Jumbo: Barcelona, Day 1 (Episode 24) - PLAY

After Winterclash 2024, me and the boys traveled to Barcelona for a week to skate. This was day 1. It was rough. No tour guide, no real plan, just stumbling into spots. But, luckily we’re not spoiled with spots, so anything is pretty fun.

I feel like you always see a lot of the same spots when people film in Barcelona, so I was excited to maybe look at some old spots with a fresh take on it. Pretty sure the first building we skated was skated by Danny Beer, so the escalator was off limits. But I’m pretty sure the gap to gutter is untapped… I dunno. It’s a safe assumption to assume that everything we touched has been thoroughly destroyed. Who knows. The next spot was basically a skatepark, which I think is a first for one of our “4 the streets” things, but that’s ok. It was a good warm up day. - PLAY.

Jumbo: Barcelona, Day 2 (Episode 25) - PLAY

Texas is a big state. A lot of things here are very spread out. Not a lot of cities have good public transportation so you have to drive to most places if you want to get anything done. That’s what we do when we skate, we drive from spot to spot. That is NOT what people do in Barcelona and we were ill prepared for it. The first day, we took it at our own pace, just bopped around the neighborhood and skated whatever we saw.

The second day, we met up with dudes from all over the place. And we skated… and skated. and skated. I clocked as many miles on skates as I was doing when I was 14 before I had a car. Which was great, an amazing way to view the city and honestly really fun. Buuuuut… Incredibly taxing if you’re not accustomed to it. Somehow we survived and still had the energy to skate the spots. First spot was absolute ice. Not sure what that ground was made out of, but it was impossibly slick. It was also a skatepark, which is rare for us to skate. We left quickly.

Nick Lomax took us to the second spot expecting us to skate these line ledges, but as things happen we found a trampoline, a couple of gutter spots and a broken down ol’ bench to skate. I dunno, the whole day was good. Eating fresh oranges out of the tree. Taking a side quest to see the ocean. Getting lost and dodging the rain. Thank you Immony Men for helping me film from time to time.

If anyone hear has heard of Orange Wheel Company, that’s his. The dudes cool and I’ve got nothing but respect. So if you see those wheels, it’s always a good idea to support our real ones. That’s enough ranting. Another day down. - PLAY.

Jumbo: Barcelona, Day 3 (Episode 26) - PLAY

Day 3! We’ve made it to the final half of the trip and we’re on our own again. We’re meandering around without tour guides again. Warming up on aluminum downrails and finding the trash spots of BCN. - PLAY.

Jumbo: 4 the Streets. Episode 22-23 - Battle my Crew

Episode 23 - Austin VS Dallas - PLAY - February 2024

Battle my crew 6: Austin vs Dallas was in full effect. I better go ahead and say “im kidding” before Videogroove hits me with a “cease and desist”, haha. The boys from all over visited this weekend. Every weekend this past month has been crazy. We had Stefan Brandow in town, BFree was here the next weekend and now we have Mick, Troy and Jordan from Colorado. If that wasn’t enough, about 15 people from Dallas came down to skate as well. I’d say it was a good Saturday. A bit of a cluster finding street spots that can cater to everyone and also not be a bust, but we survived. I have so much to say, but as usual, I’m finishing this late at night and I’m at my wits end so… Cutting this one short. No one reads these anyway I’m sure. Love everyone. - Cody Sanders.

Jumbo: 4 the Streets. Episode 22-23 - Battle my Crew

Episode 22 - ‘Petite Session’ - PLAY January 2023

This was a smaller session than normal. A majority of the crew was invited to a wedding, so there was only a few of us left for the Saturday session. Since it was just the few of us, we stuck to our neighborhood. Usually on the weekends, someone has a specific area we all car pool too. It’s a chance to try and escape from the normal spots we’ve all been going to for the past decade or two. I know what you’re thinking, “man that wood ledge looks perfect, I’d destroy that spot! Why’d they just do a soul grind ?” It’s so much harder than it looks… - Cody Sanders.

Jumbo: Inspin & Outspin - Tutorial +

Jumbo: Inspin & Outspin - Tutorial +

If you followed my channel before it was called Jumbo, you’ll know one of the things I was interested in doing was making how-to videos. I always felt like there was way more to skating than was being shown to beginners and I wanted to try and give those ideas a home. I was only able to get through about 5 of the instructional videos before an old lingering knee injury took me out of the game for a couple of years. A blessing in disguise I guess, because being hurt inspired me to create Jumbo. But Now that I can skate again, I want to keep the idea alive.

Jumbo: Inspin & Outspin - Tutorial +

When I get interested in something, I’ll spend waaay too much time learning about. Learning about all the little technical differences in this or that. I’m that way with most of my hobbies outside of skating. I know I’m not the only one that thinks that way and since there are so many newcomers to skating lately, I think it’s important to clearly define what we’re doing.

It might have been documented somewhere a long time ago, in an old magazine or VHS tape that’s in someones closet collecting dust. So I think it’s worthwhile to put these ideas on the internet so we can actually talk about them. Anywho, I do a lot of this off the top of my head. So if you’re watching it and thinking “ah, he should have mentioned ’this/that’”, you’re probably right. Like I say at the end, thank you to everyone that supports Jumbo. You’re all cool as hell. More to come. - Cody Sanders.

Jumbo @ Carriers Open 2023 (Frisco, Texas) + Results

Tue, Nov 14, 2023

Carriers Open - November 11, 2023. Frisco, Texas.

Wow. Where do I start? Fritz Peitzner, Carriers, the city of Frisco did such a great job putting on this event. The turn out was really massive. The park is really spread out, but even with that in mind you can tell the numbers were huge. I want to write in depth about the event, give you every detail, etc… But I’m going to leave that to whoever is handling the legit edit. This is the non-legit edit. This is the Jumbo experience… So here’s how it went from our perspective.

I’ve never ran a booth before… Hell, I didn’t even know this was going to be a company when I started it. It’s a joke that’s gotten really, really out of hand. I love it. I didn’t think about this beforehand, but running a booth, a side event, trying to skate a little AND film an edit of the experience is… A lot. Almost too much, but I still managed. Thank god for the crew helping me hold it down.

Bcam basically covered the booth and sales the whole time, Gogo and Aaron helping me film. Heath, Ant and Caleb helping me facilitate our mystery event… Oh my god, I can’t believe they let us do the mystery event, hahaha. Jumbo World Tournament. It was so stupid. No one had a clue, not even the people running the contest. I’m not sure how people actually felt about it. I can’t really remember much of it, because I was so focused on announcing. I edited the footage, but I do it all so quickly I haven’t taken the time to really grasp the crowd reaction yet… But if you ask me? I laugh every time. I laugh just thinking about it. That’s really all I want to do, just have a good time.

If we’re ever allowed to do another mystery event, it might be more focused towards skating… But I love the slapstick, pie-in-the-face, loony toons nature of it all. Without ranting for too long (because I’m sure maybe only 10 people read these descriptions anyway), I think everything about the event was a success. I love my friends. I love the rollerblading scene. I especially love EVERYONE that came by the booth and said what up. For real, I say it every time and I mean it… I’m shocked that people care. I care so much about skating and about us as a community, it’s just really great to know that there are people out there that I can resonate with. Thank you to everyone that came out, that shows love, that watches this… This is the best. Jumbo forever. - Cody Sanders.
