If you couldn’t tell, I love skateboarding; I also love bicycles. For over two decades I’ve been an obsessive skateboarder and bicycle fanatic. Yeah, it sounds kind of cheesy when you put it that way, but if there’s anything I’ve come to learn in the last 20+ years, it’s that there’s nothing quite like combining two great things and doing them both at the same damn time.
Sometimes great things aren’t really mean’t to go together; red wine and sour candy, Mentos and diet cola, a hot shower in a tropical climate, road bikes and disc brakes (LOL) – you know what I mean? But when you take a bike tour in a place like New Zealand and combine it with some skateboarding, you’ve got yourself a surefire guaranteed fun-as-hell saga ahead you. “Riding The Long White Cloud” is a visualization of countless dreams I’ve woken up from, except that it actually happened.
Check out this documentary by Alex Craig, featuring some of my favorites: Rick McCrank, Silas Baxter Neal, Cairo Foster, John Rattray, Keegan Sauder, Chris Haslam and Kenny Anderson.
So kick it back, grab yourself a choice beverage and start planning a journey of your own.
