DVS’ Grip It And Phlip It Tour Video—Daniel Goes Home
Back in December of 2009, DVS riders Chico Brenes, Daniel Castillo, Kenny Hoyle, Zered Bassett, Jeron Wilson, and Torey Pudwill headed south of the equator to the island nation of the Philippines for a tour. Little did they know that this adventure would prove to be one of the wildest journeys of all time. Not only did veteran DVS pro Daniel Castillo get to shred some of the best skate spots in his native country, but the rest of the crew got to experience the Philippines at it’s finest. From jungle demos and police escorts to epic spots and bizarre local cuisine, the DVS crew picked up tour memories they won’t soon forget. Watch it here.
