Arbor Skateboards :: Sucrose Initiative ~ Sam Hay

“The best thing about Sam Hay is his affinity for charging burly roads at full speed. We asked Sam to show us what he’s got for his first Sucrose Initiative video, so he upped the spud factor and brought it out on the gnarliest pieces of pavement in the ‘bu. The Sucrose Initiative was developed to bring rider-based design and quality material driven performance together to deliver a product that is friendly to the earth and your wallet.” – Arbor

Raw Run : David “Fingerbang” Rudgers

So Bad Decisions Alex did something kind of mean. He took a girl who had never seen downhill skateboarding in her life, and put her in the follow car down the local favorite behind Landyachtz and Caliber rider David Rudgers. Wide angle lenses never truly do justice to how close Alex gets to the skaters, so just trust her that its messed up.
