Visual Traveling – The Edge of Arabia

Our globetrotting friend, skater and filmaker Patrik Wallner has really outdone himself this time with his latest skate video appropriately titled, “The Edge of Arabia.” He teamed up with Walker Ryan, Michael Mackrodt, and a few other smooth and skilled street technicians to drop a heavy dose of shredding upon the Middle East. Have a look; this film is not like any you’ve ever seen before.

And we tend to agree with what Thrasher magazine has mentioned about this film effort, “This is more than a skate video. This is a risky rendezvous into an unexplored pocket of the skateboarding universe, The Arabian Peninsula.”
