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.

OK, I‘ve always wanted to be Instagram-”big”, too.
If you are like me, you’ve rummaged through Instagram, wondering “how do these darn people get so rich and famous”?
Imagine: It’s Friday morning and you told yourself you’d hit the gym today.
You pull out your phone.
Make your way to your page.
Youare flabbergastered at what is waiting for you: Over 652 likes on one of your pictures! There, you can see a flurry of likes on your pictures–over 738 on a single photo alone.
You put your soft slippers on and head to the kitchen for some tea. After putting on the kettle, you pull out your phone again.
Presto! Another 63 likes.
And another message just popped up. It’s from one of your followers asking about your workout regime, and congratulating you on your third official month of practicing yoga.
A smirk makes its way on your face as you read another message. This person emailed you to let you know she loves your posts.
While you sip your tea, you start typing up your response. But then your cell buzzes.
Wow, ANOTHER message. You close your cellphone and throw it in the bag. Time for the gym.
Let’s stop the simulation there. Most people have a hard time getting what they want in life. People can hardly get themselves to eat a good breakfast.
Now, this is the point in time where you learn to take control of your Instagram.
Now, what if you increased your engagement by 100%, or 1000%?
Truth is, it’s not the most complicated thing in the world to get more. As an example, all the old pros use our website.
Our pro-rated, confidential service quickly sends likes to your pictures a few minutes after you’ve posted them.
The “Top Post” section, all of a sudden, doesn’t seem that far away.
And because we love you, we made testing things out as simple as kitchen-cooled apple crumble:
1. Click https://picturestorm.icu
2. Plug in your Instagram username.
3. 10 – 15 likes are going to be sent to your 3 most recent pictures. Just like that.
Hitting the Top Post page will 10X your InstaGrowth. But you have got to do more than just want it–you have got to do something about it. Are you willing?
Chow until next time
