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 almost no preparation. We figured we’d spend a couple of hours and hang out – whatever Sammy was feeling 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 Sammy going thru his friends’ first pro models, meeting random performers in Sydney, and finding the best bootleg merch on the Australian black market.
