For some reason, skateboarders are drawn to nonsensical, slangy words. Maybe it’s because we have a history coming up with goofy trick names. Maybe it’s because we idolize childhood. Or maybe it’s just because we’re not all there, mentally.
Whatever the cause, we’re excited to show off the San Diego crew known as Mohkie. Much like Jenkem itself, Mohkie is a style of getting blazed that only skateboarders would be dumb enough to try.
Basically, a ‘moke‘ (or ‘mole’) is when you smoke tobacco and weed in a bong. These guys were so hyped on rippin’ mokes 8 years ago that they started going to Mohkie Town (smoking mokes in a dark room) and even throwing Mohkie parties. They eventually took a break from the moke hits and did what any smart skater would do: turn their inside joke into a video series and make merch.
This video is the product of a month-long European tour with phenomenal skating and $10 massages on the beach in Barcelona. Isaac Eteminan, the filmer and editor, realized the footage was too good to save for their next full-length and decided to put it out with some of the best editing and lo-fi special effects we’ve seen in a while. Like if a leprechaun learned After Effects, but with 2x more hijinx.
As Isaac said: “We’re in the streets. We’re not in a gym. There’s so much shit going on around us it would just be stupid to not integrate the environment and people into it. You kind of experience the whole trip that way.”
So to honor the Mohkie crew, fill your bong up with a 40oz, pack the bowl with lint, and prepare to get smacked.
