The thing that always bothered me about “Day In The Life” sections is that they always seemed so planned and scripted. Like the camera guy comes in and “wakes the skater up”, they visit a couple cool spots, “accidentally” bump into all their homies, crack a beer and fade to black.
So naturally (stupidly) for this segment, we did the total opposite and came in with absolutely no preparation. Keith Hufnagel happened to be in town for the HUF x Chocolate “Forever” jam for Keenan Milton but aside from that, we didn’t really have anything set in stone. I figured we’d spend a couple of hours and hang out – whatever HUF is doing that day, we would do it with him, whether that’s grabbing a coffee, listening to music or holding his groceries.
Here’s just a small glimpse of time we spent with him walking around where he grew up in Midtown Manhattan, chatting it up.

Awesome that Jenkem got to chat with the Huf man himself. It ended pretty abruptly though—wish there was more.
