Titled by adidas Skateboarding U.S. Team Manager and iconic photographer, Skin Phillips, the film’s namesake nods the British futbol term ‘Away Days’ and compares the team pride and road trip camaraderie experienced amongst its team riders to the diehard enthusiasm of avid futbol (soccer) fans who travel together away from their hometowns to support their team at away games in rival cities.
Away Days captures the breadth of adidas’ diverse global and international teams, as they travel the world showcasing some of the best skateboarding moments both on and off the board. The full adidas team is featured on a limited-edition poster, which will be distributed to skate shops around the world.
