Skate the World – Photographing One World of Skateboarding –

written by Rob Rodrigues March 13, 2017

I look forward to watching the sport that I fell in love with as a nine-year-old continue to grow in unlikely places and continue to transcend race, religion, language, and economic barriers – and maybe make the world a little smaller along the way – Tony Hawk

I bumped into an old friend last week who used to see my bands play years ago when I was drumming in NYC. We were catching up and himself a lifelong professional musician asked me – “How come you stuck with skateboarding and faded away as a musician?” – My shortest most sincere answer was – Over the years my best friendships and strongest bonds were always based around people I connected with through skateboarding. I’ve always been able to find great mentors in skating and in turn mentor upcoming generations.

Published by National Geographic with sponsorship from Levi’s Skateboarding documents the photos and travel of Jonathan Mehring. A collectible 2015 print edition that frames my sentiment and the essence skate culture and adventure very well.
