Das Days São Paulo

This August, we landed in Brazil for a couple weeks of skating alongside the events of Das Days São Paulo. We had our hands full with a mix of art shows, live music, demos, signings and Brazilian meat buffets. The crew was Rodrigo Teixeira, Felipe Gustavo, Klaus Bohms, Wacson Mass, Heitor Da Silva, Dennis Busenitz, Lucas Puig, Diego Nájera, Jenn Soto, Alec Majerus, Magnus Bordewick and the adidas Latin American team.
