Four days, unlimited beers, and one trashed AirBnB later, Jenkem is proud to present “Make The Call”, a little video documenting skateboarding, spot building, and debauchery in the South with the Levi’s Skateboarding crew and our very own Fred Gall.
A little background: we’ve been working with Levi’s Skateboarding for several years now (they were sponsors for our Locals video series) and we’ve jumped on missions and bowled + skated with the dudes since the early days of Jenk but never done an official trip together. So instead of flooding more digital newsfeeds, we thought we’d hop in a good ol’ fashioned van and join forces on a timeless skate mission through the South.
As you know, we’ve never been interested in filming the best skate bangers of all time – our mission was simply to meet up with the locals, party, and build something to leave behind for the community of skaters to tinker with.
So with little preparation, we made the call and drove around Georgia and Alabama with everyone to make some skate obstacles and memories. Holed up together in one house, little did we know that over the next 4 days we would test the limits of how little sleep the human body could endure.
