Sho Ouellette Kidnapped to Colombia // Valhalla Skateboards [Video]

When your sponsor says come get epic footage in a tropical country where the cops are loose and the tree’s are always covered in ripe fruit, you generally say yes.

I can’t tell if Colombia is the best place to skate, or the best skaters go get filmed by the best film maker in Colombia. But does it really matter? Its warm, there are lots of roads to skate, and living is cheap! Going abroad to skate downhills can be extremely affordable as you can take advantage of what we call the “Global downhill hostel”. Find the local downhill fb page, post that you are a Canadian looking to rip, and BAM, there are couches for you to sleep on! Well, Sho Ouellette had his rubber arm twisted and he found himself in colombia doing exactly that, and stacking clips for Valhalla Skateboards of course.
