That title is just the tip of the story with this, as Mike Manzoori (filmer/editor of etnies Grounded) and a large crew of Es skaters were in Lima, Peru, when they were robbed at gun point and one filmer was nearly shot. I normally wouldn’t post stuff that goes down in the skate world, but this shit is scary and something that all of us should be aware of. Everyone in the Ride office has had stuff like this go down--I’ve had a gun pulled on me while riding and got beat up in France while on Mega Tour Europe last year. So, even when things don’t seem shady, always have your guard up.
