While going downhill fast and shredding it is always fun, sometimes you just wanna skate at your own pace.
In the first of three shorts in the Stoke +63 series, Longboards Manila and Manila Man Productions spent an evening with just those types of folks who do do that. These are just some the people in your neighborhood.
Hope you'll enjoy this brief video as much as we did making it.
Thank you, Liz, Bojit, Gian, and Japeth for your time and sharing with us your unique insights. Thank you also to the following skaters and friends who shared the stoke with us that evening:
Nico Naguit, Artee Libunao, Justin Rivera, John Tumang, Gino Jose, Gali Te, and Dino Pastrano
Special thanks as well to the people of Barangay Kapitolyo for giving us permission to skate that evening.
This wouldn't be possible without the creativity of our friends at Manila Man Productions:
Director: Paolo Abrihan
Directors of Photography: Miguel Gutierrez and Gio Puyat
Assistant Directors: Dijo Songco and Gracie Vergara
Editor: Gio Puyat

Remember to skate safe and always wear a helmet!
