This is the last video from my vacation in South America. In this part of the trip there is the famous IGSA race in Teutonia. The fastest spot I ever rode in my life. I was at 143 km/h on my street luge and at 102 km/h on my skateboard. Very cool road !
I would like to say thank to everybody helped me during my whole trip in South America. It was the best vacation in my life.

Thanks to Lele Rey and Manu Mordcovich to help me to film this.
After playing in the waves, Camilo, Dandoy and Ethan find balance between ocean and earth skating roads of back-to-back hairpins, traversing a ridge, or the unnaturally steep tucked into the mountainside.
These riders have worked hard to be at the forefront of this new style called longboard free-ride. Through their amazing determination have managed to do something special, opening opportunities through their passion for skateboarding.
Each from a different far away place and riding the same board, they have their own style and bag of tricks. These young riders emphasize our project focus to portray the highly skilled and under exposed.

The first episode "The Island" presents the project through our riders, location and the locals on the island. We owe the locals our gratitude and respect for working with us. Our very international and talented group of riders were requested for specific reasons as to what they would bring to the project. Our location and the riders difference in styles is revealed through foreshadowing what is to come in the five episode series.
Producing Greener Pastures Offshore has been an ambitious project for all involved. Working with leading creative producers and top companies in the longboard industry we’ve portrayed the sport not just in the “Extreme Sport” category, but in a narrative, artistic and cultural way. It has been a long, but fortunate process of meeting the right people at the right times; people who share the vision of Longboarding as a sport, way of life and passion to create an amazing team. This is a project for longboarders by longboarders.
The location was picked for its dense skating opportunities, year round temperate weather, unique and diverse microclimates, high elevation and pristine road construction. The relaxed island life and welcoming local riders creates a Mecca for our sport! Playing off the island location, the project name “Offshore” has been used to provide subtle secrecy to our location. As spots become known, we must remember that respect of the locals is most important to protect the longevity of our sport.
The focus of GP Offshore has been to work with young, talented free riders that are highly skilled and under-exposed. These riders are stars at the grass roots level; roll models, and community leaders in their own geographic location. It is apparent some of these riders are out of the global spotlight because their location is out of the hub of skateboarding: America. Traveling internationally opens the eyes in many ways. Skateboarding transcends language, religion and culture. There is no shortage of skilled riders. We can expect a lot from our riders, as they have vast opportunity for growth.
