Back in January, Chris Silva and his dad embarked on a month long road trip from Toronto to Miami all in an attempt to escape the harsh Canadian winter and bask in some Southern sun. Silva also wanted to check off some bucket list items of famous spots that he’s seen in videos throughout the years and was lucky enough to find some newer ones along the way.
They hit a ton of cities, but most notable were: Nashville, Tennessee; Athens, Georgia; Orlando, Miami and back up the coast to Jacksonville in Florida. High tailing it through the Carolinas they hit up the White House and Smithsonian in Washington, D.C.; gambled in Atlantic City and finally got to New York/New Jersey where Silva hit up the Animal warehouse for a quick sesh and did some site seeing in the Big Apple.
Press play and go along for the ride with the Portuguese Hand Grenade and his pops.
Silva put in serious work for his part in ‘Any Means Necessary,’ an unreal amount of work, actually. So much time spent searching for spots over the years paid off huge. This isn’t even the tip of the iceberg. Get out to your local shop and get your FREE copy of ‘Any Means Necessary’ to see all of Silva’s part and be ready for your face to melt.
