Anybody remember when it was uncool to be a jock skateboarder? Yeah, that’s over. This Nike SB video celebrates football and skating.
As Nike points out, there are no two sports that demand greater dexterity, precision, power, control or creativity with one’s feet – than football and skateboarding. With that in mind, Nike SB sent five of its top riders to visit their Brazilian brethren in April, for a ‘friendly’ sampling of the atmosphere in Sao Paulo and Rio De Janeiro in the lead-up to the World Cup. Wieger van Wageningen, Denny Pham, Maxime Geronzi, Dani Lebron, Kyron Davis and their Brazilian counterparts Luan Oliveira and Fabio Cristiano all shred in the ensuing video. Of course, there’s a football thing in the air too.
Check out the trip above.
