A big part of downhill skateboarding is exploring new terrain with your friends. Most start with loading up a van and heading out to the nearest elevation change in hopes of finding a rad run close to home. The apex of the downhill dream is to hop on a plane and travel to the most remote locations on earth in search of the best roads our planet has to offer. James Kelly's dream for the past 5 years has been to travel to a small island off of Madagascar called La Réunion, and skate the roads he had only seen from satellite imagery. We decided to send him and Liam Morgan to fulfill that dream, and have Jack Boston capture the journey in a way that only he could. In Part One the boys begin exploring the island, finally setting foot on the asphalt they've been dreaming of.
On La Réunion everything is rooted in the volcano; every road, every town, every microclimate is a product of it's terrain. In Part Two the boys meet with the locals - and with their help - indulge in the islands volcanic landscape. Liam and James experienced the full spectrum of what the island has to offer. Sketchy driving, martian landscapes, and strong local ties - Part Two has it all!
In the third and final piece in the La Réunion series, Liam and James push their limits on and off their boards. James battles injuries, Liam battles his fear of heights, and together they skate as hard as they can. Kick back and enjoy top level of skating and scenery that the final episode brings with it.
