Skateboarder Magazine released webisode 6 of “The Amazon” documentary series today. Today’s webisode entitled “Manaus” finds the crew in the large city of Manaus, located in the middle of the Amazon and the rainforest. They are very pleased to find that Manaus has, what seems like, an endless supply of good skate spots. But, after a long day of skating and filming, the guys decide to go check out some waterfalls with some locals…and that’s when things get interesting.
Skateboarder Magazine released webisode number 5 of 6 today in its “Amazon” documentary series. “Boat Legs” catches up with the crew about half way through their 4 day, 800-mile journey down stream on board a cramped river boat. They are all a little suprised to hear from the Captain why the boat turned around for short time in the early hours of the morning. The crew eventually arrives in their destination city of Santarem to a plethora of skate spots, with 36 hours to put in some serious work! Check it out….this is the best one yet!
Take a look at this trailer for Skateboarder Magazine’s “The Amazon: Documentary Series”. Photographer Johnathan Mehring and Filmmaker Josh Stewart (Welcome to MIA) traveled to the Amazon with Jack Sabback, Jake Johnson, Clint Peterson, Raymond Molinar, Adelmo JR., and Kenny Anderson back in the spring of 2010 on a skateboarding mission. The documentary captures 3 weeks of skateboarding and all of the other “adventures” they encountered while travelling down the Amazon without any idea of what was in store for them. The entire series is broken into 6 webisodes, with webisode #1 available Monday on www.skateboardermag.com. The launch of the webisodes also runs in conjunction with the release of the new issue of Skateboarder Magazine which features senior photographer Johnathan Mehring’s amazing photo story of the entire trip!
