Sitka has shared a trailer for their upcoming skateboard video entitled Into The Thicket and after watching it, I can’t wait to see the whole thing. If you have ever been to Vancouver, B.C. you know it is an immensely beautiful place. With Into the Thicket we follow the journey of a few skateboarders’ as they trek into the forests of Vancouver Island to skate a ramp constructed using the surrounding environment and few other materials. This has to be one of the most peaceful and utterly enchanting places to skate on the planet. The video features skateboarders Chris Haslam, Todd Myers and Mat Howell with music that perfectly sets the tone by Woodsman.
Sitka is a brand with a keen emphasis on environmental and social responsibility. They have formed a collective of like-minded individuals; a lifestyle brand designed by the sea and woven by a common thread. At the center of our collective consciousness is a reverence for our environment – both the natural and urban worlds that we have created for ourselves. Sitka is a product of these environments, in which we find ourselves so at home.
They’re found wandering the peaks and valleys of the mountain passes; trekking the low lying coastal trails of the Jaun de Fuca; drifting through the swell of the Salish Sea; wandering the rainy city blocks of the urban commute; and, submersed in the warm lakes of the British Columbia summer. And, if you’ve found yourself in these places; places where the fog clings to the trees and the ocean breathes salty breath on your face, remind yourself that there is no bad weather where there’s good clothing. And, for that, Sitka has got you covered.
