Farewell Axel

eric kaupilla

My good friend and skate buddy Eric has officially departed for China today. He’ll be over there for the next year or so teaching English and enjoying the massive skatepark that is downtown Shenzhen. I’m hoping to visit him sometime this year to do some skateboarding and inner-exploration, but until then help me wish the kid good luck and safe travels! If you’d like to follow along with his journey, head on over to Ain’t Got No Coffee.

Here’s a shot I got of Eric this winter at our top-secret Wild Billz winter headquarters.

Good luck my dude!
