Skateboarder Magazine’s Senior Photographer Jonathan Mehring got together with the globetrotting filmer Patrik Wallner to plan and film a skateboarding trip to Vietnam. The ambitious trip was especially difficult on old school motorbikes, the only method of transport used while there. But as they say, the bigger the risk, the bigger the reward, which is probably why the likes of Jerry Hsu, Keegan Sauder, Joey Pepper, Javier Mendizibal and Michael "Michi" Mackrodt were game to accompany them on this journey down nearly the entire length of Vietnam despite some of their limited past experience's with doing so." The trip didn’t produce a whole lot of skating but The lush surroundings that make up Vietnam are the real treat in this very well shot twenty plus minute film.
Directed, Filmed & Edited by Patrik Wallner
