Onboard Distribution – All The Pinche Way Monterreal Edit

The homies at Onboard Distribution were a HUGE help with running All The Pinche Way last fall in Mexico. Pinche Tour Mama, Claudio, now working with Onboard as well as Rayne, shot a bunch of video at Monterreal and just released a sick edit for Onboard’s channel to highlight their support for the tour.

Thanks to Claudio and Andres for all the support! Now peep the footage:

Pinche Interview with Thane Mag

Gbemi has been blogging about the longboard world for a few years now with All Around Skate and Thane Magazine. He has a unique style of Google Doc interviewing with an interesting and disarming feel and pace. A few months back (or so it feels?), Gbemi got in touch about my involvement in Rayne and Vicious, this time he wanted to hear about the Rayne All the Pinche Way Tour.

Check the link for the full interview.

All The Pinche Way Ep. 3

Monterrey and Monterreal is where we got inspired to start All the Pinche Way. I traveled to the 2012 MILF with Aidan and Justin and really fell in love with the region. Returning with the tour was definitely a grand idea.

The feature image is Levi Green in Monterrey… getting his daily cheesus. By this time, Levi has given up on riding his downhill deck and just started shredding a Rayne Catalyst with 62mm Envies and blasting huge slides beside the occasional ollie. Photo from Will Edgecombe.

THC and NoNeed4Lube were on it all trip supporting the tour with camera gear, but really blew it up with tight car mount, follow runs. Big thanks to all of them and the homies that showed us the way and gave us places to stay.

Big thanks to Claudio Uribe, Onboard Distribution, Vicious Grip, Rayne Longboards and all the homies in Mexico who helped make this awesome!

PS. I brought home tons of footage and I gotta keep giving credit to Aidan Lynds for plowing through it all to make these edits.

All The Pinche Way Ep. 2

I still don’t know where Dan and Aaron got a chainsaw, but we were having fun at Black Flag Skate and Climbing shop all the same. Continuing from Guadalajara to Mexico City this time, we made a quick visit to Leon on the way.

What the video doesn’t show is that Claudio left us with La Migra (the Van) to go to Mexico City on our own. He was busy and needed to meet us there. Who sends 8 Pinche Gringo’s on the road by themselves? Luckily we had Dan Favela to take care of us (and yet, he has the chainsaw?).

Interview in Sauder Viewpoints

This Spring I was fortunate enough to get a call from the UBC Sauder School of Business where I did my MBA.

Viewpoints was doing an article called “A Motto For Life” on Tuum Est, the schools motto since 1915. The idea is that your education, your opportunities, your adventures are, up to you. I am honoured to have been contacted.

Here’s a link to the Magazine’s Spring Issue on Issuu –  I am on pages 18/19: http://issuu.com/sauder-viewpoints/docs/spring2013/20
