Worble x GNU: A Two Day Trip to Bear with ManRamp
| February 10th, 2022 |
Skateboarding’s acclaimed spot facilitator decided to try his luck with Peter Cerulo and Forest Bailey at Bear Mountain. Suffice to say, his presence allowed for two fun-filled days with the GNU and Worble homies. Thanks for coming over to the dark side, Bert (yeah, he has a real name).
The Worble x GNU Project:
“A special skate / snow / sled / hard hat / mustached / great vibes project between kindred Vermont spirits. Forest Bailey grew up skating and snowboarding in Vermont and inevitably ran into the Mull family and friends (aka Worble) ripping and expressing creativity on boards and beyond. Bailey brought his skateboarding to the snow and became one of the world’s best skate influenced snowboarders as well as a talented artist. The Mulls brought their whole Worble scene out west and released some of the most influential, jaw dropping, smile inducing skate videos of all time. Now the Worble is a full on skate brand and have recently linked back up with Forest on skateboard art which in turn opened the door for this here magical collaboration. The Worble’s unique blend of skate hammers, physical comedy, family atmosphere and general celebration of the freestyle life is similar to the dream Gnu was founded on and still operates under to this day; have fun with your friends, get rad, get weird, create.
Forest and Peter Cerulo met up with a menagerie of Worblers for a classic Bear Mountain weekend of packed park laps and Manramp fueled hilarity. Featuring the ramp himself plus Worble’s pro skaters Chris “Cookie” Colbourn and Dave Mull as well as a deep bench including Steve Mull, Eunice Chang, Janthavy Norton, Stan and more. Tom Mull did the lens work and the edit to a groovy Lustt track. Dreams do come true.”
