2015年8月4日发布Here at Afends we've jumped on the hemp bandwagon and are riding this proverbial train to more sustainable pastures. To celebrate our self proclaimed sustainable legends status, we headed out to the largest hemp field in Australia, threw together a half pipe (literally, we built it on the day - DIY till we die!), and skated the crap out of our mini ramp right in the centre of a damn hemp field.
Along with us we bought Australian skaters Boyd Young and Bibi Bradbury, videographers from Flamingo Amigo, photographer Sam Nolan and we threw in surfer Josh Sleep for good measure. Oh, and a few cartons of VB. Classic.
Featuring music by Brooklyn band, The Mad Doctors.

Skating a ramp in a squat or bar or treehouse is rad, but if the ramp is actually good as well you’re into some whole ‘nother level, transcendental shit. This post examines some of the best oddly placed ramps thrown up by both our collective memories and the darkest depths of the internet, enjoy…
