Valo 6 is the culmination of 15 years of the Valo skate brand, filmed over the course of three years on five continents. Like the Valo brand itself, Valo 6 starts in the hills of San Francisco and travels to locations like New York, Los Angeles, Mexico, Brazil, Japan, and Thailand with sections from: Jon Julio, Alex Broskow, Victor Arias, Soichiro Kanashima, David Sizemore, John Vossoughi, and the video’s director, Ivan Narez, who celebrates many familiar faces from the diverse Valo familia all over the globe. Valo may be over, but the memories never will fade. We are Valo. We are Them.
