We took the crew out to AZ to film this wear test video for the new Adidas Samba ADV. Enjoy!
Thomas Turner is a local shredder out in Tempe, AZ. We first saw him ripping at the Element Skate Camp when we were up there for our Fresgnar trip and kept in touch ever since.
Our dude Eric Ylikangas sat down and talked with him for bit. Get to know Thomas! Make sure to watch the clips he sent over after below.
A trip to Arizona is a must every year. Packed the van with the Active homies and headed east through the desert for an epic trip. Cowtown‘s finest, The PHX Am is an annual trip I always look forward to going to. There were many contestants and a good amount of Active Ride Shop team riders in the contest. It didn’t matter if you win or lose, it was more about having fun & skateboarding. The after parties were always held with some great headlining bands and this year, The Black Lips played, which I heard many great things about them live. Ended the day on Sunday for the finals & best trick contest.
For Spring Break I decided to pack my bags and take a road trip down to Phoenix, AZ to show some love and support for our boys on the Active AM team at Phx AM. After a long 6 hour drive, I was greeted by 95 degree weather and beautiful skies. AZ showed me a good time and I’ll definitely be back.
We out here!
