Pandect Zine has posted their interview with Silva about spot hunting from their first issue. Chris goes deep about the thrill and drive to search for spots, rail manoeuvres, and touchier subjects regarding spot etiquette. There are a lot of good quotes to pull, so click here to read the whole interview, then go explore where you live.
Back in July Silva and Dill jumped in a van with the Ten Pack crew and drove from Toronto to Ottawa to Montreal for a weekend or riding and a shop jam (Dillon’s riding got cut short from a bad slam). Check out the video from their trip and a gallery of some behind the scenes photos from the road here.
