Follow Nike SB’s Team Through Lance Mountain’s Eyes

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.
