Four cities, 22 gigabytes of iPhone footage, and 8 massages later, Jenkem is proud to present our video documenting the Cons One Star tour through Asia. A little background: Last month, Converse hit us up about joining their squad on the Asia leg of their tour to come hang and document the fun. Of course we said yes. We’re not gonna turn down the opportunity to travel with Kenny Anderson, Frank Gerwer, Jake Johnson, Mike Anderson, Louie Lopez, Al Davis and a slew of others around Seoul, Shanghai, Hong Kong, and Macau. Hoping that the site wouldn’t implode working on Jenkem overseas (China’s internet is like 56kbs and heavily censored), I packed my bags, grabbed an iPhone 6 (I don’t think I’d be able to figure out a “real camera” anyway), and joined them to document the mayhem. For 14 days I held this damn phone to people’s faces, annoying them with stupid questions and recording them skating, drinking, and traveling.
So without further ado, I present to you “Full Service,” the first official Jenkem Tour video featuring the Cons team on their One Star Asia tour, all shot with a busted iPhone 6.
DOES SIZE MATTER?
I hit up physical therapist Dr. Kyle Brown for some insight on whether or not our height plays a noticeable role in how we skate.

@conman @wethepeople start your own zine, build a following, hire a small staff, and then let us know how you’ll be putting food on the table.

What was the first song? Good to see so much Frank footage – as well as just everyone skating in a more casual atmosphere. Great job Jenkem and crew, much prefer this to any HD big budget hollywood edit.
