Brazil- Following the recent Malarrara Pro Teutonia World Cup, some of the world's best downhill skaterboarders spent the week caravaning around Southern Brazil filming a series for ESPN Brasil called, "Hill Hunters." The crew included Teutonia winner Douglas "Dalua" Silva, Scoot Smith, Kevin "K-Rimes" Reimer, Mischo Erban, Pete Connolly, Ethan Lau, Bricin "Striker" Lyons, Alexandre Maia, Fernando Yuppie, Felipe Cobra, Henrique Stein, Juliano Cassemiro and a bunch of other Brazilian skaters. Erik Lundberg and Justin Dubois also joined us for the first day. With a solid crew like this, we knew it would be a week to remember! Due to a series of unforeseen events, the trip turned into more of an exercise in international friendships and less about skateboarding. None the less, everyone still had an incredible time.
