May 2011- NY 6

In June I am going to the Brazilian Amazon. As I was surfing the web and getting hyped for the trip, I came across a cool series done by Skateboarder Magazine and Converse, where a group of skaters travel in the Amazon. Besides enjoying to watch people like Kenny Anderson and Clint Peterson skate the Amazon, I also thought it was great the way the videos made you get to know the skaters better as people. Usually skate videos only show skaters skating, and do not capture their lives or how they think.

I was already planing to take my board along with me but the last thing I expected was for there to be some serious fun spots to skate between the river and the jungle.
