I hope to travel as Kevin's filmer to document his travels through Australia and New Zealand.
Kevin Kowalski is an Oregon based amateur skateboarder who for the last five years has been climbing the ladder of skateboarding through media coverage and contest results, Kevin is a naturally gifted skateboarder with an inherent ability to shred whatever is put before him. His skateboarding is one of a kind, Kevin adapts quickly to new terrain with style and grace. If you see him skate in person - it will most certainly be an unforgettable, and pleasing experience.
This year for the first time Kevin, thanks to the support of Lifeblood Skateboards (whom bought him a plane ticket), is travelling down to Australia and New Zealand for a World Cup Skateboard contest circuit.
My name is Daniel Evans, I am a skateboard filmmaker and have been Kevin Kowalski's personal videographer through the years, my project is to travel with Kevin to the southern hemisphere and document his first-time experiences with this new terrain and cover the often aggressive, and competitive aspects of skateboarding.
I plan to make a skate video/documentary of the entire trip, with introspective commentary from Kevin and fellow contestants. The video will show aspects of the joys and bourdon of international travel, highlighting his unique skateboard journey through Australia and New Zealand.
