Dustin Spengler is just as talented on wheels as he is behind the camera. You can only imagine how much great footage there was to capture after a two-month road trip from the east coast to the west coast and back, in a van loaded with 9 talented bladers. When we found out he was putting together a video about the whole trip, we asked Dustin to tell us a little bit about the tour. He wrote us back and sent us some of his photos, showing the wonderful places they’ve visited, accompanied by a few screen grabs to give you a feeling of what to expect.

Make sure to visit one of the various premieres around the US (The Blading Cup, in Atlanta or Dallas), get yourself a physical copy or download the whole thing for only 5$ once it drops around Halloween.

I wont sit here and blab your ear off about what this tour represented, how its going to change blading, or make some played out point about some issue. The tour had its ups and downs like anything else in life, but boy those ups sure were nice. Two months on the road blading and exploring with 9 buds and and a pooch, doesn’t get any better.
