Caliber Truck Co. – Microcosm


“The definition of Microcosm: a community, place, or situation regarded as encapsulating in miniature the characteristic qualities or features of something much larger. To us that perfectly describes the experience of the freestyle longboarding scene in Paris, France. This summer we sent the entire Caliber Trucks European Freestyle Team there to meet up with local and team rider Achel Machin to experience everything the scene has to offer. Tom Flinchbaugh joins them to capture everything and give you a window into the microcosm of freestyle skating.” – Caliber

Much more speedboarding action after the jump.
