Mark Roberts for Wake Robins

Texas native Mark Roberts comes through with a brilliant four and half minute part for Wake Robins. Hit play to catch Mark handling some scary looking spots, as well as displaying a deft touch with some of those combinations.

There’s no music on the clip, and the YouTube description encourages you to pick your own, we were listening to this at the time and it worked kinda well.

Is it a company or more of a crew thing?

What’s the difference? This is my company, this is my crew, and these are my troops.

We workin’ to make loot for gold tooths…

What’s the idea behind it? What’s the direction you guys are heading towards? What about the Buddhist/esoteric/meditative touch?

The idea? It’s just happening… almost beyond me. I couldn’t say there is one idea that I would pinpoint aside from creating in some way shape or form. There is a ton of ideas… most of which die off and never physically manifest, and then there are the ones that do, which get put out, wether skateboarding, shirts, products and merchandise, or some other form of creative content. The direction is to create content that is megalithic in proportion, and increases, inspires and expands the creative consciousness of the individual’s soul and the universal soul. Sound good? Sounds good to me. Yes, esoteric touch, if you say so, sure why not. That part would be sharing information that may, or may not empower all sub-cultures and the underbelly of youths who are so easily mis-led and end up in places more hazardous then sought after. Maybe they can pick themselves up… who knows… I don’t.”
