A short tour film about Blondey, Jarrad Carlin skating Beirut in the heat of a record breaking August of ’23.

Here’s what Blondey had to say about the trip:

“In August 2023, Jarrad Carlin and I in London, Alex Pires in Paris, and Waylon Bone in New York decided to ignore our three governments’ guidelines and meet in Beirut. I, being of Lebanese origin, had visited the country many times, but not for years and never the city. It turned out to be the hottest August on record ever. Everyone was sick except for me — I was sweating too much, helping myself to the cornucopia of previously 24/7 guarded plazas, which, in the wake of the port explosion and the collapse of the banks, have become rather open playgrounds. I’m sure it’s not just the money, by the way; it really feels as though there has been a communal weighing-up of what is and isn’t worth getting into anything over. Which brings me to the people. My God, the people… Can you imagine someone leaving their work in London, not only to move their car out of your run-up but to instruct their employees to rearrange theirs too, then offer you fruit and cigarettes and coffee and to wash your face? You’d think they were cannibals! This project is dedicated to those people. And to my grandfather, Heni. Without him, I’d be an entirely different person, living an entirely different life, and I am blessed to be able to say that doesn’t appeal to me. Not one bit.”

With a list of skaters like that, how can Ace Trucks’ “Open Return” video not be a hit & with Lucien Parsons in the editing room this is meant to be a success.

The Always squad flew to New York City to collab with local brand Noah and this is what they brought back. Seems like they had a blast. S/O to Human Lev for making that sick animation!

We love everything about this. A true masterpiece produced on over two-decade-old equipment. MUST WATCH!

Why are Australian skaters so damn gnarly? This video is another reason to keep Down Under on your radar. Also, the average age is below 21.
