Adidas Skateboarding Respect Your Roots: Skin Phillips

Posted by Route One on 10th February 2016

Skateboarding as you know it today owes a great deal to a number of people whose sheer passion for the lifestyle helped shape it into what it has become. Swansea’s Skin Phillips is one of those people.

Released in line with adidas’ latest series of shoes, paying homage to the names and faces of those responsible for what we collectively are today, the video charts Skin’s early days in skateboarding, stemming from a love of surf photography, through his time as head honcho at Transworld to his current role as adidas skate TM.

Mixing archive footage with interviews from some of the biggest names in the game, it really does show you that hard work and passion can pay off if you want it enough. Respect your roots…
