Living in Southern California means that you can sneak away to a foreign country in less than a couple of hours. Over the years traveling through Mexico has become increasingly more "adventurous." But Aaron Gomez and some friends of Sk8Trip decided to throw caution to the wind and go for it. With next to no budget, no maps, and no cell phone service, it was a minor miracle that they managed to meet up with their other buddies across the border.
Aaron is a big part of Sk8Trip, but he's a also a big-hearted skater. He always makes it a point to stoke out the local skaters by giving away his gear before heading home. He's the perfect GRN TM ambassador and it's entirely impossible not to smile when you're hanging out with Aaron and the crew.
Follow them along as they skate, surf, camp, eat, drink, and get lost along the way. With only one minor shakedown, zero arrests and smooth re-entry into the states, we'd have to that say this Sk8Trip was a complete success!
