Eric Koston. Rune Glifberg. Ryan Sheckler. Curren Caples. Oakley sent this lethal foursome to Australia with legendary skateboarder/photographer Arto Saari and what resulted was an amazing multimedia story on the trials and tribulations that come with being any one of these heralded skaters out on the road. Incorporating videos, a gallery of Arto’s best images and a narrative of the weeks-long trip, we get a sense for this unique melding of talents, both in front of and behind the lens. Check out the story at oakley.com/oakleyinoz.
Watching Eric Koston do what he does on a skateboard is just such a rewarding experience. Doesn’t matter if he’s in Barcelona or Copenhagen or Paris or Foothill Ranch, Calif, the guy is poetry on wheels. Jackson Pollock with darker skin. Which is why whatever video or webisode series or school play Koston takes part in while riding a skateboard or just being funny-guy Koston, we’ll watch. Hence, we present the “Theos Euro Snaps” web series.
