An epic crusade brings together this team of skateboarders from Argentina, Brasil, Chile, Costa Rica, Colombia, Panama, Mexico and Peru with a bold goal in mind: to cross Latin America looking for the continent’s open veins. Inspired by the great adventurers of this enormous and complex land, adidas Skateboarding’s Latin American team travels to untapped places, revealing the region’s cultural power.

The subhead of DAS AMERICAS — “As long as blood runs through our veins” — pays tribute to Colombian writer José María Torres Caicedo, author of “Las dos Americas” [The Two Americas]. His 1857 poem marks the first register of the term “Latin America” with some of its literary fragments genuinely representing the message skateboarders spread in the streets worldwide: “Freedom for yourself—with others, peace and friendship.”

DAS AMERICAS was filmed in Mexico City, Buenos Aires, São Paulo, Santiago, Lima, Bogotá and Panama City.

During the stops, the Latin American team formed by Akira Shiroma, Bastian Núñez, Daniel Vela, Federico González, Geronimo Bravo, Joakin Goto, Kervin Miranda, Vitória Mendonça and Paula Costales was captured in movement by the lens of the experienced director Marco de Souza.

Additional adidas team riders include Rodrigo Teixeira, Heitor Da Silva, Klaus Bohms, Guilherme Silva, Alec Majerus, Jake Donnelly, Maité Steenhoudt, Tamara Iturra, Marina Gabriela, Luchi Cristóbal, Marcelo Garcia, Christian Dawson, Daniel Marques, Vinicius Santos, Breno Franco, Thiago Neves, Michael Scott, Osmar Cardenas, Alberto Navarro, Enrique Rosso, Guille Gellona, Rogelio Smith, Alejo Giraldo, Mathias Masseur and Alan Gonzalez.
