For some reason, skateboarders are drawn to nonsensical, slangy words. Maybe it’s because we have a history coming up with goofy trick names. Maybe it’s because we idolize childhood. Or maybe it’s just because we’re not all there, mentally.
This video is the product of a month-long European tour with phenomenal skating and $10 massages on the beach in Barcelona. Isaac Eteminan, the filmer and editor, realized the footage was too good to save for their next full-length and decided to put it out with some of the best editing and lo-fi special effects we’ve seen in a while. Like if a leprechaun learned After Effects, but with 2x more hijinx.
As Isaac said: “We’re in the streets. We’re not in a gym. There’s so much shit going on around us it would just be stupid to not integrate the environment and people into it. You kind of experience the whole trip that way.”
So to honor the Mohkie crew, fill your bong up with a 40oz, pack the bowl with lint, and prepare to get smacked.
