As kids growing up, summer time was usually marked by overnight camp—when mom and dad would sign you up for what you’d hope would be a fun time at a cool place that would host interesting activities and events. But as a free and full-fledged adult, you can’t really sign up for those anymore, and you’re pretty much on your own in terms of hobbies and thrill-seeking. Or you could just be the prestigious Nike SB team who gets to continue the camp-like ritual via summer trips and skateboard in places like South America’s Argentina.
“Camp Pain” is the cleverly titled and sweetly produced edit showcasing The Swoosh squad’s exquisite physical abilities on the board. Together, a dream team cast of riders that includes Cory Kennedy, Eric Koston, Grant Taylor, Vincent Touzery, Kevin Terpening, Matt Bublitz, Ishod Wair, and Diego Bucchieri hit the pavement, banks, bumps, and rails hard AF to the tune of Fungi Girls’ “Lucie”, a retro surf rock track with ripping energy and adrenaline to match the shredding.
Do the right thing, pop this one on and give summer the love it deserves, because it might only be around for just a few more weeks.
