Lance Mountain has made a four-decade long skateboarding career out of writing his own rules. The Pasadena-born skater took pool riding to a new technical level throughout the ‘80s, and he’s delivering on his patented style across multiple generations. An accomplished artist, Mountain is still progressing his creative impulse, serving as creative director and photographer (and participating skater, of course) for a roadtrip through the American Southwest with the Nike SB team that included Oski Rozenburg, Hjalte Halberg, and more. He even penned his own captions of the trip’s photos, which you can read below.
The road trip introduces this year's Nike SB X Lance Mountain collection, which includes the Lance Mountain Zoom Blazer Mid, the Zoom Blazer Chukka XT, and the Zoom Blazer Low Canvas Decon, along with select apparel.
The Nike SB X Lance Mountain Collection releases July 10 on nike.com and at select retailers.

“Photographer Marcel Veldman shoots behind the forbidden zone while Hjalte Halberg makes use of an Albuquerque drainage ditch."
“A spot check from Oski Rozenberg before the sun sets and the temperature drops in the Southwest climate.”
“As skateboarders, we are united by a common goal: do it however you want.”
“Oski’s switch grind with perfect body English just before vanishing into the dark abyss.”
“A full-speed power pop from Hjalte.”
“It’s all uphill from here.”
“Make it happen anyway you can.
Try more things.
Learn new ways,
For as long as it is fun.”
“A stencil bleach session during a roadside rest stop.”
“Find it or build it.
Oski enjoys a homemade paradise.”
"Oski discovers new ground."
"The bank's open for Hjalte Halberg."
"Social media photos and spot books never show or list the true difficulties of the situation. Cyrus, charging some backroad crust."
“Need somewhere to skate with your friends without the chance of getting kicked out? Build a backyard pool.”
