Skateboarding, travel, art... there are a lot of things you can do to block out the bullshit of ever day life.

Californian skater and designer BB Bastidas knows this as well as anybody. He recently came to London, and explained how rolling on the streets and creating public art creates a deeper connection with the places he goes to.

Bastidas talks about that peculiar thing that will resonate with creatives and free spirits alike. That feeling of creating something, of freedom, and the connection to the world that your passions can give you.

Anybody that's ever stepped onto grip tape ,picked up a surf board, or strapped into a snowboard will know it well.
