Skateboarding (probably) won’t make you rich, but it can definitely make you rich in experiences. Case in point: What other job would randomly fly you to Mardi Gras to party and interview Nora?

When Adidas asked if we might be interested in the idea as a way to promote her new shoe colorway, we quickly agreed as neither Nora or ourselves had ever been to New Orleans and were curious to check out one of the biggest parties of the year.

With additional help from Philly (New Orleans native & Owner of Humidity Skate Shop) as a host and tour guide, we headed down to ride the wave of parties, film an interview with Nora while she was injured, and learn from the locals.

    Y’all ain’t ready for NOLA. Too soft. Bummer for y’all. Come back when you ready to get butt naked, dirty, sweaty, and bloody. That’s NOLA. Shot out Wavy. Hot Boys.

    I see her around sometimes and she’s just like that to everybody in real life. I wish I could be that cool to everybody.

    I would put in a few other things.

    Point out that the vast majority (95%) of the women flashing are tourists. Not local girls.

    Point out people should probably bring a bag to carry throws. It’s crazy the number of tourists who don’t think about this.

    Mention the gay areas of the Quarter. A lot of gay people come to NOLA; point them to the ambush and let them have at it.

    I would stress heavily that driving to the quarter isn’t really an option. The I-10 gets backed up well past LaPlace. Staying on the Northshore and trying to commute in isn’t gonna fly on Mardi Gras weekend.

    Mention that Mardi Gras ENDS on Fat Tuesday, at Midnight. The horse cops come marching down bourbon, and you have to leave, right there and then. There are no appeals; no way you can weasel out of it. Show’s over; go home.
