Jenkem | Mardi Gras with Nora Vasconcellos

“Skateboarding (probably) won’t make you rich, but it can definitely make you rich in experiences. Case in point: What other job would randomly fly you to Mardi Gras to party and interview Nora? When Adidas asked if we might be interested in the idea as a way to promote her new shoe colorway, we quickly agreed as neither Nora or ourselves had ever been to New Orleans and were curious to check out one of the biggest parties of the year. With additional help from Philly (New Orleans native & Owner of Humidity Skate Shop) as a host and tour guide, we headed down to ride the wave of parties, film an interview with Nora while she was injured, and learn from the locals.” – Jenkem
