Mike Bloodsworth

All expenses paid

Although information is simultaneously overwhelmingly plentiful and lost in a scroll nowadays, for your own good, try and remember: Chris Thiessen is one of the heads behind the Threads Idea Vacuum think tank, and also responsible for the last TransWorld Sony VX-1000 full-lengths ("Riddles In Mathematics" being the curtains of what has been a saga; at the time, LIVE actually interviewed Chris about the making of such a production, here!).

Throughout the past few months, we've been introducing you to his new adventure: Free Travel, a clothing brand strong of colorful designs and not just one, but two video offerings already. Needless to specify, despite such business, Chris hasn't been leaving his trustworthy VX behind - at all - and is now adding a third installment to that series, after a few months of always better fine-tuning his fisheye dexterity around the company of the appropriately-named Matt Town and Mike Bloodsworth, this time - but also of Matt Field, who is seemingly set on never slowing down and earns himself a guest clip, because he can.

But the skateboarder Chris really wanted to highlight here is a new recruit: Josh Wilhite from Memphis who, according to him, turned out to be a delight to document as he's interested in spots of all types and forms, ensuring a fresh take on the streets of L.A. and its surroundings. We'll leave that up to your appreciation, now!

Free travel, bis!

Just a few weeks back, we were presenting you the first web edit for filmer Chris Thiessen and pimp John Lindsay's clothing brand: Free Travel. Well, they're back with a new production entitled "Trails", filmed over just four days in Los Angeles. The entire team (Chris AthansJesse NarvaezRyan BarlowMike Bloodsworth) shares the (literal) shine with a bunch of Northern Co. representatives, including a never-not-silky-smooth Jameel Douglas, and you're bound to feel the heat straight through the 3CCD prism - day and night!

Free Travel !

You aren't dreaming - yes, Free Travel! News even more exciting than you originally thought they would be, as that's actually the name of the newest S.F.-based clothing brand, a spiritual lovechild birthed by the hearts and souls of Bay Area OG John Lindsay (who's since moved, but had to leave some of his heavy legacy there) and filmmaker Chris Thiessen (notably the man behind the last few TransWorld SKATEboarding full-length videos to date; a topic he has discussed with us before, here!). The resulting garment isn't their only colorful output, too: so are the painted houses and warm tones so typical of the City that the Free Travel team zooms past; a roster comprising the ever-so-productive Chris Athans (Northern Co. and State's latest recruit), Jesse Narvaez (ex-Rasa Libre, Matt Field's company), a Ryan Barlow who always looks down to get high on a skateboard the specific mind-boggling ways he knows how, and then the appropriately named Mike Bloodsworth who goes in. This first edit of theirs actually makes you want to go on (idealistically free?) travels headed towards the hills of a particularly effervescent S.F. these days, as half the Free Travel crew just so happens to be involved in yet another promising, new enterprise: Loophole Wheels, with Zach Chamberlin. Unstoppable, these guys!

Raw Cali!

Those Threads guys know about that abraive and punchy street skating thing, and this compilation only confirms that fact, while also adding fire to the strange rumor stating that there is more to California than handrails in schoolyards!
