Tell us about the perfect skate tour for you:
Perfect skate tour would be to a place like Japan,Copenhagen or NYC with all the boys, street, vert, art and everything in between. Ideally spending multiple weeks skating, partying, and filming mental stuff with those hangover days spent filming broll. Also If we went somewhere like japan and scored perfect waves, skating and exploring it would be perfect.
