the guys at Tribe and Team Broke Off filmed me taking runs.
Big thank you’s to the guys at Tribe Supply Co and Team Broke Off! Without their help, this edit probably would not have happened.
