Yesterday I was in New York to be interviewed for a documentary called Humanity Stoked. The film approaches a broad range of topics, but is focused heavily on healing and putting forth our best to the world, both as individuals and a society. The people interviewed all happen to be connected to skateboarding/surfing.
I am beyond grateful and truly honored that Impact was identified as an organization that is making a positive difference in the lives of young people. Still can’t believe I was asked to be interviewed alongside some of my childhood heroes and the biggest names in skateboarding: @tonyalva @tonyhawk @bam__margera @christianhosoi @bthurstonanderson @chriscobracole @leticiabufoni @vanessatorres @nyjah and so many more!
Even more important is that this project brings together such an impressive variety of perspectives—athletes, musicians, artists, activists, educators—and exemplifies the diversity of thought that it aims to promote, along with mutual respect and dignity for all people.
Thanks very much, Michael, Ian, and the entire team! Can’t wait to see the finished product!
“In the spirit of the film and its important mission, the entire Humanity Stoked Crew/Production team works for free. All of their time, talent, and even equipment is provided without cost because they support the selfless mission to help inspire people and affect positive change in the word, for the benefit of humanity. (Well, that and their love of skateboarding and surfing too!) Like the film itself, we hope that inspires you already. Much love to all!”
