“There’s no place like it on Earth…” - Billy O’Neill.
O’ahu, Hawaii - April 2021. What an amazing trip. We teamed up with the boys from Jump Street Podcast, Austin Paz and Billy O’Neill, and paid a visit to our brother Franco Cammayo who moved out to the island of O’ahu to serve for the U.S. Army. There, we linked up with the local scene and made some incredible memories from skating ditches and schools to the days where we hung out, had some beers, and took in all the scenery.
Hawaii is exactly what you think it is… beautiful. The people treat eachother, as well as treated us, like one big family and you really do get that welcoming feeling from the very start. I personally look forward to going back as often as possible and I hope to see more articles, like the be-mag piece, and more content coming from the islands as the scene continues to thrive with its amazing skaters and personalities. One love. Cheeee! Visit Buttertv.com.
