A Day in Tucson (Arizona) with Zared Yates

One day in Tucson featuring Zared Yates and Derek Stanton, presented by The B Roll.

A Day in Tucson (Arizona) with Zared Yates

February 2013: I pack up my life and move to Tucson. Though only an hour southeast of Phoenix, the two Arizona cities are worlds apart.

The former is a bustling metropolis, a concrete sprawl of suburban decadence, a tres chic palm-tree-lined oasis. The latter, a small desert city not too far from Mexico and brimming with the charm and character of the Old West.

The neon signs of motels built in the 1950s line roads with names like Miracle Mile. Tucson is a real piece of Americana. Derek stopped in a few weeks ago and we shot this edit in an afternoon. – Ben Karris.

Grant Hazelton Blades in AZ (2011): Moustache Squad, Edit by Mike Torres

Grant Hazelton

Quoting Mike Torres:

He’s not my brother. He is also not my twin. He is the better looking, more responsible, more technical, more stylish, version of myself. He is my upgrade.

Perhaps he was sent here from the future to kill the young John Connor, and it is my job to save him regardless of the fact that I am a technically inferior model… I digress.

Grant is one of my best friends, and probably my favorite person to skate with. And boy can he pull off a mustache.

Filmed by Mike Torres & Gabe Holm.

Gary Murphy: Blading in AZ

I made them do it. All of them. If you wanted in on my AZ trip in 2011 you had to prove it by growing out your facial hair and shaving it into a mustache on the first day.

Gary was dedicated to the trip, so I’m dedicating this section to one of the most solid bladers, and most importantly, one of the most solid people, I know. – Mike Torres.
