Skateboarding has always enjoyed a close relationship with creativity and style, each being complementary to each other.

The course was built for fun and fast skating and housed within a 74,000 square foot vacant industrial building in Southern California. I’m hyped to see the MODERN LINES course come to life,” comments pro skateboarder Curren Caples whose vision created a one of a kind course. “I wanted to build something fun for me and my friends to skate that blurred the lines of traditional street and transition courses. I’m stoked that MTN DEW helped take my idea and bring it to life with the entire skate team involved.”

All different types of equipment were at the finger tips of Mike McEntire.

The private session included the MTN DEW skate team, Sean Malto, Mariah Duran, Theotis Beasley, Curren Caples, and Chris Colbourn, along with their friends, Mason Silva, Jake Anderson, and Jenn Soto. Capturing all the action was Mack Dawg Productions, who include legendary skateboard filmmaker, director Mike McEntire, and director of photography Ty Evans.
