Volvo Cars || The Get Away Car

For their latest campaign, Volvo brilliantly amplified an original speech by philosopher Alan Watts, recorded in 1959, against visuals that inspire to live your best life. 

"You reach a point in life when you have to choose. Career over passion. Work over play. It’s when surfers turn CEOs. Photographers turn lawyers. Fly-fishers turn doctors. Mountain climbers turn engineers."

"It's when you put a piece of yourself on hold. And as time passes, the things you used to love doing, start to fade away. This is a reminder to not forget what you love. All the activities that you once embraced."

This inspiring video will remind you to live fully now.

Push to Pedal || Documentary

A skateboarding and cycling experience/journey on the island of Fuerteventura. 

 'Push to Pedal' is a documentary about four skaters, turned-bike-builders who crafted custom frames specially for Carhartt WIP skaters (Joseph Biais, Joe Gavin, Giovanni Grazzani and Pete Ruikka).

 The group then hit the road together in Fuerteventura/ Canary Islands for a week long adventure of cycling, skating and exploration. 

 For one week, the whole crew stayed at the Casa Maccaroni, in Lajares, which is located in the middle of a desert pierced by only a few little volcanoes, in the north part of the island. From there they would cycle to spots on a average 45 km a day. Going to cities and villages, skating, coming back. 

 With no training, this trip turned out to be pretty tough for the skaters, but made them realize skate tours can be more than just sitting in a van to get to spots. A memorable experience for most of them.
