A group of guys from Vancouver, beautiful British Columbia. Riding to inspire.
We have been riding for 5+ years, are completely able to rip down any hill, anywhere, anytime. Its kinda cool!
Most of us ride still, and will continue for many years.
Companies have pushed us to our limits around the world, taking on any hills we can find, and riding down them in the name of speed boarding.
We do it because we love it.
We all met roughly four years ago. While the longboarding scene in Vancouver was exploding, we had friends from high school that rode, they had friends, that new other friends.Sessions happened on a regular basis, thats how we all got to know each other, all of those friends soon became riding buddies. We were all very into riding not just to have fun, being reckless teenagers on open roads, but to be in control, to be able to know our limits. Once we found those limits, we would push the living shit out of them.
The rest of the longboard community saw us and noticed that we were getting good, they noticed that we were getting board company support, they noticed that we were flying places. I honesty think the reason that the longboard community in Vancouver became so small was because we blew up.
The Homies Skate Media is here to inspire. We want to collectively bring the longboard scene to where it used to be. The collective movement of the Homies making videos, is to show you, what you and few of your good buddies can do.
Skating is part of us, its a large portion of our lives. It allows us to stop thinking about all the other shit that can be happening, by simply stepping onto a skateboard and rolling down a hill. Honestly, its very difficult to put into word, but from my perspective it is one of those feelings of pure focused sensory stimulating freedom.
