Waterfalling a Brazilian beer standing on top of the largest waterfall in the world. Foz do Iguaçu in Brazil is breathtaking. You just have to see it to believe it. Insane. Felipe Gustavo and I went to his hometown and the capital of Brazil, Brasilia, after Foz. I never ate so much in my life. That dude is going to be 600 pounds someday. I’ll probably be sitting next to him, at 700 pounds. The food tour was awesome and the skating was the same as it ever was. Almost got attacked by wild monkeys too.
Hyped on my new relationship with ESPN. I’ll be pumping out 10 Pro Series videos with Ryan Sheckler this year. Stay tuned. Shot on Red Epic. Additional footage provided by Kirk Dianda and Tim Irwin from Oakley In Oz.]]>
I’ve grown fond of this place! It’s my third time here. Cafe Xperience gave me own menu item and I had no idea. Epic! They threw me a going away party too and Linda made me a cake with monkeys on it since my Chinese name is 猴子 (Hóuzi), which means monkey.
We had a blast like always. Some Chinese kid wrote a note in permanent marker on a ledge for the Plan B team to call him and left his full name and phone number. The ledge is in front of a nice college. Gnarly.
Our guide, Pappa, was incredible. No English. Funkiest teeth you’ll ever see. Handles business like a pro. Walks around the hotel in his robe and is constantly fucking with everyone. Great guy. Psycho.]]>
Hyped to work with Nixon and Plan B on something. The products are rad. I use the speaker almost everyday and the board features the most creative spin on grip I’ve seen in years.
I came up with the concept, directed, shot, and edited this bad boy.

Original music by Danny Way. <- How cool is that?
Network A wanted to use a new interactive video player and incorporate skateboarding. Plan B was the team of choice and I was approached to direct. I came up with this concept and the rest is history. Have fun playing with our half skate video, half video game thingy.
I came up with the concept and directed the spot.

This was my intro to the acting world and I nailed it. If I would have stayed on track, I’d probably be on the set of Fast & Furious 6 or something. I’m stoked to be in the video for a song rad enough that Wade Speyer skated to it. If you’re having trouble recognizing me, I’m the quarterback fetus with the giant head.]]>
I will be quoting Pete Weber today, tomorrow, and everyday there after.
Yes! God damn it, yes!
That is why I did it! I… number 5! Are you kidding me!? That’s right!
Who do you think you are!? I am!
Damn it, right!
Sheckler Sessions has landed!
Stay tuned for Red Bull‘s 18 episode series of Ryan Sheckler and friends killing it on and off the board.]]>
GoPro invited Ryan Sheckler and me to try out the new GoPro Wi-Fi BacPac. We dreamt up a fun little concept and headed to New York City. Thanks to everyone involved. Stoked on the final product!]]>
